We travelled in Tunisia for the first time in 2004. We were amazed by its strong cultural heritage, due to an extraordinary history and welcomed by Tunisians. Also, we liked its beautiful beaches and its desert in the south. Tunisia‘s Mediterranean weather was extraordinary, especially in the beaches. It’s sunny all the year. With these highlights, Tunisia offers to adventure travelers an interesting place for their journeys, from archaeological excursions to activities in the beaches and trekking in the Sahara desert.
We consider Ethiopia as a great power for adventure tourism in Africa, due to its beautiful nature and landscapes, and its strong heritage for which Ethiopians are very proud.
