Sahara Desert, Merzouga, Morocco

Africa offers a great diversity to its visitors.  Morocco in the northwest of the continent is bordered by the Sahara desert.  It is hot, dry and sparsely populated.  Egypt in the northeast corner offers fabulous ancient historical remains spawned by the fertile Nile valley.  In the southeast, Kenya and Tanzania are the center of the amazing wildebeest and zebra migrations.  Visitors can still see the big five in the wild here - lion, leopard, cape buffalo and rhino.

Travel to Africa is more complicated than other continents.  Independent travel is more difficult to arrange and information about accommodation and transportation is not as readily available on the internet.  We recommend organized tours such as those provided by G Adventures, Intrepid Travel and other well known, reputable organizations.

Electrical Adapters

It's a good idea to bring a Type C and a Type G electrical adapter when traveling through Africa.  The standard North American plugs are not used there.
