Aleppo City Tour
When you are dealing with a city over 4000 years old (inhabited) there is only so much you can see in one day. However a guided city tour is the best way to cover as many bases as possible.
Properous Aleppo sat at the end of the 'Silk Road' which had already passed through central Asia and Mesopotamia on its way towards the Med Coast. After the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 Aleppo began its slow decline accelerated by the fall of the Ottoman empire (1940's) which isolated Syria further when it lost it's access to the sea.
Fortunately this probably saved the ruin of the more ancient parts of the city and today Aleppo is successfully maintaining and restoring it historic quarters.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
