Thank you Omar, Khaled, Hamy & Marwa for making it an amazing Holiday for our family in Egypt.”
“First one was a private quad safari as a family of 4, 2 adults a teenager and a 9 year old which was absolutely awesome! We were picked up from our hotel in an air conditioned mini bus and were dropped at the start of our trip where we were greeted by Omar. He sat with us, chatted with the children and explained everything. He got us water, sorted our scarves, goggles and helmets for the trip and talked to us about Hurghada safari and the Red sea desert. We had a little photo shoot prior to setting off on our adventure through the desert with our additional guide Khaled who knows the dessert and the terrain so well. We had a little break and a photo half way to our destination. We arrived at the village where Omar came over with water for us, sat us down in the tent provided and chatted with us about the local village and people living there. We drank local tea but opted out of the sheesha, Omar was able to answer all our questions and had lots of banter with the children, his English was excellent. We then had out camel ride and experienced some of the local talents at the supermarket where they were making sand bottles. We headed back through the dessert where our adventure ended... we needed cooling off and lots of water which Omar sorted. We can’t recommend this trip enough...We recommend doing it privately as a family instead of a large mixed group with mixed nationalities . Omar was amazing and really looked after us! He is such an asset to the company.”
Egypt, located in North East Africa, is one of the most popular African nations. You can marvel at the ancient pyramids of Giza, learn medieval history through the mummies, or visit the plenty churches and monasteries culminating from a rich Jewish and Christian heritage like the Saint Catherine's Monastery. Many people don't know that Egypt also offers great diving opportunities for the traveler interested in aquatic activities.
Visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, that provides an ideal start when learning about some Egyptian artifacts of antiquity.
Cairo in particular offers a wide variety of coffee shops. In fact, going to one is a great way to get acquainted with some of the locals.
Check out the Cairo Tower. Why wouldn't you want to eat dinner on the top of the tallest structure in Egypt?
Enjoy the nightlife. Egypt has integrated popular current western music surprisingly well into its clubs and bars. After enjoying some Trance, you're liable to hear a few Arabic tunes as well.
Go to the Haram District that offers a great variety of outdoor adventures such as horseback rides and tours.
Take a tour through the Nile River. Going to Eastern Africa, without at least seeing the longest river in the world, the Nile, would be nothing short of missing out.
While on a holiday in Cairo, Egypt's capital and one of its biggest cities, take precautions to keep your belongings safe. Pickpocketing, in particular, is a recurring crime. Best to leave your valuables at the hotel safe.
Drink bottled water. Egyptian tap water is not recommended for regular daily consumption.
Tourism offices can be the source of plenty of information for inquiring travelers.
