Egypt
Cairo, Egypt
Spectacular desert landscapes, home to thousands of years of history, great feats of archaeological wonder and Mother Nature’s sensational ability to create her own phenomenon. We invite you to follow in the footsteps of mighty pharaohs and biblical prophets as you uncover this unique part of the world.

You'll experience the Egyptian capital and one of the country’s largest cities, Cairo, is the gateway to the Nile delta. A magnificent mix of Roman, Arab and Turkish influence, lush vegetation and contemporary skyscrapers co-exist among its 400+ registered monuments.

Embark on an awe-inspiring journey to the Great Pyramids of Giza and the famous Sphinx. Visit the Egyptian Museum, home to items discovered from the tomb of Tutankhamun, and enjoy shopping around one of the city’s main hotspots, the bazaar district, where you’ll visit Khan el-Khalili, a busy and open-air souk in central Cairo.
 
The Nile

Your journey through this unmistakable landscape includes a river ship cruise down The Nile. Recognised as the longest river in the world, the Nile has been named the ‘Father of African Rivers’ and rises from the south of the equator through north east Africa, before draining in the Mediterranean Sea.

A lifeline for the Ancient Egyptians, contending with little yearly rainfall, the river aided agriculture as it provided a fertile setting from which to prosper.
 
Jordan
egypt-nile-river-jordan
Located on the east bank of the Jordan River, the country plays a huge role in biblical history and is defined by its ancient monuments, such as the Treasury at Petra. The capital, Amman, is thought to be one of the oldest cities in the world, with archaeologists suggesting humans settled as early as the 13th century BC.

A journey to Jordan is not complete without a visit to Petra. At the main entrance, the Nabatean capital, stands the Treasury, believed to be over 2,000 years old, its excellent preservation certain to leave a lasting impression. The intricate carvings adorning its façade provide a wonderful insight into Nabatean culture, with the inside compared to that of a film set. Catch it at its most ethereal between 9am and 11am, as the sun hits it directly, or between 5pm and 6pm as the pink glow of the setting sun smothers its intricate structure.
