    Marrakesh Things to Do

    This is easily Marrakesh's main sight and a place where you can easily spend a couple of hours just walking around or watching the scene. Here, you will find all kinds of arts and all kinds of food in an entertaining setting. The square is what comes the closest to a place out of 1001 nights and is known for its snake charmers, henna tattooists and...

  • Egyptian Museum

    Cairo Things to Do

    Maybe the richest museum that I've seen, left me with a sensation of... disappointment. The collection is so big, so rich, that the display is too dense and inexpressive. Only the section of Tutankhamun glows in the whole, with the drawback that it is always crowded.

    5 out of 5 stars

    Cape Town Things to Do

    You can of course walk up Table Mountain, but getting to the top of Cape Town’s mountain doesn’t have to involve any more exertion than stepping aboard the 85-year-old Table Mountain Cableway which provides one with a gentle, quick and vista-full trip up to the top of the mountain.

    All the cubs you pet here grow up and are sold to the canned hunt. You think you're going here to support the lives of these beautiful animals, little do you know you are supporting the canned hunt. Please educate yourself before you support the murder of tamed lions. You can watch the CNN video here -...

    Alexandria Things to Do

    We had taken a picnic lunch - and lots of water because it was 30 degrees in October - and found a quiet spot to sit down and eat. After we finished eating we walked towards the beach. There is a path that leads to the lighthouse, but unfortunately that path was closed so I didn't get to go to the lighthouse. There is even a bowling alley on the...

  • Hassan II Mosque

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Casablanca Things to Do

    The new mosque of Hassan II it's a marvel of architecture, looking big and being bigger than it looks, favoured by its location entering the sea. I didn't visit the interior, which, for non Muslims, is only accessible in organized visits that we couldn't access. But it's always possible to walk in the esplanade, seeing the doors and arches in...

    This place is also well and truly on any visitors list when coming to Luxor. An enormous place full of various different sized tombs. Your entrance ticket grants you access to 3 and if you purchase the extra Tutankhamen ticket then you have 4. There is nothing to stop you buying multiple tickets so you can see them all but i found once i had seen...

    The Big Five animals refer to the most difficult animals to hunt in Africa, a term that was invented years ago when hunting in Africa by Europeans was in vogue. Today, spotting the Big Five is the quest of anyone on a safari. The five animals are the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, and elephant. I was fortunate enough on my safari to see all five,...

    Tangier Things to Do

    Tangiers medina is quite small in comparison with other Moroccan cities. The walled city runs up the side of the hill to the kasbah. You can enter the medina from the Grand Socco through the gate and into Rue as-Siaghin. This used to be the old Jewish quarter where a gold market used to operate.

    Sousse has a very long history. It was a Phoenician outpost (Hadrumetum), a free Roman city (Byzacium), a vandal town (Hunericopolis) and finally the Byzantine city of Justiniana or Justinianopolis. Nothing of these settlements remains, for in the early years of the Hegira, Justinianopolis was entirely destroyed after a two-month siege by...

    Abu Simbel Things to Do

    Most tourists/visitors spend only a couple of hours in Abu Simbel, either flying or travelling by a bus convoy from Aswan - they arrive in swarms, visit the temples and shoot through (sorry, I'm Australian ..... translated as "leave"). In my opinion, they are missing out on a very special experience. I recently spent 3 nights at the Eskaleh and it...

    I have always wanted to hug and play with lions, but I didn't want to go to a place where these animals are mistreated for photo ops. Luckily I came across a YouTube video about a volunteer program called Living with Big Cats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHjMMeGGIPM The video pretty much explains what this volunteer program is all about.

    The Sossuvlei/Deadvlei area is one of the few accessible parts of the Namib Naukluft National Park. It is a great place to experience the Namib desert and to hike on dunes.

    Sharm El Sheikh Things to Do

    There's another way to "go to Rome and not seeing the pope" - it is going to Sharm el Sheikh without snorkelling. The area is composed by two different type of snorkelling places - the good, and the excellent ones. We visited both.

    Cape Town Things to Do

    It's not difficult to find the entrance to Cape Point. There is, basically, one road that pretty much leads you to it. There is an entrance fee. You can drive to the Cape of Good Hope. We visited the lighthouse. The views from there are just spectacular. A bit windy and I think we went on a good day. It probably is even more windy on most days. You...

    One of the most exciting sculptures to be established in the Jo'burg CBD in the last couple of years is a replica of the gold rhino of Mapungubwe, which is located on Fox Street, just opposite the Hollard Street pedestrian mall. As it is mounted on a plinth at about head height, so it can be surprisingly easy to overlook. The Mapungubwe rhino is...

  • Old Medina

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Casablanca Things to Do

    The old part of Casablanca, within a set of city walls and known as the Medina, is surprisingly easy to miss. You could wander around the city centre for a few hours, then take a taxi out to the big mosque and the seaside, and not realise that the medina exists. It certainly doesn't compare to other medinas in places like Fes or Marrakesh, or even...

    Luxor Things to Do

    You get to the Karnak Temple and it's dark. There are hundreds of people waiting for the Sound and Light show to start. The sound was terrible, it was full of static and hard to hear as most of the tourists were chatting during the sound portion. The Light part of the show, well the only thing I can figure is that the lights were highlighting...

  • Game Drives (at night)

    Kruger National Park Things to Do

    This is a good time to spot animals. Make sure you wear warm clothing since the vehicle they take you in has open windows. They do provide you with blankets but the forest can be quite chilly in the nights and you would do well to go well protected.

  • Mercato

    Addis Ababa Things to Do

    The Mercato (from the Italian for "market"), is huge covering several square kilometers (and square miles) of space near downtown Addis Ababa. It is crowded and total mayhem and not nearly as picturesque as the Souks in North Africa. It is the largest outdoor market in Africa. There is a bit of organization here as vendors of similar goods tend to...

    This was my first-ever visit to the Tangier Kasbah, the ancient fortifications are impressive but modernised buildings have sprung up inside the fortress and vehicles demand access through the narrow streets which were only designed to accommodate carts, mules, horses and pedestrians. The original palace is now the museum ( 10 dirhams admission)...

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Nairobi Things to Do

    It is a small place with several Giraffes to feed. The experience was fun, if only our toddler weren't too scared to feed them herself. But she enjoyed picking up the feed from the floor for us to feed. It was a good experience for her overall. We could linger as long as we wanted and the feed was free flow. But 1 hour is really more than enough...

    Sousse Things to Do

    Sailing out of the harbour in a catamaran feels good. For the first 20 minutes or so, the engine is running, and then the sail is hoisted and it's amazing. The two guys running the show were friendly and you felt safe on the boat. No life-jackets, but this is Tunisia. There were four of us, and we did a fine bit of bartering - £20 for a few hours...

  • Bird Valley

    Agadir Things to Do

    This park is reasonable to walk through and it has goats and other animals to be seen. The only major draw back for me is the pitiful sight of an adult Barbary Macaque which is now alone since it's cage mate passed away. The cage is dark and dingy with no fresh grass or soft bedding. A big contrast to the luxurious surrounds his fellow Macaques in...

    The Bardo museum has the world's greatest collection of Roman Mosaics. It was recently the victim of a terrorist attack that killed 20+ tourist, however do not let this deter you, it is one of the most magnificent sights in Tunis and should not be missed.
