Why People do Not Travel to Africa Natitingou Benin West Africa Tuesday, October 3, 2006
I am in Benin, West Africa, I am trying to remember the feelings, the thoughts and why I have not traveled to Africa before. Now, that I am here, it is crazy I have not come in big before…
WHY I DID NOT COME TO AFRICA 1. I never met many people that came here. 2. The ones that came acted like it was very difficult. 3. Airplane Cost - The cost to enter Africa by plane is expensive. 4. Visa, there is nothing simple and clear about Visa explained or I have ever read. 5. Danger, CNN and BBC constantly advertise danger. 6. NGO’s constantly advertise extreme poverty. (I have not seen, worst in South America and Philippines.) 7. Military Coups 8. Cost of living in Africa.
The big one is the cost; it is about 1.5 to 2 times more than traveling in South American and about 50 percent less than traveling in Europe.
The average room is about 12 dollar, there is a possible room at 4-8, and however this price ranged need extensive research to find.
