Africa: The New Holiday Hotspot?

11/4/2006 1:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bono made it good. Brangelina made it sexy. Madonna made it controversial. But will other celebs want to make it their holiday destination?
Now that holiday getaways beckon, and celebs are lining up their plans, it would't surprise if they followed each other to the world's hot continent in search of a relaxing -- yet emotionally nutritious -- vacation. While some of the pretty people toddle off to St. Bart's and other sybaritic enclaves, others might opt to holiday in a land where they can stay just yards from abject poverty and privation.

Click to Launch!One marketing executive at a prestigious luxury tour firm in Manhattan tells TMZ that Africa is a wonderful destination anytime of year, but it might be difficult for some celebs to hack. "For someone like Puff Daddy, it could be kind of tough," says the exec. "Because if he expects Patrón, or whatever brand of tequila to be at his elbow the whole time, it can be difficult to procure certain things." And really -- who has time to slog egg-nog and save the world all in the same trip?

Africa has always been a tourist destination for many europeans & Asians for decades now. You people are a bit slow. You can do a safari one day, go to some of the cleanest beaches in the world the next day, Visit Cape town ( The most beautiful city in the world) etc etc. South Africa happens to the thee leading tourist destination at the moment. There's more to Africa than what you see on TV!!!

Africa is a great place for a vacation and before you leave you can buy a child as a souvenir instead of a t-shirt, just like Madonna.

What's this fascination over bubble face Angelina Jolie? High bubble forehead with bubble eyes....she thinks she's the example for everyone. She is still a blood-chain wearer and a wanna be humanitarian - PR purposes -- why not help her own in America, not Africa.
