If you’re travelling between Rabat and Fes, Meknes and Volubilis are great pit-stops on your journey. Meknes is one of Morocco’s Imperial Cities, surrounded by 40km of defensive walls and grand gateways, and makes for an interesting detour.
Casablanca is a bustling port city in Morocco, and the most cosmopolitan as well. Often mistakenly believed to be the country’s capital, it’s actually only the economic centre. While it doesn’t have the historic landmarks and vibe of other imperial cities, and doesn’t have many tourist attractions, it is not without value. See below for the top things to do when you visit.
Cozumel was the port we were most excited about visiting, after reading tons of articles, blogs, and reviews, about how amazing the underwater scenery is. It was the whole reason we did our Open Water Diver Qualifications in the first place! But unfortunately, rough seas resulted in all the water based activities being cancelled on our port day, so it’s still a mystery to us. We do hope to return someday to explore what lies beneath. Read on to find out what we did instead!
About two and a half hours out of Johannesberg lies the delightful Pilanesberg National Park, named so after a Tswana chief. It is a lovely place for a weekend getaway, with the option of guided game drives and hot air balloon trips, alongside a variety of on-site accommodation, it’s the perfect place to get close to nature.
Below the surface of the earth’s oceans lies another whole world, just waiting to be discovered. From blooming coral reefs and jewel toned fish, to forgotten wrecks and swirling plants, the floors of the sea are full of surprises for anyone willing to venture just a little bit out of their comfort zone. The ticket to these vistas is an open water scuba diver certification, something that is offered all over the world, in cities both coastal and inland.
