Top 10 Incredible Natural Wonders in Africa

 Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

At 5885 m (19 308 ft) high Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Actually it is a volcano, composed of three distinct cones. It is not a very difficult mountain to climb – you don’t have to be a professional. However, the sickness due to the altitude often prevents from reaching the 5,895 m (19,341 ft) tall peak. On the top of it there are glaciers that are really pretty.

Namaqualand, Namibia and South Africa

The location does not look impressive at all – it is dry, arid and plain. However during spring it changes into something surreal. Thousands of colorful flowers start to bloom and spread a fragrant cloud over Namaqualand. Tourist often come to admire the site.

Mount Nyiragongo, Democratic Republic of the Congo

An active volcano is famous for housing the biggest lava lake in the world. The volcano’s slopes are steep and lava is very fluid, thus enabling it to flow in high velocity when it erupts. However, the lava lake is not constantly present. It takes years to form and after that it is a question of days when the walls of the crater will crack and lava erupt.

Underwater Waterfall, Mauritius

The remote island in the Indian Ocean, 2,000 km (1,200 mi) away from Africa, is a very attractive tourist destination. The underwater waterfall, located on the southwestern shore, might serve as a signature of Mauritius. It isn’t an actual waterfall, but an optical illusion: the sediment of sand and silt create this dramatic site. The reason for this is that the island is relatively new and a formation of it is still present, causing an underwater slope.

The Blyde River Canyon, Mpumalanga, South Africa

Probably the most beautiful canyon in the world stretches for 25 km (16 mi) to the north of the Drakensberg. It certainly is the biggest green canyon on Earth: lush foliage covers the precipitous red sandstone cliffs. Besides the thick forests, the canyon is also home for various species: hippos, antelopes and numerous primates. It also features several waterfalls and viewpoints.

Namib Desert, Namibia

One of the most fascinating views we have ever seen is found in Namibia, where Namib Desert meets Atlantic Ocean. However, there is no other way seeing it but from the plane. The vast desert sprawls for thousands of kilometres before it drops into cold and tempestuous waves. However, there are dunes that can be approached on tour and also Kolmanskop – a ghost town, ruined by the desert, today a popular tourist destination.

The Victoria Falls

Bordering two countries – Zambia and Zimbabwe – the gorgeous waterfall is one of the most popular in the world. The waterfall was named after Queen Victoria by a Scottish explorer David Livingstone. However, the locals call it Mosi-oa-Tunya – the smoke that thunders. Moreover it has an unusual Devil’s Pool – a natural pool on the Zambia’s side.
