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 travellers 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 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 legendary Pyramids of Giza the Sphinx, 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. 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 or snorkelling; intrepid folk can make their way to the Blue Lagoon to camp on the wild beach sands under an impeccable Egyptian star-scape.
