Travelling to Africa and getting off the beaten track "can be genuinely unforgettable", according to one journalist.
Writing for the Irish Independent, Pol O Conghaile strongly recommended taking a trip to the continent.
He noted that after his first visit to Africa at the beginning of the decade, he has since returned many times and visited several different countries.
Mr O Conghaile advised heading to Sub-Saharan and West Africa which are "tough treasures".
"Countries such as Ethiopia or Kenya can blow your mind, test your patience and wrench your heart," he stated.
He added that this part of the continent boasts some of the best wildlife in the world, as well as some ancient culture.
For those who are interested in the lifestyle of the Masai people, a trip to Kenya could be a good idea.
Travel writer Belinda Jackson explained in an article for the Sydney Morning Herald that the Masai will welcome tourists into their villages and show them some of their culture.
