These Are 10 Of The Unusual Places In Africa

Yes you may think you are a travelling African and therefore you have an idea of almost all places in Africa or even of the World at that. You will be amazed that there are sceneries that you will blink twice and not believe they exist until you set your naked eyes on them

There are a lot of beautiful locations around the world, a lot unknown to us. Mentioned below are some of these stunningly amazing locations across Africa.


1. Giraffe Manor

Location: Kenya

Giraffe Manor is a little lodging in Nairobi, Kenya which fills in as a home to a number of endangered Rothschild giraffes, and works a rearing system to reintroduce reproducing sets again into the wild to secure the fate of the subspecies. Giraffe Manor offers you an unparalleled ordeal of the giraffes, with them competing for your consideration at the breakfast table, the front entryway and even your window.


2. The Abandoned Outdoor Movie Theatre

Location: Egypt

Some place on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, settled at the foot of a forsaken mountain. Several seats for an outside motion picture theater. It is trusted that the auditorium was worked by a man from France who got a kick out of the chance to smoke cannabis. One day he was hanging out in the Sinai abandon with his companions and chose that the one thing the place was missing was a motion picture theater. Long story short, huge amounts of old seats and a generator were pulled in from Cairo, including a mammoth screen that resembled the sail of a ship. Everything was set for premiere night, in any case, local people didn’t care for the thought for reasons unknown and attacked the generator. Not a solitary motion picture was ever screened. So now it sits amidst an abandon, an overlooked motion picture theater that was never utilized.


3. Lake Natron

Location: Tanzania

Found near the Kenyan fringe, Lake Natron is nourished by a few springs that are rich in minerals, making the lake profoundly antacid, achieving a pH of 9 to 10.5. The temperature of the shallow lake’s water can achieve 140 degrees Fahrenheit and is sufficiently salty to harm generally creatures. Every one of these qualities, make Lake Natron the deadliest in the nation. Notwithstanding the majority of this, the lake stays one of the primary rearing justification for lesser flamingos, a species who’s status of ‘close debilitated’ is an immediate result of its reliance on Lake Natron for reproducing purposes. Amid periods when there isn’t much rain, the lake’s water level reductions, uncovering salt islands, on which winged creatures manufacture homes. The blue green growth that develop in the water, thus, feast upon the feathered creature’s homes. Creatures that kick the bucket in the lake are transformed into statues, through calcification.


4. Sahara El Beyda

Location: Egypt

Sahara el Beyda or the white desert as it is known used to be nothing more than a sea-bed. Millions of years ago, a place, that now has record high temperatures used to be the bottom of the sea. Slowly the water level started to drop and all manner of life was gone. What was left are giant pieces of chalk rock, that still proudly stand till today. Each one has a unique shape, that could be admired for hours.


5. Richat Structure

Location: Mauritania

The Richat Structure, also known as the Eye of the Sahara and Guelb er Richat, is a prominent circular feature which has attracted attention since the earliest space missions because it forms a conspicuous bull’s-eye in the otherwise rather featureless expanse of the desert.



6. Olduvai Gorge

Location: Tanzania

Located near Olduvai Gorge lies the spectacular, yet mysterious, ash dunes of Shifting Sands. Formed from volcanic ash, these crescent-shaped dunes are a rare phenomenon and are technically referred to as barkan. These dunes are formed when there’s ample dust on the ground and a unidirectional wind to create the moving effect. The volcanic ash (or dust) collects around a rock and continually gathers until it forms what appears to be a small sand dune. This process is continuous, and as it progresses the unidirectional wind causes the dune to move. In the case of these Shifting Sands, they tend to move around 10 meters a year


7. Deadvlei

Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. Also written DeadVlei or Dead Vlei, its name means “dead marsh” The pan also is referred to as “Dooie Vlei” which is the (presumably original) fully Afrikaans name.The clay pan was formed when the Tsauchab River flooded and the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. However, the climate changed and the sand dunes encroached on the pan, blocking the river from reaching the area. The trees are estimated to be approximately 900 years old, however, they have not decomposed due to the dry climate.


8. The Painted Village of Burkina Faso

Location: Burkina-Faso

In the village of Tiebele, Burkina-Faso, every house is a work of art. This marvellous settling is known for its traditional Gourounsi architecture and carefully hand decorated houses. These houses have been hand painted by the locals, with extreme care and even more amazing, they are unique, none of them have repeating designs or patterns.


9. Tsingy de Bemaraha

Location: Madagascar

The Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park is a national park located in Melaky Region, northwest Madagascar. The national park centres on two geological formations: the Great Tsingy and the Little Tsingy. The Tsingys are karstic plateaus in which groundwater has undercut the elevated uplands, and has gouged caverns and fissures into the limestone. Because of local conditions, the erosion is patterned vertically as well as horizontally. In several regions of western Madagascar, centring on this National Park and adjacent Nature Reserve, the superposition of vertical and horizontal erosion patterns have created dramatic “forests” of limestone needles


10. Illusion of Underwater Waterfall

Location: Mauritius

About 1,200 miles off the southeast coast of Africa lies an island known as Mauritius that gives off the illusion of an underwater waterfall at the southwestern tip of the island. The visually deceiving impression, created in the water due to the runoff of sand and silt deposits, is especially effective and stunning in aerial shots.
