Is AFRICA cooked?

>CTRL+ F: africa
>zero results

just a few years ago it seemed like africa was becoming cool but that seems to have dissipated. what is the reason for this? the resurgence of jihadism? the chronic eternal poverty? the threat of war doesn't seem to deter you guys from wanting to visit taiwan or SEA. so what happened to africa? i'm planning a world tour and wondering if I should just skip africa altogether.

    Africa is where you go if you aren't a consumer. Sadly, most millenials and zoomers are mindless consumers so they'll go to Europe, USA, SE Asia, etc.

    I went to zanzibar for a month earlier this year, frickin shit hole, just bad infrastructure, terrible food, stupid people, beach was nice but that's it. Got into a weird dispute with the landlord after he drugged me and had to flee the island with no belongings, had to buy flip flops on the side of the road on the way to the airport.

    You're trying to classify an entire continent with various locales, environments and economical situations with broad strokes.

    Africa is cool but it really is the security threats and chronic poverty that deters people. It is huge and the lack of infrastructure + the constant "checkpoints" of unemployed bandits taking bribes makes traveling there a nightmare. I will never forget my time in Africa but it was a pain.

      Security threats and mandatory bribes can vary wildly by country though and in some places can be easily avoided if you do your research and use your brain. Never had such issues in Tanzania for example. Many of the least visited countries can be like this too, especially if you leave the business district of the capital. Personally I've noticed local guides are a great scam deterrent. Security situation is shit in them right now, but when things cool, I would gladly recommend Niger and Mali, for example.

    JBW is insane there. Spent about a year in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. By the time I got to Rwanda, I'd fricked so many girls off tinder I'd lost interest and spent a month there celibate (fricked a Rwandan gas station attendant in Uganda on the border).
    Absolute insane JBW. In Kenya I learned what it must be like to be a hot girl (9/10) in the west and get hit on all the time. I was aggressively hit on all the times - waitresses (begging to be fricked), airbnb hosts, friends of tinder dates... just seemed I could frick every single girl in the country if I wanted to. It was an insae upside dimension I'll never forget. I took full advantage too

          I can believe this. I know it's not Africa but I was in my own in the Bahamas (not a touristy area) for a few days and I was completely shocked at how open the black girls were about wanting to frick me. these girls were definitely out of my league.I went to a bar and the girl there immediately started making conversation with me and told me to take my top off and asked if I had a girlfriend within 5 minutes.

    Any anons been to Botswana?
    Fricked a bunch of African intl students and the two from Botswana were cool as frick, insanely good looking, never stressing and easily wife material. All the rest were completely insane in one way or another, one seriously threatened to falsely report me for rape if I break up with her which was nuts.
    From what I seen online it seems more developed and chill than the rest.

Only girl I had who could get me off from just a blowjob. Black men would noticeably seethe when they saw us walking together. Kinds regret not marrying her but I was 23 and she was like 19 at the time so no way in hell could it work. My plan is to just go back there and find her twin. I'm 90% sure I'll probably marry a black African girl. May even live there.

    Kek. This reminds me of when I was staying in a small resort in Diani Beach. There was a really old security guard and a moron who worked with him. When I'd go to the store and cone back late I'd always buy them some cookies or give them a dollar. I always speak to and treat guards well around the world. They would also let me in with different women at different times of the night. It was completely allowed but I just kind of liked them.
    Eventually, the resort staff got visibly envious and pissy that I was giving them money and not them (I had no interaction with other staff). So one morning they doubled the price of the room which basically forced me to leave. This was during covid when they had almost zero guests.
    Maybe they wanted a little money under the table idk

    Nyali and Diani beach bros, what’s the day to day like out there? Can I chill, drink on the beach, eat decent food at restaurants on the coast , coom, maybe go to night clubs and not fear for my safety from roving gangs of whoever and getting killed if I go to clubs? Are there rampant scams and hawkers

    Can I just get girls off dating apps and around town or whatever?

      >Can I chill, drink on the beach, eat decent food at restaurants on the coast
      Yes. But there is no mid-range food. You either eat sloppy veg and fatty grissly meat with 3 kilos of ugali for $1.50 or you spend $8 - $12 and eat at the German restaurant or similar
      >coom, maybe go to night clubs and not fear for my safety from roving gangs of whoever and getting killed
      No problem in Diani just never walk anywhere at night, even if your hotel is very close. Get a motorbike taxi

      On the beach, yeah but if you're in Africa you already know how to deal with these types by now

    I walked short distances at night in well lit areas and it was fine, you need to be on guard, don't be drunk etc.
    lack of mid range food and accommodation is a problem but women compensate that

      Everyone told me not to so I didn't cause I didn't need to. Like motorbike taxis after a couple of beers anyway.
      Be careful of the nothing happened to me so it's safe mindset. I worked in Phuket for 6 months and thought it was super safe. Literally the last weekend my gf was robbed on the back of my motorbike (bag snatch) 2 DAYS in a row, one colleague/friend was raped, and her friend was stopped with her Thai bf walking on the beach at night by a Thai gang and they beat him with metal bars as she watched. He has permanent brain damage.
      I always felt safe in Phnom Penh too, would take loads of valium and ride around the city at 2 am until someone threw a brick at me while I was riding my motorbike

    unironically people being racist and limiting them from going, and in the case they actually go, limiting them from actually ever interacting them with africans. i've travelled a lot in west africa and had only good experiences with people if you aren't moronic and can filter out the people aggressively trying to scam you. also the average "backpacker" is a glorified hotel resort tourist, so the lack of western standard infrastructure filters out the vast majority of them. better this way, makes the place actually travellable with it not being filled with insufferable backpackers

    Sub-saharan Africa has few rewards for travellers. The tourist infrastructure is absolutely horrible, designed to rip off rich middle-aged Americans on their first safari, not cater to naive backpackers. There are few historical sights. Large cities are congested crime-ridden shitholes. Public transport is non-existent or extremely unsafe. Nightlife is poor. Nature is nice, but there are no marked trails and wildlife and criminals pose a serious threat. The food is bland and will give you the trots. The people are stupid, unfriendly and live in abject poverty, and because of that see you as a walking money bag.

    Generally speaking of course. The continent is 3x the size of Europe, and it's not like literally every inch of it is shit. But in the end, you go to places like Madagascar just to say you've been to Madagascar. Everything Africa has to offer, can be found cheaper, safer and in better quality elsewhere.

      If nothing else, the people in Africa are 900% cooler and kinder than you find among other tropical shitholes. I don't disagree with any of your points in particular, and yet I enjoy visiting Africa very much and I return there often. I think what you are lacking is an appreciation of what Africa is by itself. Instead you ask only what it can offer you, and how it compares to other places.
