Algeria travel guide

Algeria the White
The largest country on the continent, Algeria combines diverse landscapes with cultural intrigue and history. The north of the country has always been the most developed area, with the majority of the population living in cities along the Mediterranean coast. Roman ruins, modern and colonial architecture, renowned museums, and impressive coastal areas in the north represent some of the highlights of a vacation in Algeria. Heading south, the Sahara Desert takes hold. The dunes and nomadic tribes crossing the landscape offer a dreamier, less scripted counterpoint to the urbane north.

Center of the World
The island nation of Sao Tome and Principe encompasses a volcanic chain that gives it its distinctive topography. The beaches that ring the islands remain some of the main places to visit in Sao Tome and Principe, with many hidden, deserted strips of sandy coastline serving as perfect getaways for those looking to escape the everyday grind. Much of the nation remains unexplored by tourists and undeveloped, making the lush rainforests and volcanic peaks of the interior particularly atmospheric hiking destinations. The laidback Creole culture of the main towns won't take too long to get used to, but it might take a little longer to get shake off after you return home.

Gabon travel guide

Beaches · Architectural Buildings · Shopping
Though tourism in Gabon remains a fledgling industry, the benefits of exploring this untempered place of wildlife-rich rainforests and ethnic diversity are numerous. A large percentage of the country remains protected as national parkland, allowing the dolphins playing in the Atlantic and the chimps and forest elephants to breathe a sigh of relief. The population includes around 40 different ethnicities, but the country has thankfully avoided the conflict and ethnic violence common among many of its neighbors.

Republic of the Congo travel guide

Architectural Buildings · Beaches · Museums
Most citizens of the Republic of the Congo live in the south of the country, with few residing outside the capital Brazzaville or Pointe-Noire on the coast. The capital represents a good place to start a holiday in the Republic of the Congo--it's a great jump-off point for voyages down the Congo River, the long and winding waterway that separates the country from its similarly named neighbor. Following the river to the north, the country becomes sparsely populated, with much of the area covered in lush rainforests. Two national parks, one in the far north and one in the center, represent the main focal points of the Republic of Congo itineraries, with a chance to spot lowland gorillas and forest elephants a major reason to visit for any genuine nature lover.
