Tour Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt on a trip from Nairobi to Cairo.

Travel to Africa and embark on a grand adventure across Africa's north-east from Nairobi to Cairo. From the rolling savanna and lush highlands of Kenya, through the Horn of Africa's deserts and mountains, to the marvels of ancient Egypt and Nubia, this is an amazing journey you won't soon forget. Along the way, encounter lively Sudanese market vendors, Ethiopian Rastafarians, friendly Nubian oasis dwellers, Kenya's proud Samburu warriors and the rarely visited tribes of the Omo Valley.

This is a memorable Overland tour through Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt.
