I have my last day in Tunis, but my flight will depart from Tunis at 15.35, so can I have a-few-hour visit in Dougga (depart from Tunis by louage then taxt and must come back to Tunis city center around 12.30 before heading to the airport)?
One more question, on my first day, I will arrive Tunis about noon (12.00), so is the rest of the day enough to visit all tourist attractions in Tunis such as medina, museum, etc (not including surburb like carthage or sidi bou said which I plan to go on the next day)?
I'm considering going on to Reunion Island from Mauritius, for 4 nights in early June, and would appreciate your kind advice on the following:-
1) Local currency used? Foreign currency accepted?
2) Accommodation you would recommend - any star but safe, friendly and comfortable for a solo mature female traveler.
3) Transfer from airport to accommodation - how do I get there?
4) Things you would recommend I do? Moderate activity.
5) Can I get by with a minimum of basic French and will locals speak to me in English if I ask (in French) if they can speak English ?
6) Any local VTer I could meet?
7) Any other advice you deem useful to a solo female traveler.
Thank you! :-)

What is the best way to covert dollars to cedis at a Barclay's Bank in Ghana? Do they have a foreign transaction fee? Cash advance fee?

We are travelling to Zanzibar for 7 days and spending our first two nights in Stone Town. My husband thinks we should rather spend our last two days in Stone Town. any recommendations/advise? Should we change our travel plans?
What EXACTLY needs to be done to go from one country to the other in order to get back into S. Africa?
- Where/how hard is it to get visas? Do you need visas for both countries? Can we get these ahead of time or do you get them in the airport?
- Yellow Fever Shot: Can you get before even coming to Africa (I know it needs to be within 10 days). We will be coming from Munich straight to Victoria Falls and only staying there for 1 day. If we get the shots in Munich and have the certificates, will this be ok?
- How long does it take to get from one side to the other and what is the best method of transportation and costs?
I just need someone to go to Luxor with, as my husband doesn't want me to go alone. We went in Jan. so he imagines the hassle I may get. So I need someone that wants to do their own thing like I want to, and just meet up for major stuff and to have someone as a source of help. I have Egyptian friends there and I know I will be fine, but it will reassure my husband if I get a travel partner. I'm interested in June. I'm not talking about sharing a hotel room.
I just heard about tuk tuks being introduced in J'burg recently. Has anyone used them? Do they have meters by which we know how much to pay?
We were planning on taking the hop on and hop off buses, but after that tour we want to get to Montecasino, would it be sensible to hire a tuk tuk to and from Montecasino?
Hey! we are a family of 7 age 17-55 travelling to Morocco October. we have 9 days, landing and departing from Casablanca and our limitation is that on the nights of day 3,4,5,6 we have to sleep in Marrakesh since one of us is attending a conference there (the rest are free to do one-day tours from day 4 and on)
we are looking for a cool and adventurous trip with nature, history an culture.
This is an offer we got from a travel guide -- i would love to hear recommendations and comments from people who have been to Morocco recently about this plan..
thank you!!! / Uri
Day 1 Arrive in Casablanca airport drive straight to Rabat for brief visit of the Hassan Tower and the Mausoleum of Mohamed V and then on to Fez for dinner and overnight.
Day 2 A full day today to visit the oldest Imperial city in Morocco with the oldest university in the world. Our day begins in the old Medina with Fez El Bali - old Fez - the
Andalusian and the Karaouine quarter with its dyers and tanners and artisans working in the style of their forefathers.
As the day progresses we take in the Mellah - the Jewish quarter, with its old cemetery and the Royal Palace. A fascinating day finishing back in the hotel for overnight and the possibility to eat dinner out..
Day 3 Drive South to Marrakech via Beni Mellal. A scenic route taking us through some of the prettiest scenery of the Middle Atlas. Check in to our Marrakech hotel for dinner and overnight.
Day 4 Morning tour of Marrakech taking in the historical sites and then afternoon free maybe to visit the Souks and the fabulous Djemma El Fna Square with its’ fortune tellers, dancers, snake charmers and water sellers. This square really is the heart of Marrakech. You will have time to wander around or just sit in one of the roof top cafes surrounding the square. Sit and enjoy this incredible picture postcard – a living theatre with the Atlas mountains as a backdrop before returning to our hotel for overnight. Or maybe take a Caleche (Horse drawn carriage) and visit the Majorelles Gardens made famous by Yves St. Laurent. Dinner can be taken outside.
Day 5 An early start today for Essaouuira, once known as Mogador. The "Purple Islands" off the coast were used by the Romans for the dying of their togas and we explore the old Medina little changed since its Portuguese occupants left; Back to Marrakech for overnight stay. Dinner again can be taken outside.
Day 6 Free day today or maybe a High Atlas adventure with jeeps and mules and some of the most spectacular scenery in Morocco with views over Mount Toubkal. Back to Marrakech and overnight with dinner outside.
Day 7 and 8 Leave for the South via Ouarzazate with its Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah made famous in many Hollywood films finally ending the day in Zagora and ultimately th Sahara Desert. Overnight with dinner in tents. Breakfast early the next morning to see the sunrise over the dunes and then set off for the return to Marrakech where we take dinner and overnight.
Day 9 Depending on the flight time leave for Casablanca airport
I'll be on my honeymoon trip to Mauritius for 9 days. I've booked Tarisa Resort hotel (in Trou aux Biches) on half board basis. I need an estimate for 9 days lunch for 2 people in a decent hotel. The honeymoon package also includes 3-day tours. Apart from those, we will be taking 1 or 2 optional paid tours (visit to an island and watersport maybe). How much money in Mauritian Rupees should I carry? Please advise.
We are a group of friends planning a road trip from cape town through africa to the UK with a kombi.
The reason why we are using a Kombi is so that we will have enough space and we want to fit a Toyota motor in the bus.-which Toyota motor would you guys suggest and is there enough spares available in African countries?
We don't have much time so we want to cover as much road as possible in a short amount of time.
We have done a southern africa trip with a fiat strada and covered 10000km,s in 18 days and want to go big this time.
Our concern is that do we need medical certificates,visas for some countries, which road would be the best to take and the safest so that we wont get stuck in mud and can we get pre-treatment for diseases such as Malaria?
Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated.
I have been interested in taking a trip to São Tomé. I've thought about it allot and due to the small amount of airlines flying from lisbon it's worth it to stay a week there I guess
But anyway I was wondering if anyone would know some budget accommodation in the capital for under let's say 30 euros.
If my flight lands in São Tomé on Friday and leaves the next Friday that's about 7 days in paid accomodation but if I took Tap on Friday than stp on tues that's only a few days worth
I am taking my 9 year old for a safari trip this July. Did quote some tour companies and they are all pretty expensive and ask significant amount of deposits.
Can we just fly there and find a reputable company at the spot instead? I am figuring it may give me more flexibility and maybe the price could be cheaper.... Our schedule is not very tight, by the way.
Any advise if you have done this before? Thanks!
does anyone know if the planned water park for may 2013 is finished and open
I am looking for accomodation for 13 people in Rabat and Erfoud. (6 dbls and one single)
We are interested mostly in cheaper but clean Riads.
Please advise if you can recommend some riads?
(which have at least 7 rooms. )

