Africa is perhaps the purest and most impressive continent in the world. We also have a whole bucket list of countries in this continent that we want to visit. For example, South Africa, Kenya and Namibia are at the top of our list. Especially the beautiful unspoilt nature that you can find here attracts us. Although the culture of Egypt also appeals to us. Unfortunately, this is also not the cheapest continent to travel through. But sometimes you can find good deals. You regularly find cheap deals to go to Egypt, Kenya and Morocco. And we took advantage of this as well. We went to Morocco for a good price and that was a fantastic first experience with Africa. Afterwards we also visited South-Africa and Egypt. It always was a good experience and therefore we are curious about the rest of this beautiful continent.
Egypt is one of those countries in Africa where you can combine a sun holiday by the sea with a lot of culture. Just think of the rich history that this country carries. And you can still find and see it today. Because in addition to the famous pyramids of Giza, you also have the temples of Karnak, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings where Tutankhamun has been found. We visited these places from Hurghada, but there are certainly many other possibilities.
Visiting Morocco has always been on our bucket list, even if only for drinking the delicious mint tea they have. In Morocco, it was mainly Marrakesh that got our attention. Because shopping in the souks is really something you must have done in your life. Although there is much more in Marrakesh than just the souks. For example, you have a few beautiful mosaic-tiled mosques and palaces that you will only encounter in Morocco. Of course Morocco has even more to offer than this city. For example Casablanca, Fez, Tangier and the desert are also worth a visit. Morocco was a beautiful and fun first introduction to this continent!
South Africa is marked as a dream destination for many people and that is not surprising. The culture, history and nature of this country make this one very special. Although the biggest reason is of course sightseeing in nature. This is one of the only countries in the world where you can spot both the big five of the land and the big five of the sea. There’s so much to see and do. Reasons enough to travel to the country with cities such as Cape Town and Johannesburg.
