Welcome to Libya

Libya is one of the countries found in the northern part of Africa. It is bordered in the east by Egypt and to the southeast by Sudan. Libya is also bordered by chad and Niger to the south. It is one of the greatest North African destinations. Its main appealing factor is primarily derived from the ancient civilization, as it was the centre of several ancient activities.

This civilization led to the great Greek and Roman ruins that are in existence even up to date. The Historical sites that were left at the Libyan coast hold great potential as far as tourism is concerned. Although, the country may be located on the dessert part of the African continent, it stands out as a tourist destination with its astounding natural and ancient features that stretch out from the coast to the main land.

The Sahara desert offers Libya with exclusive desert features ranging from the spectacular sand dunes to the green oases which stand out on the extended desert. It is the best place to get a feel of the Sahara desert. Libya offers exclusive massifs adorned with prehistoric artistic art clearly displayed. The sand seas found in Libya are quite amazing.

The infrastructure of this country is unbelievable and the people of Libya will welcome you in the best way possible. Although some time back in 2012 Libya had experienced some political instability but the country has rebuilt itself magnificently to become one of the outstanding tourist destination in Africa.
