Egypt’s pyramids, fantastic temples and the generations of history and culture make this country on the bucket list of many travellers around the globe.
Combining the endless desert with the fertile banks of the Nile River, this country’s landscape is one to be marvelled at. The grubby yet enigmatic capital Cairo, the Pyramids of Giza and further down River Nile are the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel and Luxor dedicated to Ancient Egyptian Gods and Kigns. Nearby also lies the Valley of the Kings, the burial site of past Kings and home to the famous Tomb of Tutankhamen.
Finally, the shores of the Red Sea provide the perfect place to snorkel. It was also here that Moses led the Jews in the famous Exodus out of Egypt. The people are also very friendly and hospitable if you get a chance to mingle with them. This is Northern Africa at its finest.
