Africa, the motherland, boasts the most stunning vistas, charming cities and it is bounteously rich in culture.

Depending on which country you visit, you can enjoy white sands, vibrant flora and rare wildlife. With all of this, it’s a wonder that it doesn’t top lists of the most popular destinations to visit. Cindy Maléombho-Codo of Akanlux, a digital platform that specializes in luxury African Hotels, Spas and Hideaways, (part of Indoka Group), is a proud African. She shares five cities and hotels that she has fallen in love with and recommends you consider them for your next holiday destinations.
