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 music 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 delectable native Bedouin slow-cooked meats and enjoy some traditional native music.

DAY

05

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. All that’s left to do is appreciate the sublime star-lit desert night sky.

DAY

Waking before dawn, we will witness the most beautiful sunrise that North Africa has to offer - from a hot air balloon soaring above the Valley of the Kings! After breakfast, we will explore the ancient Temples of Karnak and Luxor. Rest assured, by the end of today you'll have an honorary degree in Egyptian History!

DAY

Valley of the Kings

We step foot into the desert valley which is home to the burial ground of the most famous Egyptian Pharaohs, including King Tut whose mummified body lays there in pristine condition.

DAY

09

Land of Nubia

“Within four and a half seconds, the whole group had bonded!”

“Every single day felt like a whole vacation. As a person who loves to travel and has been all over the world, my experiences with Tryps have been the highlight of all the vacations I've ever had. Not only is each tryp perfectly planned and curated, for the first time ever, I could just relax and enjoy every second of my time away, not having to think about a single detail that plagues every vacation plan.”
