Hi travellers,

Following the recent tragedy in Tunisia, we've put together some info on the situation that may prove helpful if you are currently travelling in, or thinking of travelling to, the country.

What’s going on?

On Friday 26 June, at least one gunman opened fire on tourists staying in the popular resort of Port El Kantaoui, just north of Sousse in Tunisia. Thirty-eight people, at least 30 of them British, lost their lives. Islamic State (IS) has said it was behind the attack, during…

Can anyone recommend accommodation in Huye (Butare)? Is it OK to just show up, or do I need to book in advance?

Thanks!

Hi,

If we stay inside the national park in Masai Mara (keekorok lodge or Ol Moran camp) for 4 days, do we need to pay the park entry fee for all 4 days or we pay just one time 80 USD?

Do we have to pay this fees at the entrance gate or the lodge where we stay?

Our plan is to stay 4 days and do 3 full day safaris while staying inside the park in a vehicle we hire.

What would be best / economical way to do this?

Is there a list of good car rental companies in Nairobi where we can hire a…

Am planning to attend the Gerowal Festival in September and want to hire a car and driver in Agadez to take me there then back to Agadez. Is it possible to drive to the festival from Agadez in a regular car or does it have to be a 4WD.
Thanks

Looking to take a trip to SA in very late Sept - October but i have a few questions. Right now, my plan is to fly into Joburg, spend 2 days there then fly to Cape town for about 14 days and work my way from there eventually ending back in Cape Town and back to NYC. I am very interested in exploring the areas around Cape Town and going up the SW coast.
In doing my research, it seems that one is very limited if one does not rent a car. As silly as it sounds, i don't even have a drivers license.

Hi all. I have a 10 day tour planned with Expat Travel for August. In light of the current terrorist threats, government warnings and Tunisia attacks I'm feeling pretty apprehensive about going. Has anyone got an upcoming trip to Egypt planned which they still intend on going through with? or has anyone been recently that can shed some light on the safety of the country? We begin the tour in Cairo then on to Aswan, Luxor, Hurgada and back to Cairo. I still really want to go however a part of me…

I know the question looks dumb and Morocco seems to be quite safe to me, but I'd like to know if any solo female travelers here can give me some safety advice that'd be useful in Morocco.
I'm 20, from Hong Kong, will be in Morocco in the first week of September.
I'm on a tight budget but I wonder if it's better to join the tours going from Marrakesh to Fez instead of taking train/bus alone....
And also thinking about couchsurfing or staying in those raids, which I looked up on Airbnb and they are…
