North Africa

Travel guide, tips & inspiration

North Africa attracts a variety of different travellers - the history buffs to Egypt, the travel photographers to Morocco, the diving lovers to the Red Sea and the explorers to Fes or Algeria. Throw some adventure into your travel plans and head to North Africa for Saharan desert, coastline, souks bursting with colour and ancient pyramids.

When's the best time to visit North Africa?

North Africa is a year-round destination, although some periods are better than others. The best time of year to visit is between May - October as the temperature is warm but the evenings don't drop dramatically like they do in the winter. 

Our favourite destinations to visit in North Africa

travel morocco
Morocco
Mesmerising, magical, Morocco - the type of alliteration that totally makes sense. Visit and you'll find exciting pockets of local life, from the colourful tannery's and medieval streets of Fes, the glamourous and Insta-worthy Marrakech, all the way through to the surprising little village washed in vivid blue paint (aka Chefchaouen). Morocco is at the tip of North Africa, and delivers a total adventure time and time again.
travel egypt
Egypt
Get ready to be sent back in time as you wander the pyramids, tombs and temples of ancient Egypt - back to the land of the Pharaoh's, Kings and Queens. Once you're done exploring the historical side of Egypt, head to the coast which boasts some of the most impressive diving sites around, sail the River Nile, or chill in a hot spring in Siwa Oasis. 

Flights to North Africa

Unfortunately there aren't any direct flights from Australia to North Africa, and depending on the amount of stops on the way, the flight time can get pretty hefty. Not to fear though, some airlines offer stopovers where you can get two countries for the price of one plane ticket! And if not, well, you've got plenty of time to catch up on all the new films!
