Kenya, Morocco, Senegal & Tunisia — Introduction
Discover Africa’s incredible diversity from Kenya’s awesome wildlife to the bustling souks of Morocco and Tunisia and the off-the-beaten-track delights of Senegal.
Kenya’s Indian Ocean beaches prove an irresistible setting for relaxation and adventure.
From the beautiful shores of Lake Victoria to the steep peaks of Mount Kenya, vivid plains and laid-back coastal towns, Kenya is a mighty country with attractions in abundance.
From Mombasa to Malindi there’s any number of excellent beaches on which to relax and you can complete your African sojourn with a safari at nearby Tsavo National Park – spotting the continent’s most impressive animals.
Northern Africa offers an unparalleled mystique and variety. Here ancient cultures blend with French influences and the beauty of Africa to create staggering destinations.
Morocco is synonymous with cities whose very names resonate with people the world over. Marrakesh is an exhilarating, bustling city with treasure-trove souks and a fascinating medina. Be swept away with the romance of Casablanca. This coastal city is a powerful draw to any visitor to the country, with impressive mosques and an array of great restaurants, while Agadir is a perfect beach retreat.
The sweet smell of jasmine greets visitors to Hammamet, in Tunisia. The town is renowned for growing these pretty flowers and jasmine souvenirs are widely available. But Hammamet is perhaps most famous for its excellent beaches which make it a popular destination for sun-bathing, swimming and water sports.
Like the countries of North Africa, Senegal in the west of the continent has a fantastic French influence. Just 80 kilometres from the capital Dakar, Saly Portudal is the most famous resort on the West African coast.
Here you’ll find brilliant sandy beaches backed by beautifully bizarre baobab trees. Saly Portudal-M’bour is a great area for game fishing and for those who want to take a walk on the wild side, there’s the small nature reserve of Bandia where you can see giraffe, white rhino, zebra, crocodiles, monkeys and more.
