Last year, we chatted with Traveler editors about how and why you should be planning a trip to Africa. But even since then, there's been new airport and hotel openings, making country-hopping essential (and easy). And this isn't just a safari-fest. You can go to Dakar to surf. Or Addis Ababa for a historical pilgrimage and Italian coffee shops frozen in time. You may have to work a little harder for moments of travel joy, but when you find them they're something altogether authentic.
