Morocco and Tunisia: Essentials of a North Africa Holiday
Morocco is the gateway to the continent of Africa and only a short flight away from Spain, Italy, or France. Few countries serve as a better introduction to Africa, so if you’re looking to deep-dive into this massive continent, Morocco is a great place to start. However, Morocco is not just a stopover destination. It has a lot of cultural and geographic diversity, making it a worthwhile place to explore all on its own.
Long seen as an exotic getaway, Morocco has lost little of its allure over the centuries. Mountains loom in the country’s north, the vast Sahara Desert stretches across the south, and the Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline runs along the nation’s western and northern flank. There are several spots in the country where you could spend the majority of a trip, so you should be happy wherever you end up here. However, to enjoy the essential Moroccan experience, you ought to try for a combination of historical capitals, mountains, deserts, and beaches.
Like so many of the nations in North Africa, Tunisia has many parent cultures. Originally home to the Berbers, the nation came to prominence under the Moors until it fell under European colonial control in the 19th century. Today, Tunisia is firmly a member of the Arab world, but it retains its pre-Islamic, Mediterranean, and European influences.
