Why Not Africa?

Map of Africa

Over the last couple of weeks while marketing my annual trip to Africa to visit the ancient sites of Egypt, several people told me that they are considering joining us in the future because they haven’t visited Africa. All of them though told me about their travel plans this year and surprisingly most have plans to travel to Europe. Others not going to Europe this year have already traveled there.

I then wondered to myself why is travel to Europe a priority and travel to Africa an after- thought. In short “Why Not Africa?” And even though I believed that many are aware of the following about Africa:

  • It is firmly recognized that the birthplace of all humanity is Africa. [1]
  • Africa has 30% of the remaining world’s resources. [2]
  • There are over one million animal species in Africa!
  • The Nile River in Africa is longest river in the world.
  • Africa can’t be so bad since the colonizing countries not only wanted it but took it except for Ethiopia and Liberia which are the only two countries not colonized.
  • And last but not least, Kamit/Egypt, not the USA of today or Great Britain, Rome, or Greece of the past was the greatest country in the history of the world.

I realized that this is not known to all as Egypt began to be vilified by the late 18th and 19th century writers to support the colonization of Africa and the slave trade. So I write this to share some advantages to traveling to Africa (Egypt/Kamit specifically) that not everyone is aware of such as:

  1. exchange rate, your dollars will go further in Egypt than in European countries
  2. climate, Egypt has an arid desert climate and is generally both hot and sunny most of the year compared with that of European countries.
  3. visiting Egypt is more of an archeological expedition trip where one can witness and journey into the historical past of their ancestors.

And last but most importantly, safety concerns, it is safe to travel to Africa the birthplace of civilization.[3] 

 

Choose Africa by joining us in July 2019 as we visit the ancient sites of Kamit/Egypt!
