    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 place but little things to make it fantastic"
    Room very good size AC needs to have stronger fan. I slept with no covers. No iron. Excellent pool view. WiFi good but moody. Double beds not comfy for two people. Security is visible everywhere. Distance from center of town cost money. Overall great and spacious place.

    "Well placed hotel with nice facilities"
    Nice hotel with lovely pools. Nice rooms. Food repetitive and poor with minimal vegetarian options. Staff generally didn't appear as if they wanted to be there, bar staff especially uninterested and sometimes grumpy, unlike any other all inclusive we've stayed in (however it was Ramadan).

    "Brilliant hotel!"
    We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Le Meridien. We were greeted by the most friendly, helpful and accommodating staff, who continued to impress us throughout our stay. The rooms are lovely and very well kept, with much appreciated air con and complimentary water, chocolate and flowers. Breakfast includes something for everyone, all of good quality. The pool is perfect and was surprisingly quiet and relaxed. The location is also great - the Medina is within walking distance (if the weather's not too hot) but otherwise is only a 40dh taxi away (just over £3). Excellent value for money!

    Exactly what we needed. Perfect place to relax and enjoy. The staff were excellent. From Maksoud in the Zodiac restaurant, to Reda, Aayman, and Mohammed in the beach and pool bars, we were taken care of. The reception staff assisted us with anything we needed. Concierge services assisted us on trips to town. Overall, the facilities and staff made our trip the bast vacation we have had in years.

    "Absolutely gorgeous hotel & 5 star service "
    Every moment of my stay at the One & Only was a pleasant experience. You will not be disappointed. From the most helpful concierge to the consistently friendly interaction with every staff member, this hotel is better than 5 stars. Just take a walk through the lobby to the pool- gorgeous. I loved the live music in the evenings as well. I stayed in the standard room- wasn't disappointed a bit. Huge bathroom with best shower ever :) I could go on & on.

    "First night in Cape Town"
    We started our trip to South Africa in Cape Town and stayed at the Taj. It is a great hotel in a relatively safe area. Parking is only by valet since it is in town. When we asked the concierge for a place to have dinner they gave us excellent recommendations that were just a taxi ride away. We chose one in amps bay which was only a 25 minute cab ride. The breakfast at the hotel is excellent and quite upscale, as you would expect from a 5 star rated hotel.. The room was comfortable and even had a glass wall between the bathroom and the bed area. All in all it was an excellent start to our adventures of shark diving and horseback safari's.
