Cruises to Canary Islands/North Africa
The Canaries are a seething mass of oiled flesh, and offer some of the best beaches within easy escape from a snowy European winter. Beyond the mega resorts are tiny fishing villages, whitewashed hamlets perched on hilltops and a few wild places within earshot of the dull roar of a volcano or with mist dripping through primeval forests.
Africa's biodiversity, which ranges from Sahara desert to tropical jungle, from snow-capped volcanic Mount Kilimanjaro to the beaches of East and West Africa, may be its greatest opportunity. There is the excitement of stalking big game in African bush to the thrill of whitewater rafting through the gorges below Victoria Falls or the awe of seeing the Egyptian pyramids at sunrise. Ecotourism provides leisure complexes which take advantage of game parks, golf courses, beaches and beautiful scenery. Adrenalin junkie can raft the rapids on some of the world's biggest rivers, plunge from the highest bungee jump or climb a snow-capped volcanic peak on the equator. For the less adventurous, there are beaches along most of Africa's coastline, fabulous African golf courses, and places to sip a cocktail while watching the red African sun set over a waterhole as elephants come down to drink. Then there are those familiar African tourist attractions from Egypt's Pyramids in the North to Cape Town's Table Mountain in the South, from the mysterious markets of Timbuktu and Marrakesh in the West to the coral reefs of Zanzibar and Nosey Be in the East.
