Africa & Middle East

Africa and Middle East Travel Guide

Antarctica aside, Africa and the Middle East is the last frontier. Its tracks are less travelled than those in more touristy regions and, providing you avoid the region’s luxury resorts, its infrastructure is more basic too. Yet, like a fine South African wine it has the perfect blend: mind-blowing landscapes, spirited people, unforgettable beaches and infinitely varied wildlife, all spread out across the continent. For the independent traveller, there’s nowhere else like it.
