Kenya
Mombasa
Hi, my city is Mombasa, which is located on the east coast of Kenya. My tip before you come to Mombasa is to carry light clothes, because of the hot weather. Don't forget to carry your swimsuit and your camera -- to capture those wonderful moments. And my tips for you when you are here: Don't waste any moments because your holiday may be over before you have seen what Mombasa has to offer to you. Just to mention a few: the white sandy beaches, the game parks, the historical places, the different cultures ... I'm saving the rest for you to find out for yourself!
Grace Mmunyiva; Mombasa, Kenya

Nairobi
The place to be in East Africa would be none other than Nairobi, Kenya... Don't forget to carry your sunglasses, your cool t-shirt and your camera to capture the most scintillating sights and sounds from the city in the sun. Our welcoming atmosphere to visitors would just land you in the most outstanding night spots decorated by Kenya's traditional culture and Tantalizing Kenyan Cuisine... And while you're at it carry some pocket cash and an empty suitcase for the Maasai Market to take home some of Kenya's treasured artifacts and souvenirs.

South Africa
Cape Town
My wife and I have either lived in or visited 40 countries and it's difficult to choose the top favorite. After careful thought, I plump for Cape Town, which is really beautiful. Table Mountain dominates the city and the bay and cable car ride to the top is breathtaking. On the waterfront, you are surrounded by great bars, cafes and restaurants, fun street musicians and happy people. Good eating is on the menu - try the ostrich, antelope, crocodile or shark steaks (I recommend them all!) or just stick to the superb seafood. Take a hydrofoil to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned and visit his cell; take the guided tour. Hire a car and drive to the Cape of Good Hope - spectacular and only a day's round trip. Go in February for great weather, usually about 80F and blue skies.

Tunisia
Sousse
Nice place to spend your holidays. You can go on a short trip to Tunis, the capital of Tunisia. You can bathe in the Mediterranean and have fun. Busy markets where you can buy some bargains, when you are smart. The people speak French and Arabic. But most of the dealers can speak four or more languages, like English, German and Spanish.
