There’s as much his­tory, great food and In­sta­gram-wor­thy ar­chi­tec­ture right here as any­where else: 1. For the ad­ven­tur­ous there’s Erta Ale, an any­thing-but-dor­mant vol­cano in Ethiopia. 2. About 30 kilo­me­tres north­east of Dakar, Lake Retba is sure to rack up the likes with its salty pink wa­ters (it’s got the same buoy­ancy as the Dead Sea, too). 3. There’s more to Morocco than the souks of Marrakech. Take a de­tour via Che­fchaouen and ex­pe­ri­ence the blue-washed walls of this an­cient moun­tain city. 4. In Maputo book your­self a two-hour guided tour of Por­tuguese eclec­tic mod­ernist ar­chi­tect Pancho Guedes’s (he was to Mozam­bique what Bawa was to Sri Lanka) many idio­syn­cratic struc­tures around the coun­try’s cap­i­tal.
