A magical blend of the best of Africa and Europe, Morocco is easily reached from the UK and is an outstandingly diverse destination that provides excellent opportunities for both relaxation and outdoor exploration. Egypt offers an intoxicating mix of ancient and modern, together with winter sunshine and fabulous diving, and Libya is a land of dramatic contrasts just waiting to be discovered.
The wind of change is sweeping through North Africa as its people seek to establish democratic rule and determine their own destiny. Fiona is an experienced traveller in the region and understands it well. This, combined with the attention to detail of our in-country partners on the ground, means you can have confidence in planning your itinerary with her.
Fiona’s travel tips
DON’T MISS: Dahabiyas, small boats taking 4-6 people — the ‘boutique’ option for Nile cruising.
FOR THE ACTIVE: A dawn climb to St. Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai or trekking with mules in the High Atlas.
TOP TIP: Morocco used to have a reputation for being a place where visitors got hassled. This has changed hugely. Now you might even have a ‘Monty Python’ moment: “Come on, ask me to buy a carpet”!
BEST TIME TO GO:
Morocco: September to May
Libya: Spring and autumn
