Visit the Pyramids
The Great Pyramid of Giza and the rest of the Giza complex should definitely be on everyone’s bucket list for places to visit before you die. There are a lot of wonderful things you need to know about this magical place, and the pyramids are the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Indeed, there are so many amazing safari experiences to be had right across Africa, it’s just a case of choosing the best.
