I just came back to Spain from Kenya and Tanzania. Visiting this country was really awesome and has a lot of different cultures. Kenya is certainly a great country to visit because of the wildlife, the Arabian Sea to the east and Mount Kilimanjaro (Even though it’s in Tanzania), is a great visit and a great view of both Kenya and Tanzania.

I'm from kenya and it's the most amzaing exotic country that I've been to. The wildlife in the developing country is beautiful

11 Namibia Namibia Namibia, officially the Republic of Namibia, is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean.

Best country to travel in Africa, safe, comfortable, beautiful, and culturally diverse, not the most affordable, but almost all African nations are like this, I love Africa! Not African by the way

So beautiful!

What is Namibia doing so low on the list? This is quite a country where cold sea and hot arid desert meet... well balanced culturally/racially, a small but comfortable/wealthy population.

21 Algeria Algeria Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a sovereign state in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast.

How in the hell isn't algeria in the top guys this country haven't been seen since 1962 it's a good country I like it

I am ashamed to be Algerian. Thankfully I was not born there but my parents make me go there every summer. It's a disgusting country. There is nothing to do and if you want to go somewhere you better have a helicopter because there is always heavy traffic. Every day, all day. It took us once 1 hour to drive 5km from the house to the beach. The only thing you can really do is go to the beach, and it's filthy. The water is green and the "sand" is full of bugs and insects. I put sand between speech marks because there are more empty plastic bottle than sand. You go to Algeria to stay at home and watch T.V.. That's what everybody does and likes. Plus, the food is not that good. Milk is disgusting. It does not taste like milk, I doubt it's real milk.

I have a good feeling about Algeria it is a beautiful place to visit

The desert is the best
