Chances are that if you have seen the Movie Black Panther, you’re day dreaming of heading to Wakanda. Reality is Wakanda is only a figment of Marvel Studio’s imagination and certainly does not exist. You are probably fighting the notion that all that awesomeness is just a fiction and want Wakanda to be real.
The point is, even if Wakanda is real, the Wakandans guard their borders jealously with W’kabi standing at the forefront, and you are obviously not getting in, unless of course you are Erik Killmonger and you have Claw in a body bag.
Not to worry though, if Wakanda ain’t letting you in, here are a few other African cities that look just like Wakanda and the government of the countries in which these cities are located would definitely give you a tourist pass to see how awesome they are. Let’s count down
Talk about an advanced city, sky scrapers, uninterrupted power or you just want that technology driven hub that Wakanda boasts of and you definitely want to be in Johannesburg. Joburg or Jozi as it’s popularly called is a city in South Africa in Southern Africa and is definitely a must visit. If you love all things tech and want a city with that hustle vibe, If you want that 21st century city feeling in the African continent, Jozi is the way to go.
Sharm El Sheik, Egypt
Remember where the kingship ritual takes place in Wakanda? That same spot where T’Challa fought with M’Baku and later Erik Killmonger? Well if you want to feel like you were right there and relive those scenes, then head to the Sinai Peninsula in modern day Sharm El Sheik in Egypt. There, you will be magically transferred to that scene.
In the heart of Eastern Africa is Nairobi. The wildlife capital of the world. Nairobi has expanse land and the final battle field where the war takes place between the hero and the villain with all the unleashing of animals can easily be one of the wild life safari parks on Nairobi. Also we see some crafts on the streets in Wakanda which can be easily be traced to the Massai people in Kenya and can really look like a Massai Market Scene.
Want a magical waterfall experience and you definitely want to see the smoke that thunders. Just like the falls where T’challa was thrown into after the ritual fight with Killmonger after being presumed dead. Then head to Livngstone, Zambia and you will not only be living your Wakanda dream, you will be taking in a world wonder. Want to do something daring and amazing like the Wakandans, then have a devil’s pool experience. Take a picture of you sitting or standing at the edge of the world’s highest waterfall, an act that takes the bravery of people of Wakandan descent.
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Let’s talk about an African country that was able to ward off the claws of colonialism. A country being the only one in Africa that fought relentlessly against the imperialist and thus was never colonized. A country just like Wakanda, unsoiled unadulterated and with culture that is untampered with. Let’s talk about a country where lip plates are fashionable wink. You will definitely want to head out to this citadel of ancient culture.

Livingstone Zambia cut my attention. The magical waterfall experience, smoke that thunders sounds cool, i will love to take just a single shot on that cliff and posing in wakanda way. I always love waterfalls.
Nice piece and thanks for showing us that Africa is a great and exciting continent to explore.
Hopefully we can do the smoke that thunders together. Thanks for spatingbtime to read Yemi.
