Namibia is safe but aside from sand dunes and the okavango not much is going on there.
I've been to Swaziland and would highly recommend it - Royal Swazi Spa is an awesome hotel with a great golf course and it's close to the local markets where the shop owners will do anything to get your business.
Piggs peak is pretty boring tbd but I went with my uncle who wanted to gamble and the casino is pretty bad - if you go that side to hike you would probably have a good time.
South Africa is great, lots of good safaris. Cape Town is one of my favorite places in the world- the wine regions, like Stellenbosch and Franshoek, are both beautiful.
I also spent a lot of time in Botswana, which is a nice place to see. Gabarone is a nice city, the culture is friendly and refreshing (it's customary to chat up whoever you're standing with for more than 3 seconds).
Talked to a Senegalese local recently, he was afraid in his own country as a law-abiding citizen and described nothing but horrible shit. You aren't safe if you want to have a decent life as a human being free from worry. Which safe country has curfews, m80?
>>1073890 Okay, I'll bite. Just because a country has a conflict somewhere within its borders, does not mean the entire country is unsafe. Most of these countries, even Somalia, has safe parts it's possible to visit. Some, such as Morocco and Tunisia, I fail to see why you have them on there, as there's no conflict there that I can think of at all. Some others, such as the CAR, which currently has a genocide going on, or Burundi and South Sudan, with massive political unrest, you have plainly left out. Your list of conflicts is haphazard at best, you display a horrible lack of knowledge, and all in all I'd give your post a 1/10 simply because at least you managed to fill in the correct countries on your map. Now fuck off to /int/.
After Australia/New Zealand and Vietnam I want to backpacking in eastern africa. Starting in Capetown and then Mozambique/Tanzania/Kenya/Ethiopia. I'am a frugal traveller so I don't need a real hostel just a bed. I thought doing some woofing and why not working with an NGO.
Right now I get my WHV in Australia and I want to save money for Africa. How much do you think need for at leat 5/6mounth (or more I don't care, I don't wanna back at home now)
>>1073539 Cape Town. Built around a mountain. Beaches. Nice buildings as long a you stay away from the Flats. Joburg. Started as a mining camp. Whores and saloons. Main big city. Puts on a crime face. Main hotel closed down because of street mutts. Getting somewhat better. Both cities transit are improving but still suck compared to northeast US cities.
I was in Dakar a couple of weeks ago, still have friends living there. It's fine. It's poor, obviously, and one does attracts attention, but it's not like fucking 80s South Central or a warzone or whatever. I'm a very obvious white guy, so are my friends, and even my female friends are not especially nervous about doing whatever in the streets.
I'm tired of these "Afropeans" sucking on western countries dicks, happy to have electricity 24/7 and shitting on their own country. They're just as responsible for the dire situation of their country as those who're still there, ffs.
Anyway, OP, many countries to visit, just don't go the obvious warzones or high tension areas : CAR, North Nigeria, Mali, Sudan...
If you can't speak French, don't go to any French speaking countries, coz English there is... spotty at best, you will have enough trouble navigating those countries, you don't need to be lost in translation on top of that.
Anyway, some recommended countries there are : Rwanda, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Senegal, Tanzania.
Just like you don't start traveling in Asia with Bangladesh, but rather with Thailand. Start off with an easy country, like Rwanda. Beautiful, relatively friendly people, good food, good music.
Remember people throughout the continent are still quite stuck in a colonial mindset, so don't be surprised if people call you bwana or boss. Kindly explain you don't like that too much. There are a few racists going to rant on you if you're a foreigner (especially white), but that's really rare.
Prepare for corruption though, with some exception (like Rwanda).
