Algeria travel guide

4
Churches · Gardens · Historic Sites
Algeria the White
The largest country on the continent, Algeria combines diverse landscapes with cultural intrigue and history. The north of the country has always been the most developed area, with the majority of the population living in cities along the Mediterranean coast. Roman ruins, modern and colonial architecture, renowned museums, and impressive coastal areas in the north represent some of the highlights of a vacation in Algeria. Heading south, the Sahara Desert takes hold. The dunes and nomadic tribes crossing the landscape offer a dreamier, less scripted counterpoint to the urbane north.

Morocco travel guide

4.1
Flea Markets · Gardens · Nature & Wildlife Tours
Diverse in landscapes and cultures, Morocco has long been a popular tourist destination, offering many quintessential North African vistas, sounds, and tastes. The ancient medinas of the main cities have retained their look and feel over the centuries, with bustling markets of colorful spice stalls, leather tanning in the streets, and teahouses. The dunes of the Sahara and the peaks of the High Atlas mountains battle for the interest of tourists on holiday in Morocco, with each possessing impressive, picturesque scenery, and hidden-away traditional villages, filled with crafts, carpets, and a rural way of life.

Tunisia travel guide

3.8
Historic Sites · Landmarks · Beaches
Tunisia benefits from its thin, slivery form, with a range of landscapes and climates causing diverse cultures, traditions, and lifestyles to develop over time. The lesser-visited south of the country possesses some major archaeological sites, impressive dunes, and caravans of nomadic peoples crossing the sands. The north contains many of the main cities in the country, located along the historic Mediterranean coast. Carthaginian and Roman ruins are found in and just outside the contemporary urban areas, which themselves blend African, Ottoman, and European influences. Many come for a beach holiday in Tunisia, but those who don't stop there are richly rewarded.

Libya travel guide

4.4
Landmarks · Ruins · Historic Sites
