Africa safaris: The new luxury travel destination
The World Travel Awards has highlighted Africa as the next best destination for luxury travel. Numerous accommodations and locales, from South Africa's Kruger National Park to Tanzania's Mt. Kilimanjaro, were given the nod, further solidifying the continent's unstoppable climb toward the top of the list of international destinations.
"Our winners are drawn from the breadth of Africa, reflecting how the outstanding natural attractions of the continent are being complemented with a growing portfolio of luxury facilities," said Graham E. Cooke, the president and founder of World Travel Awards.
Considered the Oscars of the travel industry, the World Travel Awards honor nations and companies that have made a valiant effort to support tourism and boost the global economy through international travel.
What to expect in Morocco
Along with stunning landscapes throughout the continent, one country stood out because of its long line of luxury accommodations. During Morocco tours, you'll have the chance to stay at numerous hotels in a nation that earned the award for "Africa's Leading Destination."
Many of the tour destinations in Morocco include culturally and historically significant areas, from the vibrant street markets of Marrakech to the Imperial cities of Rabat Fez and Meknes. Additionally, travellers can also sample some of the nation's fine cuisine in Casablanca.
While walking through the streets, you'll have countless photo opportunities as traditional Moroccan riads, or abodes, pop up throughout the city. These gorgeous buildings are typically decorated with ornate accents that date back for centuries. Although the style has changed over the years, these courtyards are still the popular meeting places for families and royal courts all over Morocco.
