TRAVEL IN AFRICA & THE MIDDLE EAST

From the biblical lands of Israel to the spice islands of Zanzibar, the Middle East and Africa are parts of the world worth dedicating many months and years of travel to. Adventurers here may find themselves drifting to the great heights of Mount Kilimanjaro or the low valley of the Dead Sea, sampling the unique terrain and biodiversity of more than 75 countries. It is home to many rich archaeological sites, religious monuments and diverse cultural groups, offering the chance to visit the supposed tomb of Jesus, gawk at fossils some 250 million years old, and admire tribes of humans still living in harmony with the earth to the beat of traditional ways of life. Shoppers can find themselves in a maze of rugs sampling rosewater delights in Turkey’s bazaars, or sifting through brightly coloured beaded jewellery in the capital of Tanzania. Animal lovers can be admire colonies of penguins on the beaches of South Africa, share breakfast with giraffes in a foliage covered Kenyan manor, and take an Africa safari in the wild lands of the countries east. With so many reasons to visit Africa and the Middle East, the only hard decision is choosing which area to explore first. One solution is to consult the colourful calendar of festivals in the region to see if your trip could time up with something extraordinary; think Oppikoppi music festival in South Africa or Passover in Israel. However you take on this collection of countries it is sure to delight; the Middle East and Africa will rouse each of your senses from sun up ‘til sun down.
