When it comes to tourism, the African continent has not been properly showcased in the media. While some may argue that it is because the African countries themselves are not doing much to promote tourism, there are those who are convinced it is because the other continents have a poor idea about Africa which is that of war torn countries and hungry looking refugees. Whatever the case, visitors to Africa have always been surprised to find beautiful countries with a lot to offer when it comes to tourist attractions. That is why the number of people visiting Africa has increased over the years. The following five countries are among the most visited in the continent.
