Safaris Visiting Egypt

safaris vsiting Egypt Abu SimbelThe Pyramids, Abu Simbel, the Temples of Luxor and Karnak, Cairo, the Nile… ancient and eternal yet bustling and modern, Egypt is an intriguing enigma! On our safaris visiting Egypt, you can cruise the Nile, journey with your private Egyptologist guide in Cairo, explore the ancient wonders of the world, staying in historically rich cities along the Nile like Luxor, Aswan, and Alexandria and awe-inspiring Abu Simbel.

Egypt is probably the world’s oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 5,100 years ago, but today Egypt is much more than its Pyramids and monuments. Egypt, indeed, offers wonderful things for the inquisitive visitor. From the moment one steps onto the busy streets of Cairo, five senses are overwhelmed by the sheer exotic. Exploration in this city of contrasts includes the fabulous pyramids and Sphinx, the Citadel, Sultan Hassan Mosque, the old town bazaars and, finally, the delightful Cairo Museum with its intriguing Mummies Room.  Egypt is also Red Sea scuba diving, hot night spots, luxury hotels and five star restaurants.

safaris visiting Egypt Nile River AswanNile cruise ships offer the best way to explore the temples built on its shores. Each day you disembark with an Egyptologist, discovering the secrets of ancient Egypt: Luxor, Karnak, Valley of the Kings, Edfu and Philae.

At the end of this odyssey in Aswan, red rich soil and blowing sands spill down to the rivers edge, where feluccas hoist their white sails.  A rewarding end to an epic journey is spent admiring the sites of Aswan, including the Unfinished Obelisk and a boat ride to the see the Philae Temple of Isis now on the romantic Island of Agilika.  These romantic cruises down the Nile on festive river boats are a distinctly Egyptian cultural experience. Egypt is a land bustling with life, sound, visual beauty and excitement. It links two continents, stretching across the north-eastern corner of Africa and the south-western edge of Asia, with a culture that is both ancient and modern.  Experience it all for yourself on our safaris visiting Egypt.
