ALGERIA TRAVEL GUIDE

lgbt_small.png

Algeria is a North African country with a Mediterranean coastline and a Saharan desert interior. Many empires have left legacies here, such as the ancient Roman ruins in seaside Tipaza. After the secession of South Sudan from Sudan, Algeria became the largest country in Africa. Recent Algerian history has been peaceful since the last war it was involved in ended in 2005.

 

Algerian tourism is best known for its ancient ruins—principally those from the Phoenician, Roman, and Byzantine eras. Some of the most famous include Timgad near Batna, Hippo Regius at Annaba, Djemila at Sétif, Calama at Guelma, and ruins from all three empires at Tipasa.

ALGERIA WEATHER SYNOPSIS

Algeria experiences two distinct climates: a Mediterranean climate in northern Algeria and a desert climate in the majority of the country. The sub-humid Mediterranean climate on the coast and in the Tell Atlas Mountains is characterised by wet and mild winters and hot and dry summers. The rest of the country is covered by the Sahara Desert, where the seasonal average winter temperature is 15°C to 28°C and 40°C to 45°C during the summer. In the north, moist winds from the sea bring rain from autumn to spring. Algeria's climate is also influenced by Sirocco winds, which cause increased temperature with dusty, dry conditions and storms in the Mediterranean Sea.

HEALTH RISKS IN ALGERIA

Be aware of possible health risks in 

Algeria

Yellow fever - The yellow fever virus is found in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America. The virus is spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. There is no medicine to treat or cure an infection. To prevent getting sick from yellow fever, use insect repellent, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and get vaccinated.

Zika Virus - Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects. There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika.

Malaria - Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a parasite that commonly infects a certain type of mosquito which feeds on humans. People who get malaria are typically very sick with high fevers, shaking chills, and flu-like illness. Although malaria can be a deadly disease, illness and death from malaria can usually be prevented.

Dengue - Dengue is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. About one in four people infected with dengue will get sick. For people who get sick with dengue, symptoms can be mild or severe.
