It’s a continent that I have never visited. And eagerly looking forward to doing so someday…
Egypt: I would start my North Africa visit with the country with one of the oldest civilisations in the World. Of course, it will be great to visit the Pyramids of Giza. But I would be just as excited to visit the ancient monuments along the banks of the Nile at places such as Luxor, Edfu and Aswan. I am also curious to see Alexandria – pictures reveal a city with similarities to my home town – Mumbai.
Tunisia: Another country with links to ancient Rome. Tunis, Carthage, El Jem and Dougga would be the places on my itinerary here.
Algeria: I must confess that this country, the largest in Africa, was not originally on my list of countries to visit. But a casual online read has piqued my curiosity sufficiently enough to add it to my list. Algiers, Oran and Constantine look like interesting places to visit. I would also like to experience Tamanrasset in the far south.
Morocco: Marrakesh, Fes, Casablanca, Tangier – the places in Morocco roll of the tongue conjuring images of the exotic. A country that I would love to visit!
