Hello! My husband, 5-year-old daughter and I will be traveling to Fes for 2 weeks in December/January and would like to go on a desert camping trip for 3-5 days. Can anyone recommend a reputable company to book with?
I'm going to Senegal for work in November 2016. I will have three days before the conference starts for tourism things and either one or two days after, depending on when I book flights. I will be based in Les Almadies, near the airport whilst working - those days will be jam packed though and won't have time to do anything in that area on those days, even in the evenings. I will be travelling alone, and am female in my mid twenties, don't speak much french.
I'm thinking for the 3 days…
I just came back from a week safari with Lelobu Safaris in Botswana and couldn't be happier. I'm not one of their employees or a personal friend, but just a very satisfied traveler who was lucky to choose them.
The safari was perfectly organized. 2 days at Oddsball Camp in the Okavango Delta, 3 days in the Khwai Development Trust and then the last couple of days in the Chobe National Park (Savuti and Riverfront).
We first took s scenic flight from Maun to Oddsball Camp. The setting there is…
I visited Lalibela in January this year and have finally gotten around to writing up a blog post about it. It covers Lalibela itself as well as some of the churches in surrounding towns, which I'd highly recommend visiting. In essence: Lalibela lives up to and even exceeds the hype surrounding it, and I'll definitely be returning in future.

My husband and I are going to Morocco for our honeymoon in mid-September and will be there for 3.5 weeks. We're flying in and out of Marrakesh and will be renting a car. I'd love any thoughts / suggestions on our itinerary! I've included driving times based on google maps, so not sure how accurate these are. Does this plan seem doable? Or is this too much driving / too fast a pace? Is there anything in particular we should cut to save time? Or add because it's awesome? Thank you!
I wish to hire camping gear such as two perons tents, sleeping bags, blanket and similar for three nights for our group either in Arusha or Mtu Wa Mbu while we do safari to Ndutu/Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
Please let me know a reliable person with cost for same
Hello all! I would like to attend a few days of the Gerewol festival in Niger this September and would like to know the exact dates. I realize the dates change every year with the rains and would like to know if exact dates have been established for this year. I've contacted numerous agency's and hotels in Niger and either get conflicting dates or no answer. Also, I've read on this topic from years back that it was previously possible to travel to Agadez independently and secure a guide/vehicle…
This Mali board doesn't get updated that much, it seems. I am looking at going to Mali for a week or two in September/October with my girlfriend this year and I was wondering what the security situation is like, especially in the capital and Timbuktu. We live in Guinea-Bissau and would be travelling to Mali overland from Senegal.
