    Africa

    Africa is a common destination for tourists from all over the world. There is something primal about this beautiful land that calls many people to it, and a trip to Africa is a once-in-a-lifetime experience sure to create memories to be cherished for the rest of one's life.

    Weather in South Africa tends to be hot all-year round, with an average temperature of 85 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius) during the day. At night, temperatures drop quite a bit. Because the temperature remains so constant throughout the year, the main determining factor as far as when to go will be whether it is the rainy or dry season.

    The dry season runs from October through March. The dry season is the best time to visit if you are planning to go to one of Africa's breathtaking beaches. If you are planning on a safari, the dry season is also an optimal time to visit thanks to the fact that the animals will conveniently gather around watering holes during this season.

    The wet season lasts from April to July along the coast and from July to September further inland. If you are planning a trip to areas such as Mali, this is the best time to go as temperatures tend to be a bit cooler.

    Africa offers a wide variety of things to see and experience. For those who love to watch wildlife, a safari is a great opportunity to do just that. If you prefer to lounge around in a posh beach resort, there are plenty of those along Africa's coastline. While a visit to Egypt to see the pyramids and experience Egyptian culture is the perfect trip for history, culture, and archaeology buffs.

    The Indian Ocean

    The beautiful Indian Ocean is scattered with many beautiful islands that present a picturesque place to relax and soak up the warm sun. There are many places in the Indian Ocean that make for excellent diving spots, and there is an abundance of great exotic marine wildlife to interact with and view.

    Great grounds, with two excellent swimming pools. Very good buffets at the main restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff. Very convenient for central Marrakech. Our two 7 year old daughters loved it.

    "Perfect Haven"
    We booked the royal suite as a treat (which was not much more expensive than the regular rooms) and it was larger than my London flat. The traditional décor was beautiful and it was a real treat to stay there. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and the Riad was perfect for a short city break to Marrakesh. The rooms do not have a TV (this is deliberate to add to the traditional feel) and internet is sketchy unless you are in the main areas, however, it was great to put down the blackberry and have a valid reason not to be contactable 24/7. The roof top sun terrace and plunge pool / Jacuzzi is perfect for afternoon sundowners after a busy day sightseeing.

    "Enclosed perfection"
    Lovely stay! The first day we were welcomed with Moroccan mint tea. We hadn't booked any excursions whilst put there so Selma provided us with a book detailing what we could do with prices. We highlighted the ones we were interested in, and she advised us which options were more interesting or better value. The room was clean and tidy, and the maids would make the beds up each day. The dinners in the evening, whilst more expensive than some restaurants in town, was definitely worth it (although it really wasn't overly expensive anyway)! Abdul was also fantastic, allowing us to have an earlier breakfast on some days that we had excursions. Selma also has connections for various drivers, and we were given a driver called Zach who was extremely friendly and helpful, giving information about various places we drove past as well as taking us to only the places that wouldn't overcharge us etc upon stopping during long drives. Going back to the Riad, there is a small pool which is lovely if you fancy cooling off, and a rooftop terrace which offers sun beds to help you tan. Overall, the staff were all welcoming and friendly, and the stay was entirely pleasing. I would thoroughly recommend.

    "Perfect location for stay in cape town"
    This hotel is right next to the beach with great views of table mountain, also good place to watch the sunset. Hotel staff are great and will help you with anything. There are free shuttle services to the V & A waterfront and canal walk which I used quite a lot. Rooms are of a good size and are cleaned to a good standard everyday.

    "Beautiful hotel with fantastic service"
    The service at this hotel is fabulous, every employee from porter to reception to shuttle driver is impeccably polite and they went out of their way to help us figure out things. How to store our luggage for a few extra hours, how to take their free shuttle service, etc. The fitness room was closed for renovation , yet they provided a free shuttle to a nearby gym which was far nicer than mine at home. The beds at the hotel are luxurious, bathrooms beautiful, included breakfast was gourmet! Not the kind of cheap continental breakfast we're used to in the US. Only 2 blocks from many restaurants and upscale shops in a giant mall, including an indoor arts and crafts market, and a supermarket for groceries. Only 3 easy blocks to highspeed rail station, easy to walk, but hotel will happily shuttle you there or pick you up if you call them. No other shopping outside of the huge mall, as it is a banking district.

    "Airport hotel"
    Clean, very comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms. Restaurant was warming with an extensive menu. This hotel definitely breaks the mould for airport hotels with great character and good food. Staff were friendly and attentive but still gave you your privacy. The free shuttle bus ran to schedule and was well signposted in the airport. Value for money.
