Don’t let the word TRAVEL intimidate you. The world is full of affordable destinations, and it doesn’t require much effort to find them. No matter what continent, there are always places where your Naira can be stretched a lot further— even countries we think of as expensive are quite budget-friendly if you know certain tips and tricks. We’ve combed the African continent for more amazing (and amazingly affordable!) bucket list spots than ever before. All you have to do is pack your bags and start ticking these destinations off your travel bucket list.

1. Johannesburg, South Africa

Johannesburg is a staple go-to for budget travellers. Hop on the red city sightseeing bus and see the city at your own pace for free or swoop up and down on a roller coaster at Gold Reef City — it is all so affordable. Don’t forget to visit the Constitution hills to see Nelson Mandela letters and diaries for a relatively cheap price. No matter what you choose to do in Johannesburg, you’re pretty much guaranteed an amazing holiday.

2. Kigali, Rwanda

Even in a region of budget-friendly destinations, Kigali stands out. It is hard not to be enchanted by the undulating beauty of the city that is famous for the beautiful mountainous landscapes and national parks. There is plenty to do here to occupy your time, from exploring museums and art collections to eating tasty cuisines at the restaurants and mingling with the locals at cosy bars. For an adrenaline-pumping adventure, go on a Gorilla Safari and have a captivating encounter with wildlife. Whatever you do in Kigali, you’ll find it hard not to leave utterly captivated.

3. Abuja, Nigeria

If you are dreaming of going on a vacation, but can’t afford to fly overseas, Abuja may be a great option. Often bypassed in favour of Lagos, the Nigerian capital is fast becoming a tourist hotspot featuring exciting nightlife, affordable hotels, and national parks. And because it is located in the northern region of Nigeria, food is incredibly cheap here. Take your taste buds on an adventure with the delicious Suya and Kilishi served hot from the local stores in the streets of Abuja. It is certainly a haven for meat lovers. Top this all off with a trip to the Guara waterfall which is less than one hour drive from Abuja.

4. Nairobi, Kenya

One of the great things about travelling to Kenya is that it is possible to have a unique safari experience here without breaking the bank. Visit the Maasai Mara plains and you won’t be disappointed with the incredible variety of animals you’ll see. For a more mind blowing experience, take a hot-air balloon safari and enjoy an aerial view of the majestic animal experience. And if it is beaches you are after, walk to one of Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastal beaches where you can enjoy white water rafting or scuba diving.
