History that rolls back to the break of civilization; landscapes beyond the wildest imagination; ancient ruins that stretch out in unthinkable proportions – Egypt has more exotica within its borders than any one country has a right to. From the surrealist’s playground that is the White Desert to the Red Sea’s paintbox of colours; from the quiet splendour of Luxor’s Valley of the Kings to Cairo’s perpetual hustle and bustle.

Egypt is one of those countries where you are happily reminded of man’s power to create great wonders (witness Abu Simbel’s statues soaring over you), but of nature’s power to reach even greater heights – take a felucca ride up Egypt’s never-ending artery, the Nile, and you’ll know what we mean. Eternally wonderful and filled with marvels, and we haven’t even mentioned the pyramids.
