North Africa

Stretching the length of the Mediterranean’s southern shores towards the coral wonderland of the Red Sea, North Africa is fascinating melting pot of ancient Nubian, Arabic and Berber cultures and civilisations. Walled citadels sit alongside modern cities and tribal villages set against the soaring peaks of the Atlas Mountains and wind-sculpted dunes of the Sahara Desert. The Great Pyramids of Egypt need little introduction yet head east along the coast and you discover breathtaking beaches, picturesque villages and some of the finest ruins of the classical world. In Libya, there are few sites to rival the Roman City of Leptis Magna  while cross into Tunisia and you can marvel at the great Phoenician Capital Carthage and impressive El Djem amphitheatre. 

In Morocco, medieval medinas from Marrakech to Fez hide a bustling labyrinth of alleys, souqs and bazaars that assault your every sense. Here, basing yourself in a traditional Riad Palace, you can escape the heady atmosphere and experience a soothing oasis of tranquility. Away from the cities, the landscapes are dotted with terracotta canyons, crumbling kasbah fortresses and Hollywood film sets. Finally, gorges dissolve into rolling Saharan dunes, the wonderful base for camel treks to remote desert camps – the climax of any North African itinerary!  

 

Morocco

Clinging to the north-western tip of Africa, Morocco evokes the mystery and intrigue of ancient Arabia, a land where crumbling Kasbah citadels sit beneath the soaring Atlas Mountains peering out towards the shimmering haze of the Sahara.
