Africa is a wonderful, amazing and mind-boggling place. That’s why we think it’s the best place in the world to visit and not only should it be on your bucket list, well, we think it IS the bucket list.

And at the top of the bucket list that is Africa, you have to go on a walking safari – there’s nothing in the world like being on the ground, walking around a tree and seeing elephants on the other side. And, at the top of the African walking safari bucket list is a walking safari in Botswana at Tuli Wilderness Camp.

But first, the facts of the day. You see, every Friday here at Travel On The Good, we’re going to share three facts about Africa and then we’re going to share one amazing deal as well. Here are today’s facts and if you have a fact that you would like to share, just tweet it out using the hashtag #africafactfriday.

Did you know that there are more people with Internet access in New York City alone than there are are in the whole of the continent of Africa? And when you consider that Africa is the second largest continent, that means there’s a lot of places in Africa where it’s pretty easy to go off line.

Speaking of the grid, every single day, 25% of the earth’s sunlight falls on Africa. It’s not just the size of the continent that makes this happen, it’s also where the continent is positioned on the globe.

Finally, the Nile stretches over 6,000 kilometers from start to finish. To give this some American perspective, imagine a river starting in Boston and then going to Los Angeles and then flowing up to Seattle and over to Idaho. No wonder people call the Nile the greatest river in the world.

So what’s the deal with Tuli Wilderness Camp in Botswana? Pretty amazing.

Today, the Tuli Wilderness Camp is offering a special Botswana Walking Safari package for two people for five nights anytime between now and November 15, 2014 for only $2,000.
