Travel to North Africa is a quite different experience to going on safari elsewhere in Africa. The emphasis here is much more on the cultural and historical highlights of each country, in addition to experiencing everyday life through intriguing sights, sounds and tastes. In many instances, fascinating ancient history sits alongside vibrant modern life, and very often the two are intertwined.
The influence of Islamic tradition can be seen everywhere, while beyond the cities, the landscapes that you’ll see when you travel to North Africa may surprise you. Deserts predominate, of course, but you’ll also see rugged mountains, flower-strewn valleys and beautiful beaches. This is a region that has undergone immense change over the last few decades, but at the same, these countries have remained true to their rich histories.
