NORTH AFRICA

From the bustling cities of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and Egypt to the tranquil beaches of the Mediterranean, North Africa is a must-see destination for any avid traveler. The region boasts a rich and colorful cultural heritage that can be experienced through its majestic mosques and pyramids, vibrant souks and delicious cuisine.

For the adventurous, the Sahara desert beckons with its majestic dunes and breathtaking panoramas. The Atlas Mountains provide a scenic backdrop for trekkers and climbers, while the Mediterranean coastline is perfect for water sports and relaxation.

Due to its location at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and the Middle East, North Africa has always held an important role as a trading hub and gateway to other regions. This has resulted in a fascinating blend of cultures and traditions which are evident in the architecture, music, art and fashion of the region.

In addition to its natural beauty and cultural attractions, North Africa is also a popular destination for history buffs. From the ancient ruins of Carthage and Leptis Magna to the Islamic architecture of Fez and Marrakech, the region’s history is as intriguing as it is diverse.

Attracting more tourists each year, North Africa is a destination that truly offers something for everyone. It’s no wonder that it has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most intriguing and fascinating regions in the world.

As a region, North Africa is very different from the countries to the south. The strong Arabic influence on the people and culture bely the ancient history of rule from other kingdoms, empires and civilisations such as the Berber, Greek, Roman and Ottoman – all of whom have left their mark in one way or another.

Now a growing destination for tourists from around the world, North Africa has a huge diversity of wonderment to offer.
