Nile Cruise experience

Urban areas and small villages all float by at a relaxing pace. Kids race alongside the vessel. An angler waves’ hello as he pull in his catch for the day. Seeing everyday life from a Nile cruise is getting an alternate perception of Egypt. The reeds stand tall along the banks. Both nightfall and dawns are among the most spectacular on the planet. There is something powerful about remaining on the deck of a vessel. Watch the million shades of red and gold noting that individuals have watched the same sight for centuries. A Nile Cruise bonds you to the general population of Egypt both present and olden days in a way no other experience can duplicate.

White Desert

Shaped by hundreds of years of decaying and dust storms, the calcium expansions are like incredible imaginary statues. Some look like food items given names like “mushroom” and “frozen custard,”. Others have flashier names such as  “the Monolith” and “Inselberg.” Only in The White Desert will you experience such an odd and striking characteristic historical centre of chalk-shake.

Many travellers select to spend a night outdoors in the company of Bedouin guides. Here you can watch the changing appearances of the stone monuments as the brilliant sun of the evening sinks into a shadowy sunset. As the sun goes down, the calcium ocean appears to mirror every one of the fuchsias and oranges of the sky. Keep in mind that a night under the stars of the Western Desert is an unforgettable occasion

Egypt is so deeply ingrained in our perceptions of history, culture and civilisation that it is taken on an almost mythical quality. It is the oldest tourist destination on Earth and its pulling power shows no sign of waning. That the Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing is testament to Egypt’s timelessness.
