From exploring the souks of Morocco to encountering an incredible array of wildlife on safari in Namibia or enjoying the white sand and turquoise waters of the Seychelles, Africa has something for everyone. Luckily, USA passport holders can travel to many African nations either without a visa, or in some cases can simply purchase a visa on arrival. However, the visa rules vary from country to country and can be complex.

A school group coming to South Africa met with disaster when they arrived at Heathrow on Thursday, 16 July 2015. Thirteen of the children were refused permission to fly to South Africa as they had a document without a solicitor's stamp. This created anxiety for the entire group as it meant that 2 teachers needed to stay behind with that group whilst the rest continued on their journey to South Africa with mixed emotions. What a dampener for all!

Our week away organised by All Africa Tours was a week to remember. From Robertson in the Breede River Valley to Hermanus in the Overberg, gave us a variety of experiences just a few hours outside Cape Town.
For those rainy days when your children can't be outdoors, visit the Two Oceans Aquarium and Scratch Patch / Mineral World in Cape Town. When the weather clears, pack a picnic and head to Rondevlei Nature Reserve for some bird watching or Boulders Beach to view the African Penguin. A full day sight seeing on the red tourist bus is also a must.
"Our 15th Wedding Anniversary was coming up and I was wondering what to do that would rival or compare with Paris (5th) or Rome (10th)? I wanted it to be closer to home this time and the Okavango Delta in Botswana sprang to mind," says Scott.
Liz Brash of Cape Town, South Africa says: February 2012, Sandy and I travelled to South America to participate in a 3 day trail run from Puerto Fuy in Chile to Lago Lacar in Argentina. What an awesome experience.
At the end of the day when the sun is setting, it is amazing how the stomach juices seem to wake up from their afternoon hibernation. This is especially true when you are outdoors, close to nature. Any cook worth their salt, wants to be able to whip up a tasty meal no matter where they are. Cooking outdoors is easy if you know how.
Camping under the stars, sipping an ice cold drink next to the camp fire, eating juicy chops, boerewors and salad and listening to the gentle sounds of birds and flowing water - what more could one ask for as a most relaxing holiday!
