Yep that's me, a poor broke white trash kind of chap. Next thing you know, I'll be across the pond knocking on your door in Londontown, after I have me a nice long look at the beautiful Thames. Now piss off you witless Black dweeb!

I don't think ppl are visiting countries like Nigeria. Lagos is a dangerous place . And sure you need a vaccination programe to most African countries. I was in Africa and most ppl I know was there. There are many diseases to watch out for such as bilharzioses and foodpoisoning. I don't go again if I have no business there.
I heard Andrew Zimmerman, the host from the tv show Bizarre Foods, got food poisoning while eating in South Africa. I won't eat much there when we do visit, but it sounds nice to visit some African countries. Which African country have you visited?

In south africa you should try to visit the cape of 2 seas (where the atlantic ocean meets the atlantic). you can actually get to see whales and dolphins.
I am also reading about how there are lots of schools of dolphins off the coast of Gambia. Gambia has always intrigued me, a tiny country stuck in the middle of another country (Senegal) but with its own coastline. So many places to visit, so little time ...
Thanks for the tips. I'd love to see that, dolphines and whales and such. I hear South Africa is nice, particularly where the beaches are. We'd like to visit Senegal as well. I hear it's beautiful there and I've seen pictures of various spots there. What exactly intrigues you about Gambia? What do you think about Madagascar?

originally fromm Ghana (ashamed to say I did not do muchof the touristy stuff there, but we all ignore the tourism around us).

have been to south africa a number of times, mozambique (1 night, loved it), nigeria, zambia, kenya, tanzania, senegal, cote d'ivoire, morrocco. also done other countries on other continents (was in Pakistan in early 2000s).

you can get food poisoning everywhere (i got my worst food poisoning in the US). just limit raw salads and go for well cooked steaks and meats. family owned restaurants tend to be better bets because they eat their own food so they are more careful than places where the waiters and cooks are not allowed to eat the food.

have fun.

My idea of Vacation always include some kinda water resort or cultural site. The Caribbean is known for this & Africa has a lot of unique cultures & wildlife.

Of course not. Whats a tourist to do there? Fall into quicksand, get sleeping sickness from being bit by the tse tse fly, malaria, heat exhaustion or get eaten by the natives?

Very nice and interesting. Thanks for the tips too. How was Morocco? I remember dating a guy from there and he said he loves it there but he travels a lot including to France.

Senegal is great but it is very laid back (if you can believe that somewhere can be too peaceful!). And they have this french framily that makes an incredible ice cream, I think the shop is famous enough and you can get directions by asking most people in Dakar.

Gambia, what intrigues me? it is a tiny country, with english as its official language. It is basically stuck in the middle of Senegal (whose official language is french) but it has its own coastline. gambia does not have much natural resources but started building up a serious tourism industry (better than Senegal and all the other countries close by). and it is ruled by a crazy dictator who still manages to attract a lot of Europeans. check out the youtube video, the Sheraton built on the sea feels amazing!

what do I think of Madagascar? I have not been there but I have been to its smaller neighbour, Mauritius. It is an interesting part of the world because you have indigenous Africans, chinese, indians and malays living together with some beautiful mixutres. Madagascar apparently has more sights and sounds than Mauritius. definately worth visiting. as I said, so many places, so little time...

Loved Morrocco, wished I had stayed longer. My colleagues loved the street markets (bargaining can take a whole afternoon). I also spent 2 hours sitting in a rug bazaar with one of the most crafty but engaging carpet sellers. he even offered to add one of his wives to his most expensive carpet. It ws such a pleasant afternoon, with a lot of laughing and tea (you wont believe how much sugar they can put in their tea, I thought the whole country would be diabetic but somehow they are not, probably the organic food and herbs). Like I said, I was fascinated by the snake charmers, there was something compelling about them and their snakes and flutes. Oh and itis a very secular country, the educated women are very fashionable.

Nigerian weddings are the bomb!!!! They spend so much money to glorify their brides and make a statement. Have they given you the choice of lace and colors yet? You should take a stash of $5 bills, they normlly hire a live band and the 'big men' plaster the foreheads of the musicians with bills, preferably Euro and dollar bills. YOu must represent the US and make sure you have some dollar bills.

Lol, he has the typical narrow mindedness of an ignorant white american. I actually know one tour organizer back home in Ghana who says that she often gets groups of European and Australian tourists who ask that they do not want any americans with their groups because the americans tend to be uncultured and biased against everything.
One interesting development in African tourism over the past 5 years has been the uptick in the number of young africans actually doing these tourist destinations in their own countries and other countries. That local tourism is very good in my opinion, it helps africans get to know each other and each other's countries. Our parents used to save a lot (to send their kids to school etc) then they will have one big 'lifetime' trip before they die. the young generation is not like that and weekend destinations on the continent are now very common.
this ghanaian singer features a lot of the beaches and inland destinations in her video, they are all within driving distance of the capital city.

Eight years ago I visited Egypt on vacation to see the pyramids. When we arrived at the Great Pyramid of Giza, I started laughing uncontrollably and literally couldn't stop for five minutes. When I finally composed myself the tour guide asked me what was so funny. When I told him that I tried to imagine negroes building that pyramid he started laughing even harder than I was laughing. Then the laughing got contagious and the whole tour group started laughing. Then I told him how back home, AA's are always saying that King Tut was black. Then he really lost it. He was laughing so hard you could have knocked him down with a feather. I also ask him if it was true that Napoleon had the nose shot off the Sphinx because it's nose resembled a negro's. At this point he actually had to sit down flat on the ground he was laughing so hard. He was crying tears of laughter. At one point, he was actually making those silent type of laughs when you run out of breath. Too funny.
Yes.......It's "too" funny that you cave dwellers can't build or figure out to build a Pyramid today, LMBAO!!!!!!

Let's not forget the fact that you probably wouldn't be able to afford a trip to Africa
