The Cape of Good Hope, the most south-western point of the African continent, is a promontory off of the southern tip of South Africa. The best thing to do here is to simply enjoy the beauty – but there are other things you can do while taking that in.
Visit the ostrich farm, explore the abundant wild nature of the area in the nature preserves and gardens, and enjoy delicious food in Cape Town. This popular excursion is often combined with one to Boulders Beach for a fun-filled day trip.
While the coastal scenery is amazing and the sights are incomparable, one of the big draws is that you can get up close and personal with African penguins. While most people are content simply watching the adults and fluffy babies, some visitors take it one step further and take a refreshing swim with the penguins.
Along with the spectacular views and animals friends, you can also hike, climb up the lighthouse at Cape Point, or go whale watching during the summer months.
The oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Giza Pyramid near Cairo was originally built as a tomb for the pharaoh in 2560 BC.
One of the great mysteries is how they were built, and what’s known is that more than two million blocks of stone were transported from various quarries to the site in order to build this imposing structure – all using skilled manual labor.
The Giza Pyramid Complex comprises several buildings and structures including the most famous, the Pyramid of Khufu, also known as the Pyramid of Cheops.
When it comes to visiting this great wonder of the world, most tourists prefer to see them on a full-day tour from Giza or Cairo. These tours often also include a Nile River cruise or stops at other sites such as Memphis, the Egyptian Museum, and the Khan El Khalili Bazaar.
Once at the pyramid site, you have a couple of options – you can explore on foot, but why not hop on the back of a camel?

Located on the border of Kenya in northern Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro trekkers and mountaineers from around the world visit this site every year.
Towering at 19,340 feet, the inactive stratovolcano towers is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. But don’t let the size fool you if you’re intimidated about taking the hike. It’s considered a relatively easy ascent, but the healthier and more fit you are, the better your chances of reaching the summit.
Considered a moorland zone, which makes for lush vegetation and plentiful rainfall, there is more to this area than just climbing. Easy hikes can lead to leopard, buffalo, baboon, bush pig, mongoose, elephant and many other wildlife sightings.
The best time to visit Mount Kilimanjaro is in January and February, which are the warmest months, and make it easier to climb. But regardless of when you go, the views are simply spectacular. Contact us to arrange your entire trip!
