Africa named the most unique travel destination

A survey carried out by the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) has ranked Africa as the most unique destination to visit on holiday.

Participants in the survey said Africa's safari experiences, diverse cultures and wildlife in Africa all separated it from other destinations around the world. Costa Rica came in second on the list of most unique travel destinations, followed by Italy, Australia and Alaska. Destinations were rated on activities, experiences, culture and climates. "ASTA agents have experienced many destinations and know what resonates with their clients," said Zane Kerby, president and chief executive officer at ASTA. It was Africa’s safari experiences that put it at the top of the list with respondents saying the African safari activities were unparalleled throughout the world. “In Africa you can go from some of the most fast forward cities like Johannesburg then be out in the Veld and only see your fellow camp mates on Safari face to face with animals like you never before thought possible,” said Californian travel agent Paula Singleton. Respondents of the survey ranked Costa Rica second, with its diverse landscapes and friendly locals being listed as some of the key factors of its appeal. Italy was third, being praised for its “small town lifestyle” and food and wine. Australia was ranked fourth, with ASTA agents listing the country’s rare plants and fauna and its range of climates and experiences as reasons as to why the country was so unique. Alaska came in fifth on the list and was viewed by those surveyed as having the most varied outdoor activities such as ice climbing, dog sledding and kayaking. Image sources: 1 2
