Run by: Dragoman

Reference number: ECA

From: £3850.00

As the title suggests, this trip really explores the ancient cultures of Northern Africa. It travels between Cairo and Addis Ababa, two of Africa’s great modern day cities. But along the way it passes through the lands and history of three great cultures.

The most obvious is the land of Ancient Egypt, and we have over 18 days to explore the Egyptian Nile Valley and it’s myriad of ancient relics, such as the Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara, Thebes, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, Aswan and of course Abu Simbel. We also make time to explore the Nile by an overnight Felucca trip.

The next of the great cultures is the least known, the Kushite Kingdom of Sudan’s Nubian Desert and this is where we really come into our own, as our overland vehicle and camping equipment, allow us to camp out in the desert at some of Africa’s finest ruins. Finally, we have over three weeks to really get to grips with Northern Ethiopia, its mountains, deserts and its wonderfully ancient Christian culture.
