Often in the Francophone archipelago, you have plenty of opportunities to practice your French language.

#2. South Africa

Visit the homeland of actress Charlize Theron and Daily Show host Trevor Noah. This country is a cultural melting pot because of the diversity of its indigenous peoples and the centuries of colonialism. 

People often speak many languages, including Afrikaans, Xhosa and English. There is a lot to do here, including hiking and surfing in Cape Town. Or, if you like the hustle and bustle of city life, dine for a few days in Johannesburg.

#3. Swaziland

Swaziland is a small country between Mozambique and South Africa. Although many may focus on the health and economic problems of the country, do not allow yourself to be deterred. 

Swaziland has some beautiful forests. It is home to more than 500 species of birds and more than 100 exotic, endangered mammals. 

If you want to capture rough photos of protected animals, this is the place to visit.

#4. Egypt

Culturally, North African countries may be completely different from South African countries. This distinction is clear between Egypt on this list and the countries at the top of this list. 

The languages, customs and peoples of Egypt are greatly affected by its Middle Eastern and Arab neighbours. Still, we know why you want to go to Egypt. 

The land of the pyramids is rich in artefacts from one of the best early civilizations in history. Whether you are inspired by a movie, book or history class, you have to visit yourself to understand the beauty of Egypt.

#5. Morocco

Morocco is another North African country with a mix of French, Arab and Berber cultures. You will want to go to Marrakech for spice markets and big-city bustle. For a jungle trek, ride a camel in the desert and camp under the stars for a night. 

Of course, if you have time, visit the famous Casablanca, where you can enjoy the beaches and life by the sea.
