Hiking in Lesotho

Mountainous Lesotho is a hiker’s paradise. It is the highest country in the world, and with over 700 peaks it can be hard to choose which to tackle. The Sani Pass, which borders KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa is so notoriously difficult, most tour operators recommend taking a jeep to the top, where you can then meander on foot.

Mokhotlong, and Sehlabathebe National Park, are also favourites. Maps are essential and can be purchased in Lesotho’s capital, Maseru. If you want to take time to savour memories, give yourself three or four days to explore each mountain and the towns around them.

Surf in Pointe-Noire

Pointe-Noire is the second city of the Republic of the Congo and a major sea port and tourist destination. It’s a paradise for surfers and bodyboard
enthusiasts, but not for the faint-hearted or the inexperienced: the sea can be quite wild at times. Pointe Kounda and Côte Sauvage are two of the most popular beaches, but, if you have the chance, head to Kouilou – less than an hour’s drive out of town – to surf the waves of M’Vassa.

 

Cultural heritage in Khartoum

One of Khartoum’s most enchanting beauties is the meeting of the White Nile and Blue Nile at the heart of the city before it tumbles forth towards Egypt. Sudan’s capital is vibrant. The sounds, the creativity and the traffic jams make this place one of the kind. Take time to walk around the streets and snap photos of the curvy Corinthia Hotel, the city landscape, the GNPOC Tower and Masjid Al-Nilin mosque.
