Travel to the Middle East and take an active family tour of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula
Had Moses stood atop Mt Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments of Travel, ‘thou shalt visit Egypt’ would surely have been near the top of them. After all, this is the land where ancient deserts meet azure waters and dramatic, biblical landscapes serve as a fitting backdrop for cities unmoved for thousands of years. Using the ocean refuge town of Dahab as a base, embark on a camel trek to remote Bedouin communities, follow in the hoof-marks of Lawrence of Arabia on a jeep tour and cool off with a range of optional water sports activities from scuba diving to kayaking. With plenty of action and adventure for the whole family, this active tour of Egypt’s legendary Sinai Peninsula is not to be missed.
