Cairo to Khartoum SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Wonderfully chaotic and always colourful, Cairo's dazzling array of museums, mosques and markets are a fascinating mixture of modern city and ancient wonders.
Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria is packed with architectural and cultural wonders, both ancient and modern.
Situated in Egypt's Great Western Desert, Bahariya has long served as gateway between Libya and Egypt, and today it's still home to hot springs, palm groves and numerous ancient sites. The windswept dunes and bizarre rock formations of the White Desert make this one of the most amazing and beautiful landscapes on the planet.
With verdant cultivated areas and a great wall of rose-hued rock across the northern horizon, a feast for the eyes awaits at Dakhla Oasis.
El Kharga Oasis is home to many monumental sites, including the Temple of Hebes, as well as beautiful handicrafts and unspoilt springs.
From the spectacular temple complex of Karnak to the extraordinary hieroglyphs of the Valley of the Kings, Luxor is full of wonderfully preserved reminders of the Pharaohs.
Situated on the banks of the Nile, the Nubian city of Aswan has been Egypt's southern gateway to Africa and an important trading centre since ancient times.
One of the largest man-made lakes in the world, a journey through Lake Nasser's spectacular desert scenery is a unique experience. The port of Wadi Halfa is situated on the southernmost tip of Lake Nasser in the Sudanese Sahara.
The deserts of northern Sudan form a vast field of dunes, traversed by camel herds and dotted with a string of ancient temples along the River Nile.
Sitting on the junction of the Nile and Atbara rivers, Atbara is an important town in Sudan's railway network.
The ancient heart of the Nubian Kingdom, Meroe's zenith came between 592 BC and AD 350 when it flourished under an unbroken line of kings.
Sudan's fascinating capital, Khartoum is really two cities: the British colonial settlement on one side of the river and the sprawling settlements of Omdurman on the other.
