The bustling city of Cairo is home to 18 million and is an expansive blend of historical monuments and mud brick houses. – ‘The Great Pyramids of Giza & Sphinx’ is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. This site has become synonymous with Egypt and is one of the principal reasons for visiting the capital city and is situated west of the Nile bordering the Sahara Desert. We visit the Great Pyramid of Khufu, Pyramid Khafre and Menkaure and no visit would be complete without the photo standing next to the Great Sphinx.
While here we must not miss the world renowned Egyptian Museum which houses the enthralling exhibition of more than 100,000 antiquities, including the ‘Tomb of Tutankhamen and the Royal Mummy room’. Other highlights include the Khan el Khalili Bazaar and the Citadel, which was once home to Egypt’s rulers

Baharia Oasis & the White Dessert
Our journey out to Baharia & the White Dessert includes a visit to a Bedouin Village, Museum of the ‘Golden Mummies’, the Black dessert and ‘Crystal Mountain’. We camp over night in the white dessert enjoying the Bedouin hospitality. This is a great two days of Sand dunes, Oasis springs, history and culture all blended together.

Luxor is home to the 4,000 year old site of Thebes. Luxor effortlessly mingles ancient sites with the thriving metropolis city. Highlights include the Temples of Karnak which is the largest temple in the world (70 acres), along with the Valley of the Kings on the west back of the Nile, where tombs of the great Pharaohs lie. We visit the modern looking temple of ‘Queen Hatshepsut’s which forms a fantastic array of natural contrast against the Desert Mountains.
Aswan is a laid back affable town and Egypt’s southern most city. Attractions include the Obelisk, Aswan 3,600 metre High Dam and majestic Temple Philae. An optional 45 minute flight from Aswan are the two astounding mammoth rock temples of Abu Simbel, a Pharaohs secret until 1813 when uncovered after laying buried in sand for centuries. This is one temple that is certainly not to be missed.
We cruise the Nile on a traditional felucca which will also be our overnight accommodation
