Egypt Overview

Egypt is home to one of the oldest civilizations on our planet, and is filled with ancient temples, pyramids, and tombs dating back to the dawn of civilized man. The bustling cities are packed with bazaars selling unique antiques and artefacts, mosques in devotion to Gods old and new, and modern amenities. Outside the cities, blazing deserts sprawl into the African heartland, clashing with the raging Nile, and the numerous coral reefs of the Red Sea on the eastern coast. Exploration of the amazing landscape can be made via jeep, camel, or horseback.
