Discover Egypt 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.
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. Painstakingly relocated during the construction of the Aswan High Dam, the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel were originally built by Ramses II to intimidate Egypt's southern neighbours with their imposing facades.
Once the lifeblood of an ancient civilisation, cruise the iconic Nile on a traditional felucca and spend a night sleeping on deck under the stars.
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.
With such iconic sights as the Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx to explore, Cairo offers a visual masterclass of ancient Egyptian architecture.
The holy site where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments, the summit of Mt Sinai provides glorious views of the surrounding desert.
Set on a magical stretch of the Red Sea, our beach camp is a hidden gem of fine golden sand and beautiful underwater reefs.
By far the largest city in Africa, Cairo is a bustling metropolis with an abundance of noise and energy in its streets and markets.
