Camel Tour of Cairo

Egypt – The nation of Egypt has long been part of the fabric of our world. Tales of ancient pharaohs, forgotten tombs and royal burial chambers mix with the modern world, creating a unique blend of the two worlds, in which the residents happily live. A visit to Egypt can be an incredible experience. Of course, the “must see” sites include the Great Pyramid at Giza, a journey down the Nile river, the city of Alexandria, the enigmatic Sphinx and the rich historical site of Luxor.

You will find that Morocco is chock full of things to see and do, enticing all manner of visitors from around the world.

Tunisia – The small nation of Tunisia boasts almost 750 miles of coastline, lined with resorts, beaches, pleasure barges and more. This nation is one of the most frequented by international travelers, due to the large number of five star resorts that litter the beach communities. However, you’ll find far more than beaches in Tunisia. Visit the columns salvaged from the famed city of Carthage, or the Zitouna Mosque. The Mehari Diving Center offers fun for all, as well. Numerous other historical sites can be found throughout the land, providing you with incredible ways to enjoy your stay.

Sahara Sand Dune, Libya

North Africa is also home to other nations, such as Libya and Algeria – both of which offer intriguing options for exploration and enjoyment.
