Africa is where life begun with Black Eve, Africa is where civilization first developed on the Banks of the river Nile. From the old Arab cities of North Africa, through the enormous desert of the Sahara, from the thick of the jungle to the great Game Parks, Africa offers a huge diversity of sights to the traveller. But above all, getting in contact with the native inhabitants makes it an unforgettable visit.

Going through Africa from the North to the South, you will first encounter six arab-berber countries: Morocco , Algeria , Tunisia , Libya , Egypt and Mauritania . The inhabitants of these countries are almost 100 percent muslims. Among the highlights of this part of the continent we would like to mention Cairo with its pyramids, Luxor with its valley of Kings, the medieval cities of Morocco such as Marrakesh and Fez and the cities of Tangier , Rabat and Casablanca .

Below, you will find the Sahel region. The countries are predominantly Muslim, but African heritage with its influence dominates. Senegal including the famous Dakar and Mali with places like Timbuktu , Segou and Mopti are among the most visited countries here.

West Africa sees relatively few tourists which in some cases may be due to political turmoil. Ghana has good beaches and nice forts. Togo is a gem under the West African countries and so is Benin and the Ivory Coast . Nigeria has many sights but travelling there can be time- and nerveracking.

Central Africa too, has had its fair share of trouble in recent years, which is the reason why many travellers deleted countries such as the Central African Republic , Rwanda and Congo Kinshasa (formerly known as Zaire) from their to do and to see list.

East Africa however is a real treat. Ethiopia with its ancient Christan civilization and spectacular mountain scenery and Kenya and Tanzania with their great game wildlife parks are a must for travellers.

The south is getting more popular since it is Political Correct to visit South Africa . This marvellous country definitely deserves a visit and travel there is easy as numerous airlines offer flights on a regular basis. A trip there can be combined with Botswana , Zimbabwe and Namibia which are equally fascinating destinations.
