Pulse travel guide to countries that Donald Trump doesn't like
Here's why these misrepresented countries are worth a visit.
But here's why these misrepresented countries are worth a visit.
Namibia, a country Trump regards as a ‘shithole’, is home to vast, primal landscapes.
One day you are gazing across the mighty dunes of Sossusvlei, the next you see yourself heading deep into the desert to meet the native Himba people.
Don’t forget to take a walking safari to see the endangered white rhinos.
2. The Gambia
The Gambia, another popular holiday destination, with beautiful beaches and luxury resorts.
This country is also home to one of the most important chimpanzee sanctuaries in Africa, the Stella Marsden chimpanzee reserve in the River Gambia National Park.
Nigeria is home to rainforests, national parks and scenic coastlines.
With a number of amazing natural phenomenon, an exploding art scene and plenty of local dishes to try, it’s no wonder so many travellers are adding Nigeria to their bucket lists.
Go for a safari in Sumu Wildlife Park, Bauchi, explore the Osun sacred groove, visit the ancient Kano city, explore the only suspended lake in Africa and climb the Idanre hills in Ondo.
In Zambia, you’ll find the incredible South Luangwa National Park.
Take a walking safari to look for a huge range of wildlife including hippos, leopards, lions, elephants and wild dogs.
Haiti, the world’s first independent black republic, is also a Caribbean nation, blessed by the same white sand beaches and azure waters.
Head into the central mountains, to the waterfalls at Saut d’Eau, to witness its more serene side. Both Vodoo and Catholic pilgrims gather here every July to take its sacred water and picnic peacefully at its edges.
6. El Salvador
Empty Pacific beaches, smoking volcanoes and picturesque colonial towns are all within easy reach.
You could be climbing Izalco Volcano in El Salvador's Cerro Verde National Park one day and learning to surf in El Tunco the next.
