10. The Central African Country - Far Cry 2
Theres no denying that this land-locked central African nation is mightily picturesque. It boasts huge sweeping savannas, lush green jungles, rolling deserts and plenty of wildlife to photograph. Despite its beauty however, we wouldnt recommend it for a safari adventure holiday. Theres a strong chance youll contract malaria as soon as you rock up, and because medication is scarce - only available from priests it seems - be prepared to collapse at the most inconvenient of times. Dont bother using public transport either the buses arent what youd call timely. Your only option if you want to explore is to hire yourself a car, but be sure to request a jeep with a roof-mounted machine gun at the Hertz Rental desk because any journey you make will likely be interrupted by trigger-happy militiamen firing rusty AK47s at you for no reason. Or theyll play a game of chicken with you in their machine gun-mounted jeep. But if this does take your fancy, be sure to have a simple understanding of car engines because the RAC arent going to be helping you. And if you know basic field first aid and can remove bullets lodged in your body with a knife, then thats a bonus too. Oh, and the biggest reason to not visit this place, THERES A BLOODY, ENDLESS CIVIL WAR HAPPENING!
