Short Breaks for Families in Africa and the Middle East

While Africa and the Middle East aren't generally considered short-break destinations, especially with kids, there are a few destinations in this region worth considering with kids, particularly teens. They include Marrakech and other parts of Morocco, less than four-hour flight from the UK, and Dubai, which, though seven hours from the UK, is worth considering for a five-day break, especially as a stopover or as part of a longer two-centre holiday.
