Accommodation in Africa, like the rest of the world, has something for everyone. I will try and feature a few different styles of accommodation available, rather than specific hotels as such, as there are way too many to try and recommend just a few. Beach Hotels. Africa boasts many splendid beaches, and if that is what you are after from a holiday, look no further. You can choose a nice hotel, right on the beach, in every price range. The picture shows the Omar Khayam Hotel in Hammamet in Tunisia, where we stayed in 1989. The hotel was clean, reasonably priced and offered a host of activities, such as waterskiing, parasailing, beach aerobics amongst others. There was a lovely pool, but we did find that the sun loungers were taken well before we got up. We spent most of our time on the beach anyway, where you could hire sunbeds very cheaply.
