Bob Marley: Nubian Guesthouse in Aswan, Egypt

Colorful entrance to Bob Marley Guesthouse.

Aswan offered more of a relaxed vibe, especially on Elephantine Island, which is home to many Nubian families, and some highly rated guesthouses.

Gir National Park Trip (Devaliya Safari Zone)

Lions sitting on grass.

The Devaliya Safari Park is about 412 hectares of the Gir National Park that was developed as an interpretation zone. It’s also often called the Sasan Gir Interpretation Zone. This zone allows visitors to see lions, deers, boars, and other species of wildlife without disturbing their natural habitat too much. So you don’t have to only go on the Gir Jungle Trail to see the animals in Gir National park. The Devalia Safari Park which is about 13 kilometers from Sasan Gir Village is perfect for this!
