The Telegraph reported that, for 3,800 years, the pyramids of Giza kept the title of the tallest structures in the world.
It added that sub-Saharan Africa is expected to receive 18.6 million tourists from all around the world this year, after the increase in numbers of visitors to South Africa, Nigeria, Mozambique, Cameron and Tanzania.
Still, the newspaper considered this a small number for a continent as large as Africa, especially considering that a city such as Venice in Italy alone is visited by around 25 million tourists every year.
