Travelling is one of the few pure pleasures in life but if you are African, you know how hard this can get especially when you want to travel abroad.
Having an African passport is one of the few things that will make your travel dream not be realized fully. For the majority of countries, you will need to show six months’ worth of bank statements to prove to them that you are not about to go and disappear in their countries.
Next, you will need to do at least three interviews with a very non-friendly-looking officer and even after you are done with this one, you are still not sure that you will be allowed to enter their country.
 
This is whole process will probably take you two weeks so you can never just up and leave for, say, Germany.
But fret not, even as Africans, we do have some countries that will let you just pay for your ticket and show up.
