    truly an ancient wonder! The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact

    Egyptian Museum

    Tahrir Square, Cairo Egypt
    89 reviews

    There are many valuable antiques that recorded the history of Egypt, however, it is not very well maintained. The showroom for King Tutankhamun on the 1st floor is a must see attraction you cannot miss.

    Table Mountain

    Tafelberg Road, Cape Town 7493 South Africa
    66 reviews

    Table Mountain is a must-do if you're visiting Cape Town. The iconic rock is a lot of fun for both hikers and sightseers. If you're up for a challenge, you can take one of several trails up the mountain that range from moderate to more difficult ones that even include a bit of rock climbing. If you just want to ...

    Smaller than what i imagined... still impressive. There is a sound and light show everyday at 6 pm next to the sphinx. It's worth watching.

    Great Pyramid of Khufu

    Giza Plateau, Giza 12561 Egypt
    49 reviews

    This is one big structure - and they built it by hand - impossible, the aliens did it. Seriously, to walk up and see how large the blocks of limestone are and think of how they did this is incredible. This is the largest of the pyramids here and is the oldest of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. ...

    Khan El Khalili-bazaar

    Cairo, Cairo (Area), Egypt
    56 reviews

    Meh. I mean, you can walk around here once for atmosphere, but for actual shopping--don't do it! Well, OK--the gold quarter is good for those hieroglyph necklaces, and there's a great old silk shop on the main drag, but otherwise, the hassle and the crappiness of the products outweighs the history of the place. For actual shopping, you're much better ...

    Djemaa el Fna

    Rue de la Koutoubia, Marrakech, Morocco
    44 reviews

    This spectacular square is the heart of the Medina and it beats loudly and with intensity. Tourists are certainly everywhere but the locals prevail and this spot delivers on being magical. Eat, drink and people watch. If you don't like snakes, avoid the music.

    Boulders Beach

    Off Queens Road, Cape Town 7995 South Africa
    40 reviews

    This white-sand beach is surrounded by granite boulders. But no one notices the beach due to the colony of penguins that live here. Thousands of penguins! Wooden walkways keep people away from them, though there are plenty of photo opportunities. A major (read: crowded) attraction, but one that's hard to pass up.

    Karnak Temple

    31 reviews

    One of the first sights you will see when you visit Luxor. Easily accessible from town and very impressive. Relatively manageable but you'll want to seek out shade during the midday heat. A guided tour is a helpful way to understand what it was like originally and how it was used.

    V&A Waterfront

    Victoria & Alfred Hotel Waterfront, Breakwater Boulevard, Cape Town, South Africa
    40 reviews

    The Victoria and Albert Waterfront is where most of Cape Town's shopping action seems to be. There are plenty of restaurants and lots to see. Check out the giant man made out of Coca-Cola crates.

    Another gorgeous place to visit in South Africa. Make sure you drive through the reserve forest to get there, there are baboons on the road! but be careful as to not roll down your windows or get out of your car, they may attack you! Also it's extremely windy, so hold on to your hats and consider wearing shorts if ...

    Toubkal Trekking

    Douar Imlil, Asni Marrakech, Imlil 42152, Morocco
    22 reviews

    I normally don't like guided walking tours. However, this trekking company seemed to anticipate my every need. Very professional and warm. I felt more like I was visiting with a relative than with a tour company. I highly recommend them.

    Medina of Marrakesh

    29 reviews

    It feels like going into a labyrinth - you can get in but can't get out. Make sure you have a local guide. It's exciting to explore those small alleys in between old buildings! The shopping can be equally crazy - just make sure you have enough space in your luggage

    Amazing display of plants and scenery! I went to a concert in the park as well and it was the best thing I did in South Africa. I truly felt like a local.

    Cape of Good Hope Reserve

    Cape Town, South Africa
    22 reviews

    The Cape of Good Hope Reserve is large and we only had time to explore part of it. It include of course, Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, but also many small beaches and wilderness areas to explore. Other than the two obvious areas, we enjoyed driving around the park and stopped off at Buffels Bay on the ...
