Miles of sparkling coastline. Ancient sun-bleached relics and ruins. Exquisite islands, and fresh Mediterranean cuisine. Just add warm-hearted hospitality, and you'll find it hard to leave.
Few destinations compare to Egypt. Its vast wealth of antiquities and ancient artefacts make it a haven for avid history buffs. Cruising along the Nile you’ll be mesmerised by the grandeur of its pyramids and the decadence of the royal tombs and breathtaking temples.
When to go: Egypt makes for a great destination all year round. From its hot, sunny days from April through to October, to its cooler, still pleasant winters, you’ll be guaranteed pleasant weather throughout the year.
A colourful mix of Islamic, Arabic and African influences, Morocco has fascinated travellers for centuries. The bright labyrinths of its imperial cities contrast with the dramatic gorges and oases of the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains and the solitude of the Saharan Desert that lies beyond.
When to go: For the warmest weather head to Morocco between March and November, or for cooler temperatures and less crowds opt to travel there December-February.
