If you are a movie lover, there are some great movies with unforgettable sceneries. Examples of which are Lord of the Rings that were shot in New Zealand. This is one of the top grossing movies of all time. Even if high tech software allowed movie makers to just in the studio, nothing beats shooting the movie in real places. The destinations here are focused in North Africa. After all, the place is noted with great filming sites including the sand beaches and the new buildings found in the Mediterranean. Here are some lists which you may want to see and examine for these film attractions and locations.

Let us begin with the Mahdia where the English Patient film was shot. They also include the Tunisia there because the place is considered to be a small oasis and the shifting sands of the place are truly worth capturing. You can create a great scene to portray it here. Next is where the film of Life of Brian was held. They took scenes from different areas and towns. Aside from that, they also included the Kasbah of Sousse. This makes the film one of the best and controversial because of the parts that includes deadly Pythons in the scene. The footage of the character is great as well.

Next, the great epic story that was filmed in Egypt was Cleopatra. Even if you may not remember the whole story, the scenes of the movie which were shot from desert sands to other parts appears classic. The middle kingdom looks so great. Another in our top ten lists is the place from Luxor right through the Giza. Have you watched the Death on the Nile film? The movie is surely fascinating because it shows great Egyptian sights. If you want a great exotic place then Morocco is the place to be. This is considered to be another great place for filming. Even the great action film Black Hawk Down took its place here. Rabbat and Kenitra Airbase were also places to enjoy. The film was mainly shot in these airbases. In North Africa, the place called Ouarzazate is surely worth a tour. It is rich in culture and history. You will enjoy the scene for film production too.

Another spot to include in our list is the interesting place of Sousse where the Raiders of the Lost Ark were shot. Not to mention that another perfect place to shoot is the rocky crags and then the sweeping sands of North Africa to be more particular. Even Star Wars occurred there. Lastly, we have the Americain Rick’s Cafe. The style of the bar has a great set and you can actually see it for yourself as you visit North Africa for your next holiday.
