February - Egypt done differently
This is Egypt done differently taking you far beyond the usual well-trodden routes and into its remote corners. The itinerary combines the Sahara, Cairo and the Nile Valley and begins by exploring the Western Desert around Siwa, on the edge of the Great Sand Sea whilst staying at Adrere Amellal, an exceptional eco-lodge on the edge of a salt-water lake. Our guests drove deep into the dunes beyond and spent a night in a remote camp under the stars.
Next, they explored the banks of the River Nile on the edge of the Nubian Desert in Aswan, where Agatha Christie wrote her famous novel ‘Death on The Nile’. There's also the city’s colorful souks to discover before taking a felucca out on the Nile at sunset. The journey continued to Luxor, passing rustic villages and donkey drawn carts before the approach to the unique and beautifully decorated Al Moudira, a peaceful and luxury boutique hotel on the West Bank. From here one can marvel over Luxor’s magnificent monuments - the Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple to name a few before returning back to the hubbub of Cairo.
