Africa

It is hard to speak of Africa and avoid clichés. Dangerous (in some places), ancient (the birthplace of mankind) and just awesome in terms of landscape, wildlife and people. From the little I have seen of this immense and misunderstood continent, it is truly fascinating. I’ve been to Kenya and Malawi in the more central regions, and Egypt and Tunisia in the north. The classic African safari experience is a must, and Kenya’s Masai Mara is one place that does not disappoint for that. In addition the coast offers great swimming, fishing and chilled out-ness. Malawi is desperately poor and it shows almost everywhere, but the people are beautiful and there are great spots to be found. Egypt should need no introduction, and Tunisia (photos coming soon) is a lovely country to travel around by bus and train, with history spots galore, The Sahara and a great fusion of Mediterranean & Arabic cuisine. If going to anywhere in Africa check up on vaccinations and areas of civil unrest. There are some particularly nasty diseases in some places, and political situations can change quickly and you need to be informed of any potentially unsafe areas. Get proper travel insurance, don’t take anything valuable and travel light. See the individual pages for more details on each specific country.
