Climb the Nyiragongo Volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo. For a long time, it was not possible to climb the volcano due to the unrest in the country, however, that has all changed. Congo is the last frontier of Africa, just waiting for intrepid travelers to come and explore.
Visitors looking to properly explore the highlands can follow a historical route over several days that includes all major sites worth visiting, including the capital Addis Ababa, Bahir Dar and Lake Tana, Gonder, Simien Mountains, Aksum, and Lalibela. The churches at Lalibela were hewn by hand out of basalt rocks over 700 years ago.

Perhaps the biggest — and most daunting — item on many African travel bucket lists is a trip from south to north, or north to south. The epic journey from Cape to Cairo can take many forms — intrepid travelers have achieved the feat on bicycle, motorcycle, in large overland vehicles, in small cars, and even on foot.

Gorilla Trekking in Uganda

Table Mountain, South Africa
An exhilarating hike up to the Plateau of Table Mountain is rewarded by outstanding views of the scale and sheer beauty of the Cape Town surrounds. You’ll need to set aside two to three hours for the walk-up, but at least you can ride the cableway back down again.
Devils`s Pool, Victoria Falls
Africa's ultimate infinity pool can be found on the edge of the mighty Victoria Falls (on the Zambian side). Devils Pool is itself a natural rock pool which can only be accessed during the dry season (September - end of January). Put your hand on the ledge and look down 108m (355 feet) of one of the greatest waterfalls in the world. Not for the faint-hearted and equally unforgettable.
The Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe, is also known as The Smoke that Thunders — a name you can only truly appreciate when you stand in the dense mist of the falls.
