Despite Egypt’s ongoing political and social upheaval, it remains one of the most captivating destinations on earth, and is more welcoming than ever to travellers who want to uncover the secrets of its ancient culture. The iconic history of Egypt is imprinted on every single mind throughout modern history; since Howard Carter revealed Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1921, the Pyramids and surrounding relics have been cause for many an adventurer’s pilgrimage. It’s one of the few destinations that taps into the deep yearning within us to connect with an ancient human past, and is a must-see bucket list item for many. Combined with the experience of cruising down the Nile on a Felucca, and watching the sunrise from a desert camp beneath a blanket of stars, a holiday in Egypt is a mesmerising adventure from start to finish.
