    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 hotel, highly recommended for families "
    We stayed at Le Meredian N'fis last week and totally enjoyed our stay. The hotel grounds are massive and very well kept. The pool is very clean but not heated so not suitable for cold weather. The rooms are spacious and clean. The only thing missing was tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast is fantastic with an omelette chef and a pancake and paratha chef (traditional fried flat bread to die for!) The staff are very friendly and helpful and offer good tips. Exchange rate is also very good so no need to find one elsewhere. A big shopping mall offers great restaurants and a big food court with panaromic views. It also has 2 stories of kids rides! I would stay at this hotel again if I went back.

    "Quiet and v well maintained"
    We visited Stella in April 2016. Tourism in Sharm is way down as a result of recent attacks, all the hotels are quiet, almost to the point of being "hushed". Stella is certainly 4.5 stars, well located however away from the main drag. Amenities excellent, staff v friendly.

    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.

    "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.
