Namibia

Situated between the Kalahari and the South Atlantic, Namibia has a huge potential as one of the youngest countries in Africa. Besides having an amazing diversity of cultures and national origins, Namibia is a photographer’s dream – which features wild landscapes, rugged mountains, deserts solitary, impressive wildlife, colonial cities and room for maneuver is limited practically illegal.

A predominantly arid country, Namibia can be divided into four main topographical regions: the Namib Desert and the coastal plains in the west, the central plateau to the east, sloping, the Kalahari border with South Africa and Botswana and savannah woodland of the Kavango and Caprivi. Despite its harsh climate, Namibia has some of the largest national parks in the world, ranging from wildlife-rich Etosha National Park in northwestern Namibia, in the dunes and desert plains of the Namib -Naukluft west of Namibia. Windhoek, in the Central Highlands, is the country’s geographical heart and nerve center of trade, with an ethnic mix of people, while surfers and beach lovers will not want to lose Swakopmund.

Namibia is one of those dream places that ask the question whether something so visually orgasmic could actually exist. Time and space are less suitable here. Landscapes collide. The experiences accumulate. View a lion stalking its prey in Etosha endless plain. Fly a giant dune on a sand board. Spend a night alone in the desert under a sky full of stars that can not differentiate between the constellations.

This large park protects 114 species of mammals and 340 species of birds, 16 reptiles and amphibians, one fish species and countless insects.

Hungary

No place like Hungary (Magyarország). Located in the heart of Europe, this kidney-shaped country can claim a unique place in the soul of the continent. Those who doubt this should listen to the music of Franz Liszt and Béla Bartók, see the romantic Danube River and dramatically divides Budapest into two or taste of the nation unique (and paprika-infused) cuisine to convince. The impact of Hungary in Europe’s history and development has been much greater than its current size and population would suggest. The Hungarians, who call themselves Magyars, speak a language and form a culture unlike any other in the region – a distinction that has been a source of pride and an obstacle to more than 1100 years.

Hungary is the best place to go into both Central and Eastern Europe. While some of its neighbors can have a spectacular landscape or monuments oldest and most important, Hungary abounds in things to see and do, and those with special interests – fishing, horseback riding, botany, bird watching, biking, hot springs , Jewish culture – is a treasure here. Under the former communist regime, most of the orientation of the government and the money went to Budapest. As a result, foreign visitors rarely ventured beyond this splendid city to the river Danube, except on a day trip to the Danube Bend or Lake Balaton. These sites should be visited, of course, but do not ignore other cities and regions off the beaten track: the Vilagut Tanya (the farm in the world) of the South Flat, ethnically rich northeastern Hungary, the hills south of Transdanubia covered Villány vineyards and traditional Őrségi region in the far west.

The 90 star was not a time for the republic reborn. Its economic development was in limbo and the serious economic problems that affected all aspects of daily life. Fortunately, these days have passed and many are now Hungary, with his intelligent and hardworking people, and rich and vibrant culture, as the star performer and the most interesting destination in the new Europe.

It is a perfect place to relax during the summer, the beaches and flooded forests full of banks, and the city itself gets a good balance between rest and activity. It is also famous for its fish soup, a local blend of carp, pike perch, catfish and ubiquitous species paprika.

Morocco

For many travelers, Morocco could be a short hop by ferry or by one of the low cost airlines myriad of Spain, but is a much further distance to travel culturally. The regular certainties of Europe suddenly swept away by the arrival in full technicolor Africa and Islam. It’s a complete sensory overload.

Tangier, which faded libertine on the coast, has traditionally been a first port of call, but the winds quickly blow along the Atlantic coast in the cosmopolitan and famous movie star in Casablanca, and white gems of fishing ports of Asalih and Essaouira. Inside, the great imperial cities of Fez, Marrakech and attract visitors en masse as they have for centuries. The streets of the ancient medinas have plenty of surprises around every corner to fill a dozen repeated trips. Far from the urban pace, you will find Roman ruins and steep valleys to distract drastically.

If you really want to get away from everything, Morocco still has a few trump cards. The High Atlas Mountains seems tailor-made for hiking boots, with endless trails between Berber villages, and the highest peak in North Africa (Jebel Toubkal) to the conquest. Or if you prefer someone else to do the walking, you just have to hold your camel and walk straight in the Sahara, to see the sunset over an ocean of sand.

Egypt

The land that gave birth to the first great civilization needs no introduction. The pyramids, minarets, the Nile – Egypt’s scope is magnificent.

Upstream Luxor, the site of ancient Thebes, is aligned with the labyrinths of burial chambers opulent and boasts some of the most imposing monuments of all antiquity. Further south of Aswan, even more impressive temples geometrically write a testimony to the power of gods and pharaohs archaic omnipotent. This is where the Nile is best explored on ancient sailing in a felucca (Egyptian sailboat) at the hands of the currents and prevailing winds.

To the west, the ocean of sand of Egypt extends infinitely in the Sahara, with a handful of isolated islands oasis of green power. Hivelike medieval fortresses, shrink here, interspersed with fountains and bubbles ghostly rock formations. Meanwhile, deep, clear waters of the Red Sea are awash in bright coral, surrounded by a frenzy of underwater aquatic life.

Although one of the most politically stable countries in the region, Egypt today is not without conflict. Thirty years of authoritarian rule, a shadow economy and rising cost of living fan the flames of social discontent. However, the Egyptians are a tough lot, and visitors make the trip here is ancient history until modern hospitality.
