Africa is not only huge in size, there are more than 50 countries on the continent – so your first task when you are planning a trip to Africa is to narrow your destinations to a manageable few! Once you have done that, and even knowing that your money will likely go further here than in some more expensive destinations around the world, you should still try to limit your spending (if for no other reason than you will be able to afford a return trip to see all the stuff you missed on the first trip!). One good way to do that is to hunt for cheap hotels in Africa for your trip.

Now, it may be that what counts for a cheap hotel in Africa is very different than a cheap hotel in some expensive European city. But either way, not spending more than you need to is a good idea when you are traveling, and we are here to help you out. Just scroll down to find links for the most popular tourist destinations in Africa. Clicking on those links will get you more details about hotels in that city, including some hotel recommendations. And if your destination is not listed, never fear – you can find cheap hotels all over Africa using our search box at the top of this page.
