We do not know if it is its landscapes, its smells and flavors, its people or simply the combination of all this, but it is undoubted that when you travel to Africa a part of your heart stays there forever. You will return home with an indescribable feeling.
To talk about all the wonders of this diverse continent, we would need to write many articles, so today we are going to give you a small dose of all that Africa has to offer.
The Great Serengeti Migration
The Serengeti migration, traditionally called the Great Migration, is the largest mammal migration in the world.
Every year, at the end of the rainy season, the millions of animals that inhabit the plains of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania head north in search of more fertile land, with abundant vegetation and water.
In a place like Africa, where wild life roams like no other continent, it could not be understood that one of its natural wonders was not, precisely, an animal phenomenon.
Makgadikgadi Salt Flats in Botswana
They are located in the dry savanna of northeastern Botswana, southern Africa. They are one of the largest in the world (similar in size to Portugal).
Most of the year it is dry and totally desert, so you can venture into miles and miles of salt, which reflects the sun at sunset in a spectacular way.
