Best for travel in Africa
South Africa is a country with a history tormented by Apartheid; from this sometimes violent colonial past, this nation considered as the most developed on the African continent still retains some painful scars. But this fantastic land cannot be reduced to its historical shortcomings: today, the country is one of the most touristy in the world, attracting tens of thousands of students, and a large number of visitors make the trip to admire this splendid territory.
The African continent is known for its great cultural richness. But also for its majestic and breathtaking landscapes. From the deserts to the mountains and the various nature reserves, a trip to the heart of this cradle of humanity promises a thousand and one surprises. For your next escapades in Africa, here are the most beautiful destinations to visit absolutely. Travel both to reconnect with nature and practice your favorite outdoor activities.
In Morocco, architecture crumbling with details and colors, places overflowing with life, shops piled up in the alleys, tempting smells, spices tickling your taste buds, friendly people at every door. Because there’s nothing better than tapping into local resources and knowledge to get to know a country better, we asked our local expert to tell us about the must-see sites in Morocco.
While some like Marrakech or the Atlas Mountains are a must, others like Chefchaouen or the Aït Bouguemez Valley allow a true immersion in Moroccan nature and culture.Travel a little further. Huge dunes, breathtaking mountains, a sea as far as the eye can see, ochre lands, houses in the rocks, herds of goats in the villages.
Egypt is best known as the cradle of ancient Egyptian civilization, with its temples, hieroglyphics, mummies, and, the most popular, its pyramids. What is less well known is its medieval heritage, the courtesy of Coptic Christianity and Islam, the ancient churches, monasteries and mosques that make up the Egyptian landscape. Egypt stimulates the imagination of Western tourists like few other countries and is probably one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Egypt is discovered through a journey on the Nile, its mythical river, during which we discover little by little the pharaonic temples. These constitute the Egyptian cultural heritage, one of the richest in the world, and one of the best preserved. Egypt is also the Pyramids of Gyseh, the desert, the capital of Cairo, the northern seaside resorts, and those overlooking the Red Sea. The latter has some of the most beautiful and famous seabeds in the world. A trip to Egypt will therefore be ideal for those who love history coupled with breathtaking visits in the footsteps of antiquity. While cruising on the Nile or discovering the Red Sea, you will enjoy strolling through the souks, drinking tea and talking with the locals who are very welcoming. It is unfortunate that the country is under tension given the beauty and treasures it conceals.
South Africa is a country on the southernmost tip of the African continent, marked by several distinct ecosystems. Inland safari destination Kruger National Park is populated by big game. The Western Cape offers beaches, lush winelands around Stellenbosch and Paarl, craggy cliffs at the Cape of Good Hope, forest and lagoons along the Garden Route, and the city of Cape Town, beneath flat-topped Table Mountain.
Between sea, mountains and wine walks, the Rainbow Nation has many assets to offer to travelers, such as superb panoramas, good weather and magnificent wildlife to admire. The safari is a must-see attraction, to be carried out in one of the country’s many reserves.
