    Nobody has mentioned Namibia, hmm. Never been, but I heard it still has some of its old German influence. Mild dry winter climate, and it has some great beaches. Very low population density, among the lowest on Earth, so you will have plenty of space away from the natives.
    Otherwise, I'd recommend a highland destination, 5000 feet elevation or higher.

      correct
      >Mild dry winter climate
      its a desert; its cold as frick inland and windy at the coast
      >has some great beaches
      see above, also seaside fog
      >Very low population density, among the lowest on Earth, so you will have plenty of space away from the natives.
      Incorrect - population congregates around the few cities and towns

          doesnt dispel the fact that the natives also congregate to said cities or towns

        Nobody in their right mind goes to Africa to see the cities. People go to see giraffes and shit in national parks where nobody lives.
        Nambia does have a very low population density though, the cities are not big and they're not densely populated by 3rd world standards. Same with Botswana. These countries are very underrated.

          No - but you'll have no choice if you want to get there. Resupply in any manner or even just passing through.
          Its a logistical fact. Do you honestly think the plane just lands in the middle of the African bush?

            FWIW, yes. A lot of Americans fly straight to the airport that's at the entrance to Kruger National Park only going through Joberg to change planes.

              which is just outside of the city of Mbombela and they still have to drive an hour minimum to get to Kruger through various other towns and townships.

    Objectively it's the Seychelles, followed by Cape Verde. If you're talking only about mainland Africa, then Rwanda.

      Do I get bragging rights for going to subsaharan Africa, or is this cheating?

    Probably Ghana. Gambia also has some tourist infrastructure now.

      Why is Ghana always the 1st country that pops up as "baby's first Africa", best possible introduction to the continent, etc etc but nobody talks about how much of a pain in the ass the visa is? Even by west african standards ffs. Pretty clear the Ghanaian govt has zero interest in whether tourists come or not.
      Senegal gets my vote as it's just as civilized and is visa-free for most whites.

        usually it's Kenya. Ghana is mentioned by manchildren obsessing over big milkers.

    Having visited somewhere between one and two dozen countries below the Sahara, my vote goes to Namibia, the amount of people trying to hassle you is far lower than elsewhere on the continent - partially on account of there being very few people. Gambia if you just want to sit in a resort and sip wienertails on a beach. There's a few other areas that come to mind, such as Cap Skiring in Senegal, Cape Three Points in Ghana, or Grand Bassam in Ivory Coast but you may experience a bit more hassle.

    Coolest of all was Ethiopia though, which is also quite accessible.

      Do you get a lot of hassle in Ethiopia?

        Wasn't too bad all in all. Occasionally some hassle around bus station etc, but even that was relatively low level. People are friendly but will generally leave you to your own devices. Kids can be annoying though, and the Omo valley can be a bit funny so to speak.

            I did. It's weird. Extreme levels of poverty, city can look very nice while being very smelly. There's some qat addicts around, street kids going hungry asking for food, but on the other hand I had plenty of genuinely nice interactions with the locals. Very much a mixed bag and definitely not for everyone, but I did enjoy it in the end.

            Also, there's a pension named the Harar Penision right before you enter the old town, and the hyena thing is a bit touristy but cool.
