If you're a traveller looking for an African adventure a little closer to home, why not visit Morocco?
Jamal El Jaidi, events and promotions manager at the Moroccan National Tourist Office, enthuses about the country, saying that at just three hours from the UK it is the perfect place for people looking to experience a completely different culture to explore.
"It is the closest African destination to Europe, so everything is different - the landscape, the culture," he comments.
He also notes that it is a particularly safe destination and that there are plenty of diverse attractions for visitors to enjoy, such as the Atlas Mountains.
Touring cities is also a great way to learn more about the country, he claims, with Marrakech, Fez and Meknez being among those he recommends.
Matt Phillips, editor of travelmag.com, suggests that Marrakech can be an "intoxicating" place to visit, with its exciting markets and winding alleyways.
