The issue of traveling as an African through the African continent is squeezing for some. Seychelles is the only African country that requires no visa for every single African national; and a number of African countries have evacuated visa passage necessities and expenses for various African nationals.
Among Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), nationals of its 15-part nations including Benin, Cape Verde, Ivory Coast, The Gambia, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Togo, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Guinea Bissau and Nigeria can go without visa across ECOWAS states.
In Southern Africa, there is a typical vacationer visa between Zambia and Zimbabwe called the KAZA Kavango Zambezi. Guests who apply for this visa can visit the two nations including treks to Botswana.
