This relatively small nation has heavy Arab and African influences
Ethiopia

The warm heart of Africa, around Lake Nyassa
Mauritius
Tropical Indian Ocean island
Rwanda
Gorillas in the mist
Seychelles
A group of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, northeast of Madagascar
Somalia
One of the least visited nations on earth, it is by no coincidence that the nation is also wrought with political instability, civil war, and rampant kidnapping/abductions
Tanzania
Mt Kilimanjaro and major game parks
Uganda
Wildlife abounds and this is the best place for treks into the Congolese jungle to visit the nearly extinct mountain gorillas
