Egypt — Introduction
The land of the Pharaohs, Pyramids and the magical Nile, Egypt has captivated people for generations. The country was founded on an ancient civilisation whose influence has carved out its historical landscape.
The wondrous Red Sea basks in glorious year-round sunshine helping to make it the world’s most northern tropical sea. The incredible clarity of the water means a lot of sea life can be viewed from the surface and so it offers fantastic experiences for snorkelers as well as divers.
Hurghada with its wonderful beach scene and water sports is a great place for a tranquil family holiday. While just across the water, Sharm El Sheikh has all you’d expect of a great break including stunning beaches, casinos, nightclubs and golf courses. The cooler evenings are a good time to hit the shops, which stay open until late.
Away from the coast take a desert safari to see indigenous Bedouin communities and take a ride on a camel.
