Ancient pyramids, sparkling oceans and a powerful history await

Welcome to Egypt; land of ancient cities, famous architecture, sweeping rivers and sparkling oceans that charms visitors of all ages and interests. There’s a reason that travelers are obsessed with the golden sands and intruiging mysteries of this unique North-African country; it offers an unparalleled cultural experience that will stay with you long after you’ve landed back in the comfort of your home.

A stay in Cairo, the country’s capital, will offer you the chance to explore Egypt biggest city. Relax in one of many exquisite five-star hotels or don your sunhat and wander the old, medieval quarters of the city to find alleys with spice-filled markets, bazaars, mosques, and tradespeople.

A little beyond the city you’ll find the iconic Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx; the oldest and largest statue in the world and the house of mummification at the Valley temple.

Undoubtedly our favourite way to explore the cities and sights along the Nile River is by luxury cruise liner to discover incredible ancient places like Luxor; the city of a hundred doors. Here, in an area of 417 square kilometres, lie some of the most majestic temples, such as the Valley of the Kings where the legendary Tutankhamun lies and the Queen Hatshepsut Temple.

If it’s sandy beaches, relaxation, and colourful coral reefs you seek then you won’t be disappointed. Head to Almaza Bay on Egypt’s Mediterranean for luxury resorts, fine dining and crystal-clear waters. Whilst Sharm al Sheikh on the Southern reaches of the Red Sea boasts brilliant white sand beaches and resorts that are fun for all the family. Another favourite is Dahab, which lies a little further North, and offers world-class kitesurfing, snorkelling and intrepid folk can make their way to the Blue Lagoon to camp on the wild beach sands under an impeccable Egyptian star-scape.

Best times to visit Egypt

Egypt has an imposing Summer that drives temperatures over forty degrees Celsius in the middle of the day between May and September. Those that don’t mind the heat though will enjoy fewer crowds, air-conditioning in luxury hotels and a deeper appreciation for the cool breeze that drifts off the Nile.

To avoid the heat, travel between October and April. The cooler weather makes for more pleasant meandering along the city streets and visits into the desert. There is an influx of tourists over the festive season so be prepared to pay additional fees if you travel in December and early January and whilst Egypt is an extremely dry country rain that falls along the coast does so in December and January.

The shoulder seasons of March/April and October/November are arguably the best time to visit Egypt as you can enjoy milder temperature, almost no rain and fewer tourists. However, it’s also worth noting that Egypt is a largely Islamic country and Ramadan falls in April/May so traveling at this time could result in some disruption to your travels.
