Run by: Dragoman

Reference number: ECN

From: £4096.00

This classic overland route between Cairo and Nairobi will take you from the splendours of ancient Egypt to the great game parks of East Africa, via a whole host of other highlights and hidden gems in between. After exploring Cairo with its world famous Pyramids of Giza and phenomenal Museum of Antiquities, we’ll visit the fascinating city of Alexandria, and follow the Red Sea down to Luxor - here we will visit the Valley of the Kings and the colossal Karnak Temple before taking a sailing trip on a traditional felucca. Most Egypt trips end here, but with Dragoman you’ll be much more adventurous and continue via the iconic Temples of Abu Simbel into the vast desert wilderness of Sudan. Travel in this part of the world is tough and frequently challenging, but as a reward we get unparalleled€cess to places such as the Pyramids of Meroe and the ruined temples of the Kushite kingdom, as well as enjoying some of the most remote and atmospheric wild camps in the world. From there we head into the wonderful country of Ethiopia, an extraordinary land with a unique cultural heritage of opulent monasteries, stunning churches carved out of the mountains, and incredible scenery. In Ethiopia you’ll visit all the historical sites, trek in the spectacular Simien Mountains, and meet the unique tribes of the remote Omo Valley region. We will then cross into Kenya and take the challenging roads to the lands of the Samburu tribe, where we have a fascinating village stay and an incredible safari in Samburu National Park, home to some of Kenya’s rarer wildlife such as the curious gerenuk and Grevy’s zebra. We will head through the incredible wildlife area of Lake Nakuru before finishing in the bustling Kenyan capital of Nairobi.
