I could tell you even more about Windhoek because my ardent lover dwells there. I do not want to blow your head because you might cancel your planned travel to that European country. By the way, Windhoek was founded in October 1890, during Von Francois’ led Foundation Stone of the Fort. It went on to grow into the little beautiful African Ville we have today.

A port city, a luxury-filled urban centre harnessed with unfathomable beauty. Cape Town is the African city to be in. Truth be told, nothing entirely differs Cape town from any of the beautiful cities of Europe and Asia. This city is more like the future of Mother Africa.

I bet you, once you tour Cape Town, you will not want a return home, why because it is the Europe of Africa. Most non-Africans visiting Africa even prefer to set into South Africa due to it presumed embodiment of beauty. Cape Town is also called the Mother City. This is the deserving name given to this city by the locals. Even the visitors interestingly acknowledge the nickname to be a good fit. For Cape Town to make this list as one of the best cities to visit in Africa means that it is a beauty to behold. This is a city for Africans to be proud of any time any day.

This city is definitely an African city that is worth visiting due to it friendly environment. Apart from the statements above, Agadir is famous for its beach of about 10 Km stretch studded with the finest seafront promenades and ambles. It is definitely the finest in the world.

Port Louis – Mauritius
Well, as a capital city, what would you expect? Definitely a beauty. Another African city at the verge of escaping the African continent. Port Louis is towards the inside of the Indian Ocean. Not only does this city let you access the waterlogged beauty, you could find various historical museums in Port Louis. For instance, the Blue Penny Museum envelopes the beautiful art and culture of not only Port Louis but entire Mauritius. Might be your present location lacks mountain, but you could still find this in the same Port Louis, Pieter Both Mountains. I mean you need not fly or drive out of this city to have this seasonable view from mountains. The Le Pouce Mountain, unlike Pieter Both has a thumb-like peak. You might want to try out both sceneries yourself.
Algiers – Algeria
If other cities in Africa should not mean ‘a beautiful home’ to you then Algiers would. Staying in Sub-Saharan countries such as Nigeria and its neighbors really deprive one of the greatness that Africa beholds. Yet another capital city. The capital city of Algeria and on its Mediterranean coast. Algiers stands on the slopes, precisely slopes of the Sahel Hills which parallel the Mediterranean Sea coast of Algeria. Several monumental and prestigious historical artifacts and buildings decorate this city. One of these is the presence of the 17th century Ketchaoua Mosque, having two large Minarets located by the side. Algiers has a little problem with safety. There have been cases of kidnappings. This has made it a little difficult for tourists to feel too safe. Moreover, not all part of the city is dangerous. One must be vigilant all the time.
Luanda – Angola
Luanda is a port city and the Capital of Angola. A sweet view of sheltered port where ships can take on or discharge cargo. This is a favored city benefiting from the goodies of investments flooding into Angola. Luanda was before now, not too popular but owing to its thriving standard of production and distribution, and the efficient use of its resources, Luanda, Angola has paced up and gained more grounds. Luanda boast of a luxurious standard of living accompanied with enchanting beaches with beautiful waters. French and English may appear to be the only spoken non-African languages. Well, while you are in Luanda, you are in the world’s most populous Portuguese-speaking capital. Despite the sumptuous outlook of Luanda, the poverty rate is a bit below decent. You should be careful while sauntering the city to avoid being a robbery victim. These are what others won’t tell you but here, we do just that. Happy tour!
