DAY

Cairo Exploration

Enter the labyrinth-like bazaar known as Khan El-Khalili in the historic center of Islamic Cairo. Thousands of metres of narrow alleys and hundreds of local shops filled with handmade crafts, textiles, carpentry, restaurants and sheesha smoke. We’ll also witness the majestic architecture of Cairo’s most impressive mosques, followed by a boat ride along the Nile. The day will be filled with great food, exploration, shopping and authentic live musical and dance performances.

DAY

The Black Desert

We leave the big city and head deep into the Sahara Desert. Once we reach the Black Desert, we’ll set up at an Oasis Lodge and fill our bellies with native Bedouin-style slow-cooked meats and enjoy some traditional native music.

DAY

The White Desert

The journey continues as we enter what Egyptians call the White Desert, where centuries of sandstorms and crystal-storms have changed the colour of the rock to a perfect snow-white. Soak in the quiet serenity as the sun sets across the open horizon. Then, all that’s left to do is appreciate the beautiful star-lit sky.

DAY

After a nice breakfast, we will explore the ancient Temples of Karnak and Luxor. Rest assured by the end of today you will have an honorary degree in Egyptian History!

DAY
