The Top Ten places to visit in Africa
Valley of the Kings, Egypt
This is where kings and other nobles were laid to rest between 1600 and 1100 B.C.
It has since become a very popular tourist destination with some 5-6000 weekly visitors who come to explore the 63 tombs, amongst them the tomb of the King Tutankhamun, whose discovery led to the valley becoming one of the most famous archeological sites in the world.
Victoria falls, Zambia – Zimbabwe borders
Victoria Falls has the reputation of being the largest curtain of falling water in the world.
In the wet season, over 500 million liters of water pass over the edge of Victoria Falls and the spray generated reaches 1000 feet into the sky.
An awe-inspiring way to view the waterfall is from the knife-edge bridge, located near the falls, which gives a view not only of the falls themselves but also the "Boiling Pot", where the river churns and bubbles from all the built up pressure.
