It’s often said that your 20’s are for partying and your 30’s are for new experiences, but what about your 40’s? At this stage of your life you are likely to be more stressed compared to previous decades as you try to manage your career and look after your children, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a break every once in awhile! In your 40’s you will (hopefully!) have more money than you did in your 20’s and 30’s, and you will still be fit enough to take on new adventures. So take a look at our list of the 15 places to visit in your 40's and plan your next trip.
You need to be fit and healthy to climb to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro, so your 40’s should be the last decade to consider conquering it safely. Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain in the world. This trip will cost you a lot of money so you might not have been able to do it in your 20’s and 30’s. You will also be a lot wiser and will probably take the packing and preparation process more seriously.
Madagascar is not suitable for an inexperienced traveler, so that's why it is one of the places to visit in your 40's.

Madagascar is home to thousands of animal species such as the ring-tailed lemur, which is considered the cutest animal on the planet. There’s also varied landscapes to trek across including rainforests and deserts, as well as some lovely tropical beaches to relax on.
