While the wildlife is sure to be a highlight of any African itinerary, there are also some really interesting historical sites that can be a nice break from back-to-back game drives and offer insight into Africa's history and varied cultures. From the massive stone walls of the Great Zimbabwe ruins, to the rock are at Twyfelfontein and Bushman's Kloof, to the unique architecture of the Swahili Coast, there are unique historical sites throughout East and Southern Africa you can build into a safari. If you want historical sites to be a focal point of your trip, we recommend the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, Axum and Tigray in Ethiopia.
