South Africa – The Land of Everything
South Africa is the most southern country in Africa. It is located between the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The capital is Pretoria. In this day’s article we will talk about touristic destinations of this beautiful country and we will tell you also some interesting facts.
Morrocco, Ouarzazate – Atlas Film Studios
raveling to see movie backdrop is more popular every year, so it's no wonder that the Ouarzazate Moroccan Valley is a sought-after and, most of all, a cheap destination for movie enthusiasts from around the world. Everyone is eager to see and touch the scenery that has played a major role in many series and movies. In the valley you can see real shooting places, such as the historic Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou. Above all, there are large Atlas studios built on the dusty plains of the eastern foothills of the Atlas Mountains.
Morrocco, Ourika Valley – Setti Fatma Watefalls
Ourika Valley is about 30 km from Marrakesh, literally on the high Atlas. A river of the same name flows through it, creating a narrow valley between the high mountains and a narrow valley on both banks.
Morocco, Essaouira – A Town with French Charm
If you want to move to a quieter but equally interesting area of Marrakesh for a moment, the coastal city of Essaouira (formerly known as Mogador) is the right choice. Located on the west coast of Morocco, this pleasant city is soaked in the Atlantic Ocean and the way to it is through endless argan fields.
Morrocco, Imlil - A Climb Up Jebel Toubkal
Imlil is a relatively small mountain village located in the western part of the Atlas Mountains, roughly in the central part of Morocco. In fact, it is not so interesting in itself, but still welcomes thousands of visitors every year. You ask why? This is the place where alpine tourism enthusiasts go to the highest mountain in North Africa, Jebel Toubkal.
Morrocco: Tinghir - Todra and Dadés Gorges
If you are going to the desert while traveling across Morocco, do not miss the relatively large provincial town of Tinghir and its annexed Palmeria on your way to Merzouga. It is actually an oasis, the last nice place to live before entering the plains leading into the desert. There are over 40,000 inhabitants in the city, most of whom are Berber ethnic. It is one of the poorest regions in the country and you will probably encounter begging children who are accustomed to regular income from the pockets of tourists while staying in the area.
Morocco, Merzouga – Staying Over Night in Desert
In relation to Morocco, everyone will surely recall, besides local colored ceramics, clay architecture, tajines (long swaths) and long caftans, the orange-colored Moroccan part of the Sahara. It is an element so typical for this country that it is almost unbelievable that desert dunes only spread to a small percentage of otherwise vast land. The largest and most famous dune is undoubtedly Erg Chebbi.
Tunisia, Sahara – To the Desert
Anyone who thinks that the Sahara is just a sandy plain is wrong. I also saw this for myself during my visit to Tunisia. The largest part of the Sahara is rocky, the sandy part is the smaller one. It is good to think about safety and use the services of a professional guide.
Tunisia - A Country Rich In Experiences and a Paradise for Filmmakers
Tunisia is not just beaches and all inclusive stays, there are countless amazing places. If you arrive in Tunisia on the mainland, it would be a shame to miss a trip to the Sahara and be able to spend the night in the desert.
Morocco, Ait Ben Haddou – Ksar in the Ounila Valley
Undoubtedly, Morocco is one of the most diverse countries, mainly because of its size. The nature of the landscape changes significantly with kilometers traveled, so in a few days in one country you can get from the Atlantic coast through the Atlas Mountains to the vast palms, gorges and also the desert.
Morocco, Casablanca – A Journey to the African Coastline of the Atlantic II
Before we go together to explore other Casablanca monuments, we will introduce you to urban culture.
Algeria, Algiers: Fusion of European and Islamic Architecture
The original Arab name of the Algerian capital means Islands. It refers to four islands by the Algerian shore, which later became part of mainland.
Morocco, Casablanca – Pompous Mosque and Art Deco
We travel to the north from Senegal to northwestern part of African continent. Our destination is Morocco, the country which covers around half-a-million square kilometers and where live 33 million people.
Morocco: African Kingdom
This time we leave Europe to visit Africa, Morocco (the Kingdom of Morocco) to be precise. 32 million people live in this country in the north of Africa. It is a beloved sea resort where also many landmarks are located.
Morocco: The Magic of the Orient II – Streets in Fez
When traveling from Fez, we travel across Meknen plain dubbed the Garden of Morocco. All you can think of grow here – melons, bananas, oranges, lemons, almonds, and grain.
Morocco: The Magic of the Orient III – Fez, Meknes and Marakesh
In the second part of Fez, we take a look at the Blue Gate which is green from the other side for it is the color of Islam and blue is the color of Fez. There is a lots of vegetables, nuts, dates, and chickens around.
Morocco: The Magic of the Orient IV – Marrakesh and Essaouira
We spend this day in Marakesh. In the morning, we enter Agdal, gardens founded by the Berber dynasty of Almohad in the 12th century. They constructed here a network of water reservoirs and canals. This is the most advanced water reservoir in Maghreb. Thanks to this reservoir, there is a large olive tree garden around it. We approach the large reservoir filled with water. In the background, we see the High Atlas with its snow caped mountains. High palmas around us only add to this incredible place.
Morocco, Rabat – The City of Lights I
You have already had a chance to see Morocco, specifically Rabat, with us. Today, however, we dive deep into this interesting city and escape the winter that prevails with us.
Morocco, Rabat – The City of Lights II
In the previous article on Rabat we told you about the history and architectural heritage of this city. Today we will be interested in local culture.
Morocco, Casablanca – A Trip to African Coast of the Atlantic I
The sun barely rises above the horizon, and Casablanca is awake. Red taxi cabs drive in the streets lined with modern buildings. You feel an incredible amount of energy around you, which, of course, overflows with you. It just lives in Casablanca.
Tunisia– Thourgh North Following History
This time we will head to the north of Tunisia, where we will be greeted by architecture with Moorish elements, friendly inhabitants and, most importantly, infinitely long beaches. But we plan to explore Tunisia a little more than just from a beach chair.
