Explore all that this captivating country has to offer - both its major sights and its tucked away treasures.

Itinerary

Days 1-2 Cairo

The never-ending stream of life and noise makes Cairo fascinating to explore. From here, the Sphinx and Pyramids are within easy reach.

Days 3-4 Aswan

Gracing the banks of the Nile, Aswan is a great base. Consider visiting a nearby Nubian village for a dinner of traditional delicacies and to enjoy the local swimming holes. Otherwise, a day trip to the fascinating temples of Abu Simbel is possible.

Day 5 Nile Felucca

A Nubian crew provides food and song on this traditional felucca journey down the Nile. Watch river life in action and fall asleep beneath the night sky.

Wander through the temple complex of Karnak or travel by donkey into the open-air museum that is the spectacular Valley of the Kings.

Day 8 Dakhla Oasis

Travel through the desert to an ancient oasis.

Day 9 White Desert Camp

Day 10 Bawiti

Uncover the legend of the Golden Mummies or take a soak in the mineral-rich springs.

Days 11-12 Siwa Oasis

This remote, exotic oasis is a lush paradise among the desert dunes. Explore the maze-like ruins of the mud brick fort or perhaps take a dip in Cleopatra's Bath.

Days 13-14 Alexandria
