    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 location to explore the city of Cape Town fr"
    Lovely hotel located in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, and located within minutes of lots of shopping, restaurants, and very near the Cape Wheel. I've stayed here before but several years ago before they had added on the third floor. This time they were doing renovation of the ground floor reception area. Nonetheless, we were placed in a room at the far end of the renovation and we didn't hear any construction noise and slept quite soundly. The hotel is very comfortable and pleasant. Because of the renovation, the hotel dining facilities (including afternoon wine/snacks) were held at the Forum, a building right next to the hotel. A minor but acceptable convenience. Except for a few minor maintenance issues mentioned below, there the hotel was in good shape and well serviced, including very friendly and helpful staff.
