April 19, 2017, 1:28 pm

Morocco hogged the limelight in the annual Best African Travel Destinations by the world’s largest travel website, TripAdvisor.  Marrakech, the former Moroccan Imperial capital, was ranked the best destination on the continent by visitors to the site.

Following closely in second place was the small Moroccan town of Merzouga, lying on the fringe of Sahara Desert, close to the Algerian border. Cape Town Central in South Africa was ranked third, Fes in Morocco took fourth position while Arusha in Tanzania was rated fifth overall.

Diani resort town in Kenya took the sixth position, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe was seventh, Zanzibar Island was eighth, and Livingstone in Zambia was ninth while Nosy Be Island, off Antsiranana in Madagascar completed the list of top ten destinations on the continent.

In global rankings, Bali in Indonesia was voted the best destination in the world while London and Paris were ranked second and third best respectively. Rome took the fourth position, New York City in the United States was fifth, Crete in Greece was sixth while Spain's Barcelona was seventh overall.

The TripAdvisor's best destinations in 2017 were voted based on millions of reviews from travelers across the world. With more than 60 million members and over 170 million online reviews and opinions, the places selected for the top honors are quite a vindication on what those spots offer visitors in terms of attractions, hotels, restaurants and other related travel-related businesses.
