LIBYA TRAVEL GUIDE

lgbt_small.png

Libya has been demonised and its leader feared for long, though this is a country filled with interesting sights and experiences, from fabulous Roman ruins and preserved ancient cities, to vast stretches of the haunting Sahara desert and superb prehistoric rock art. The Libya that caresses the north coast of Africa is delightfully Mediterranean, with glistening citrus plantations and balmy skies. The Libyans themselves are friendly, dignified people who will welcome you to their long locked-up land with open arms.

 

Although Libya is more stable now, Libya still suffers from crime, terrorism, civil unrest, and ongoing armed conflicts in many areas. Violent extremist activity in Libya remains high, and terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, hotels, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, and local government facilities.

LIBYA WEATHER SYNOPSIS

Libya’s climate is influenced by the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Sahara desert to the south and, as a result, abrupt transitions of weather conditions are experienced across the country. The Mediterranean coastal strip experiences dry summers and relatively wet winters. The Jabal Natusah and Jabal Akhdal highlands experience a plateau climate, with higher rainfall and humidity and low winter temperatures. The northern Tripoli regions of Jabal Nafusah and Jifarah Plain and the northern Benghazi region of Jabal al Akhdar receive the highest average annual rainfall, exceeding the minimum value of 250-300 mm. Pre-desert and desert conditions, with scorching temperatures of daily thermal variations, are experienced in the southern part of the interior where rain is rare and irregular. Rainfall in Libya occurs during the winter months, with average annual rainfall of 26 mm and great variations from place to place and from year to year. Approximately 93% of the land surface receives less than 100 mm of rain per year.

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.
