It is an exotic country with a lot of natural beauty and probably we haven’t seen anything like this before. The most famous tourist attraction in the country is the Darvaza fire crater that’s more commonly known as ‘the door to hell’ and if there was a door to hell it would certainly look like that.
The Central African Republic
The Central African Republic is one of the very few places where we can see and interact with Pygmy people. There is the possibility of staying in an authentic Pygmy village. Another reason is the rich wildlife, such as elephants and mountain gorillas.
The journey is very difficult but once we get there we won’t regret it for a single second. It is a country of mountain lions which will blow us away with its unmatched scenery, serenity and wildlife. Everybody here speaks English so there won’t be any communication problem.

If we are an adventurist junkie or love traveling in dodgy countries Somalia should be at the top of our list. There are only a few hotels in this country and it doesn’t have nightlife. However, after 20 years of lawlessness without a government, the country seems to be stabilizing but it’s still considered not recommendable to visit.
