Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, sits near the North Island’s southernmost point on the Cook Strait.

A compact city, it encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbor and colorful timber houses on surrounding hills.

The world’s most exciting town square, Djmaa el Fna reminds you’re in Africa. In the heart of the old city of Marrakech, snake-charmers, henna-painters, story-tellers, date-sellers and orange juice vendors set up their stalls in the sleepy heat of the afternoon. How about the Sossusvlei Dunes in Namibia? These dunes have developed over millions of years, the result of material flowing from the Orange River into the Atlantic, carried north and returned again to land by the surf. Climbing the dunes yields breathtaking views, including the Deadvlei, a ghostly expanse of dried white clay punctuated by skeletons of ancient camelthorn trees. Better yet, how about a close encounter with the mountain gorillas of the Rwandan rain forest? Africa has so much to offer… Come see why!