Depending on your responses, I would like to go to Africa next year. The focus will be:
1. Best place and time of year to see the big five, specific the Cats,
2. As this is likely to be a one - time thing, I would like to include Vic falls.
3. Accommodation: I'll consider anything with it's own Shower and Toilet
I'm thinking 10 days. Again happy for your views on this.
Thanks in advance
What should we expect to pay for a 3 or 4 day basic tour (including a camel trek and an overnight stay in the desert) from Fez to Marrakesh for 2 people? Can you share any recommended tour companies or contacts?
Will be in Dakar for a few months and then thinking about visiting a friend in Spain. Does it make more sense to fly directly from Dakar to Grenada? or fly to Morocco and take the ferry to Spain? trying to save as much money as I can!!

How to calculate how much Rand needed for 20 days for food etc when on a tour
Has anyone had safety trouble while on tours
I have lived here for many years and have a villa and a flat here. I lve here about 7 months of the year. I am aged 70 and in reasonable health, but with some pre existing conditions (high blood pressure for which I am on medication and some other (small) things . I am British and do not have medical insurance because the cost would be prohibitive and the insurance company would never pay up anyway. I have had to seek medical help on a couple of occasions. Once when i cut my leg and the other time for a small infection (from sea water) in my ear
I went to El Gouna Hospital and initially they wanted to charge me 50 Euros for a consultation only. When I showed my villa contract to them , the cost was promptly reduced to 60LE
Can anyone advise me authoritatively about sat (God forbid), if i had a heart attack or suffered a broken leg and had to be carted off to hospital. Are the fees they charge discretionary? Would I have to sign something or produce my bank card for a swingeing payment to be made before I would be stabilised ?
Is there an insurance scheme in this country which is fairly honest, reliable and not cost prohibitive or can one pay into a hospital scheme where accidents and emergencies are covered?
My wife and I will be in Tarifa next week. We plan to take a ferry to Tangiers then make our way to Fez. What mode of travel would you recommend from Tangiers to Fez, train or bus? Any suggestion on economical accommodation in Fez.
