Africa in detail

North Africa



Islamic Culture

Ancient Civilisations

The glories of ancient Egypt are the most famous, but extraordinary Roman and Greek cities and other cities of Mediterranean antiquity are found all along the North African coast.

The Sahara Desert

The Sahara is the stuff of dreams, and while much of it is off limits, accessible desert expeditions are possible in Egypt and Morocco. In the last, you can drop down from the epic Atlas Mountains into the dunes that stretch deep into Africa.

The Beauty of Islam

Whether in Marrakesh, Fez, Algiers or Cairo, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the best of Arab-Islamic culture, from the soaring mosques and exquisite architecture to the warm hospitality for which the region is famous.
