    22 reviews

    I went on toubkal tour with 8 other people and Moha as our guide. It was truly memorable on many levels. The scenery was gorgeous, the accommodation at tents & berber lodges were comfortable and the company was outstanding. Our group got along really well andMoha was entertaining, helpful and encouraging. I highly recommend this trekking company in Morocco and ...

    A fan of heights? Jump in the Cableway to the top of Table Mountain in South Africa and sweep your bride-to-be off her feet with an unrivalled view across Cape Town, the peaks and the vast ocean. If you want to propose a little closer to the ground, head to the long, whitesand Bloubergstrand Beach for a Table Mountain-backdrop to ...

    Forodhani Gardens

    8 reviews

    During the day it's scattered with both locals escaping the heat or taking a lunch break and tourists attempting to escape touts. At night it becomes a bustling social arena and the site of Zanzibar's essential night market, where you'll find both street food vendors and craftsmen hawking their wares. .

    Islamic Cairo

    22 reviews

    If you're a Nageeb Mafouz fan or a would-be Orientalist looking for traces of what was, Islamic Cairo is about as evocative as it gets. The cacophonous calls to prayer, the multitude of minarets and the occassional donkey cart going by all add texture upon the scent of yesteryear that permeates this ancient district of Cairo, the City Victorious.

    The Company Gardens

    2 reviews

    This central Cape Town park was originally used to grow vegetables for ships passing along the southern coast. It now has a rose garden, shady spots in which to relax, and open spaces to play. The perfect place to stroll after visiting nearby museums.

    The scale and diversity make the souks of Marrakech great fun. Prepare to get lost but 10 MAD to a child works well as a parachute back to Place Jemaa el Fna.

    Morocco Culture Tours

    16 reviews

    Mohamed guided our group of nine persons through various cities in Morocco (arriving in Casablanca and visiting many cities – including Rabat, Fes, the desert, and Ouarzazate (among others) – before departing from Marrakech). Mohamed did an excellent job planning and executing our tour, which included selecting and arranging the accommodations (all of which were well-chosen and as described before ...

    The historic center of Tangier is a timeless place to wander narrow streets and lose yourself among the sights and smells of fresh fruit and spice markets. Plenty of souvenirs to be found, but never pay the first price they ask!

    Zambezi River Cruise

    2 reviews

    There are at least a dozen companies that offer these cruises. All are similar in that they take you up the river, stopping for elephants or giraffes or hippos or whatever else is hanging around the river banks (usually there's plenty to see). When the sun sets, you head back in the direction of the falls and return to shore ...

    Groenkloof Nature Reserve

    2 reviews

    Excellent! Even if you aren't in South Africa for tourism, it easy to get here from Pretoria with just a few hours free. You will have a better experience with a vehicle that can handle the rougher roads (or a mountain bike). We saw zebra, wildebeest, and 4 different antelope, along with bee catchers and weaver birds and quite a ...

    Morocco Culture Tours

    13 reviews

    We just got back from a truly wonderful trip to Morocco. It's the kind of trip that you will perhaps make once in a lifetime, but will stay with you forever. From the very first email contact with Mohamed, everything was organised perfectly. I was very impressed with his professional manner and willingness to explain everything carefully and in detail. ...

    Mount Sinai

    13 reviews

    The first time I climbed Mt Sinai--which you do at night, to avoid the heat and to arrive at sunrise--I stumbled along behind a wiry man in nothing but a loincloth. He soon disappeared up the hill, and had disappeared by the time I finally hit the peak, a couple hours later. But I didn't miss the sunrise, dramatic over ...

    Apartheid Museum

    4 reviews

    This is an excellent repository of information about the history of apartheid presented in a very confusing manner. We had to be told several times that we were going the wrong way. And when we went the correct way it wasn't necessarily in an order that made sense.

    Diani Beach

    2 reviews

    The scenery is stunning here. Long white sand beaches, fringed with aqua blue water. There are also some very nice high-end all-inclusive style resorts here. However, as far as I could tell there was not too much more in Diani, and over half of the beach front properties are huge deserted ghost hotels which is just a bit eire. The ...

    Rosebank African Crafts Market

    7 reviews

    This is a great place to do some souvenir shopping. Dozens of stalls sell authentic, well made African crafts. My favorite thing about the set-up is that on the upper level, it's much like a regular shop with more or less fixed prices. On the lower level you can shop in true African fashion and haggle.

    Lilongwe Crafts Market

    2 reviews

    You'll find crafts markets like this all over Malawi. This might not be the best one but it is one of the more easily accessible ones. The Malawi chairs are the best and I have seen people carry them home on the plane. They're very cool and worth that hassle. If you're not up to that challenge, though, a chess ...
