    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.

    "Friendly hotel close to the Medina "
    Warm and friendly hotel, in close proximity to the Medina area in Marrakech and the souqs. Staff were very helpful and spoke good English; in particular Ismail and Mohammed at the reception desk and Youssef in the restaurant. Booked an excursion to outside Marrakech through them that was enjoyable. Really enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend it!

    "Excellent Hotel and the staff are amazing"
    The hotel was excellent, the staff could not have done more to be friendly or helpful, they are a credit to the hotel - we would happily stay here again and again. I have seen on previous reviews people complain about the food and hotel I don't know where they were staying or eating but it wasn't here. We had a 5 day stay, every morning we could not have asked for more for breakfast, the selection on offer was vast and you could not have asked for more, from very healthy to full blow out cooked breakfast. There was not one member of staff who didn't say hello, or good morning or even "how can I help you" without us having to ask - PERFECTION. The location of the hotel is excellent, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Marrakech but not to far away that we couldn't walk it. The hotels concierge could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable. We told him what we had wanted to visit and do and he arranged to perfection every single details for 5 full days of utter pleasure and fun. We visited everything you could want to see from the top of the mountains to the desert to the local snake charmers, the hotel is lucky to have him and should make certain he stays with them. The hotel owners should be very proud of the level of professionalism shown by of all their staff from the reception, bar staff, cleaners and the chef's - excellent.

    Taj Cape Town

    1 Wale Street, Cape Town - Map
    "A great hotel"
    I have been lucky enough to stay in quite a few very good hotels in Europe and North America as a result of copious amounts of business. The Cape Taj would certainly rank among the top 5 worldwide I have stayed in and quite frankly I would not even consider staying in another hotel if I go to Cape Town again. One of the strong features of the Taj group is the quality of their staff (I have used the Taj Lusaka on numerous occasions and here too the staff stand out). I liked the location which some may not - it was in the old town and so I thought it rather more real (and also perfectly safe) than the V&A Waterfront hotels which can be a bit blingy. An almost perfect hotel experience.

    "Nice hotel close to airport. "
    This was our second stay here. We stayed in this hotel on a prior trip. It is conveniently close to the airport with a free shuttle. The staff is friendly. Our only problem was that the waiter had us pay cash for dinner although we had a credit card on file. The front desk said this was an error but there was no attempt to correct the situation.
