Visit Africa


In recent times, African cities have gained popularity and increased visibility in the tourism landscape. Whether it is the exciting safari adventures in Kenya, the beautiful blue waters of Tanzania, the enchanting vineyards of South Africa or the invigorating night life of Ghana, tourists all over the world are looking forward to crossing African adventures off their travel list. Unfortunately there are still misconceptions and myths about the continent that may cause budding tourists to change their minds. Today, we are busting the top three myths concerning African travel. 



Countries in Africa

Myth Buster #1: Africa is One Country


Africa, a continent rich in diverse cultures, landscapes, and histories, is often unjustly pigeonholed as one homogeneous entity. But let’s clear the air once and for all: Africa is not a single country. In particular, It is a vast and multi-faceted continent comprising 54 countries, each with its own unique identity and charm.

Thus, Ghana, our beloved West African nation, is a shining example of Africa’s cultural tapestry. From the bustling markets of Accra to the serene shores of Cape Coast, Ghana offers an authentic experience that blends tradition and modernity. You can immerse yourself in the rhythmic beats of traditional drumming, witness colourful festivals, and explore ancient forts that bear witness to the region’s history

 In brief, there are so many African countries to explore. All of them have sights, sounds and vistas unique to their geography and so much more to offer than one would expect.

Myth Buster #2: Africa is Dangerous


Africa has a wrong and unfair reputation in the international media for being a place high in violent crime with political instability and poverty being two that are often highlighted. While it’s true that every country has its own unique challenges, Africa is generally as safe as any other continent. Like any other travel destination, practicing basic safety precautions and being mindful of your surroundings is essential.

However, Ghana, known for its warm hospitality and friendly locals, is considered one of the safest countries in Africa for travelers. With a stable political climate and a reputation for peace, you can confidently explore its vibrant cities, tranquil beaches, and lush national parks without feeling unsafe. To curb this risk, reputable travel companies like ProTour Africa ensure all our clients are safe by centering the safety of all tourists in our services.
