We have compiled a list of natural wonders in Africa that you have to see to believe. They are inspiring and some of these might already be on your bucket list. Keep reading to learn about ten awe-inspiring natural wonders you can only see in Africa!

10 10. Nile River

The Nile River is the longest river in the world and a must-see if you plan on spending some time in Africa. It is unique as it flows from south to north which baffled many ancient civilizations. This river empties into the Mediterranean Sea and consists of dark mud, and it serves as a form of transportation.

It has been used for trade and irrigation purposes as well, and a trip down this famed river is well worth your time. It encouraged innovation in Egyptian culture as it grew papyrus, which was an integral part of creating things like paper, rope, and cloth.

9 9. Serengeti Migration

This is the movement of over two million wildebeest, zebras, and gazelles across the African continent, and more specifically Tanzania and Kenya. The animals migrate in a circular motion year-round in search of green pastures where they can freely graze.

It is truly a marvel of nature and you can find several tours in which to witness this grand event. Their patterns can sometimes be unpredictable despite their clockwise pattern, but calling ahead can help you figure out where exactly you need to be to witness this natural wonder.

8 8. Mount Kilimanjaro

This is the tallest mountain in Africa, but also the easiest of the seven world summits to climb. You don't need any special equipment to attempt this climb, so nothing is holding you back from making the trek up this mountainside.

You might experience altitude sickness, but if you take the longer route up the mountainside you have a better chance at success due to your gradual acclimation. You might not finish it in seven hours like one Swiss climber, but the five to nine days it takes you to make the journey will be completely worth it.

7 7. Red Sea Reef

This is located in the Red Sea and can be reached from the coastlines of Sudan, Egypt, and Eritrea. It is the largest coral reef system on the continent as it stretches a total of 1,240 miles.
