    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.

    "A riad with great hospitality and character"
    We spent two nights in this lovely riad, and the most surprising thing was the world class hospitality. From check-in to check-out, the staff was very kind and the attention to details was just incredible. We were also given a mobile phone to contact the hotel in case of emergency. Room was more than spacious and well decorated. A splendid and peaceful interior courtyard is where you will have your breakfast and just relax if you wish to be away from the busy market. We also went for the hammam and massage offered by the hotel, which was simply heavenly. A must try!

    "Nice hotel"
    Stayed at this hotel for two weeks with my husband and two children, 12 and nine. The check in was efficient and quick. Our family room was huge and plenty of space. The boys loved the Olympic size swimming pool and the snack bar which is situated close by. The snack bar by the pool can only be used from 3pm by all inclusive customers, which can be a bit inconvenient, other guests however can use from 12 noon!! There are plenty of sun beds but some nationalities do seem to get priority. Don't leave your sun parasol unattended, it will be taken by the pool staff. There are three restaurants, an Italian which did lack atmosphere and had too bright lighting. I would have preferred my food to have had more flavour, but this is a personal taste. The Moroccan restaurant was 100 d per person extra about £7.00 but we never ate there. Friday was Moroccan night in the main restaurant and was the same food as served in the Moroccan restaurant. There was a plentiful choice of food in the main restaurant, if you were a vegetarian it was very limited to just salads. The staff in the main restaurant were very busy and a little disorganised I did have to lay my own table on a number of occasions and help myself to drinks. Maybe the drink serving situation could be looked into and a more efficient system adopted. Overall the staff and hotel were excellent and I would visit again.

    "Ideal Location"
    For the price we paid we couldn't fault this hotel. It fulfilled our needs adequately. Our room was very comfortable with facilities for making hot drinks and free wifi. Breakfast was served in the deli located nearby. I wish they'd used a more expensive cut of bacon, apart from that there was plenty of choice and the staff were very pleasant.

    "In the center, accessible. "
    The hotel is in an excelkent location. The staff are helpful in many ways. The buffet staff were moving a lot but sometimes you have to repeat what you need several times to get it. The rooms are ckean, the carpets though have seen better days and the bed is way too soft, it causes back pain.

    "Great place to stay"
    We stayed at the city lodge which is right at the airport. Very convienient if you don't mind walking 300 m to the terminal. Good restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Good free wifi. The protea was a little better on the food side but requires a shuttle that only comes every 30 minutes. It is not easy to find the shuttle from the terminal if you are not used to their lingo. Follow signs to "lifts". Both are safe. City lodge is my pick if you want convienience.
