What to Expect In Egypt
When you arrive at Cairo International Airport you can look forward to a warm reception. Your assigned tour manager will meet and assist you at the airport. In most cases, they will also provide you with your entry visa for Egypt. Meanwhile, one of our drivers will be outside the airport with one of our deluxe air-conditioned vehicles waiting to drive you to the hotel where you will be staying during your time in Cairo, the bustling Egyptian capital.
When you get to your hotel, you will be assisted with check-in. Your tour manager will also review your trip itinerary with you and pick-up times will be established for your upcoming tours.
NB: Once you have booked your flight to Cairo, please let us know what time your flight will be arriving so that your tour manager and a driver can be at the airport when your flight lands.
Sightseeing During Your Stay in Cairo
All tours to sites in and around Cairo are private guided tours. You will have your own Expert guide and your own private driver. Sightseeing in Cairo kicks off with a visit to Egypt’s legendary Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx on the outskirts of Cairo. You will also visit a number of other local attractions, including the Egyptian Museum and the bustling Khan el Khalili Bazaar.
Depending on which itinerary you choose, you may also visit some other local attractions in Cairo as well, including places like the Hanging Church of Cairo and the Cairo Citadel. Most of our itineraries also include an afternoon drive to Saqqara to see the Great Step Pyramid of Pharaoh Djozer. This was the first pyramid ever built by the ancient Egyptians. Usually, you will also enjoy a trip to Memphis. Memphis was the ancient capital of the Old Kingdom, although today not much remains of the city. Memphis and Saqqara are both just a short drive from Cairo.
Free bottled water is provided during all tours, not only in Cairo, but throughout your trip. Lunches at good local restaurants in Cairo are usually included during our Cairo tours.
5-Star Nile River Cruises
All of our existing Egypt and Kenya tour and safari bundles include a 5-Star Nile cruise between the cities of Luxor and Aswan. Domestic flight tickets from Cairo to Luxor/Aswan and back to Cairo are included in the price of our travel packages. When you arrive at Luxor Airport or Aswan Airport for your Nile River cruise, you are met at the airport by one of our tour representatives and a driver who will then take you to board your cruise.
Your cruise includes full board and admission fees for all the sites mentioned in our itineraries. Any and all services charges and taxes are also included. With us, there are no hidden costs whatsoever.
Tombs and Temples from Luxor to Aswan
No matter which direction your cruise runs in, you can look forward to seeing the same magnificent ancient tombs, temples and ruins. And, because one or more of our Expert guides are always on board any vessel carrying our clients, your onshore excursions in Luxor, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Aswan are guaranteed to be as rewarding as they possibly can be because you will have a professional guide right by your side.
In Luxor, you will get to see some of the very best ancient monuments, including the Valley of Kings; the mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut; Karnak Temple complex, Luxor Temple and the Colossi of Memnon. Most Luxor excursions begin with a visit to the Valley of Kings, an ancient royal necropolis where Pharaohs of the New Kingdom era were entombed. There are more than 60 tombs here, including the tomb of King Tutankhamun.
After visiting the necropolis, you will typically visit Hatshepsut’s mortuary temple. This magnificent temple complex was designed by Hatshepsut’s royal architect who also oversaw the entire project. It is considered to be one of the “Incomparable Monuments of Ancient Egypt,” as is the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Colossi of Memnon consists of two giant statues. These are all that remain of another mortuary temple which was located ajacent to the site where Hatshepsut had her temple built.
The necropolis, the temple and the Colossi of Memnon are all located in close proximity to each other on the west bank of the Nile.
For many travelers, the vast ruins of the Karnak Temple complex on the east bank of the Nile are another highlight of the excursions in Luxor. Luxor Temple, which is also on the east bank of the Nile is also a wonderful temple to visit in the evening for the Lights and Sound Show, although this is an optional extra.
Edfu and Kom Ombo
After sailing out of Luxor, your next excursion will be at Edfu to see the breathtaking Edfu Temple which is also known as the Temple of Horus. This is Egypt’s best-preserved ancient cult temple, and also one of the biggest. The next time you leave the ship it will be at Kom Ombo to see the remains of what is believed to be the only twin temple ever built by the ancient Egyptians. The reason for the unique design of this temple is because the temple was to be devoted to two different gods: Sobek the crocodile god and Horus the falcon-headed god.
During your excursion in Aswan, you will usually visit the area’s ancient stone quarries first to see the giant Unfinished Obelisk. From there you visit the Aswan High Dam. Construction of the High Dam created what is today known as Lake Nasser. Many ancient ruins and relics were lost to the lake when it formed, although some of the best ones, including Philae Temple, were saved by moving them to higher ground.
After visiting the Aswan High Dam, you will be taken to see the ancient Temple of Philae which was relocated in its entirety to its current location. Depending on which of our Egypt and Kenya packages you choose, you may also be able to enjoy an optional visit to the magnificent rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel before you return to Cairo in preparation for your flight to Nairobi in Kenya.
Transferring from Cairo to Nairobi
With your magical cruise along the River Nile now behind you, we fly you back to Cairo where you will spend one more night in a hotel. As is always the case when you travel with us, you will be met at the airport when you arrive in Cairo and then transferred to your hotel. The following day you will be picked up at the appropriate time and you will be driven to the airport in time for you to board your flight to Nairobi, the Kenyan capital.
When you land at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, one of our tour representatives will be there to meet and assist you, and to transfer you to your hotel in Nairobi. They will also confirm a pick-up time for the following day. Most of our Egypt and Kenya bundles bundles only include one night in Nairobi before your safaris begin. The remaining nights are all spent in comfortable lodges or cams in various national parks.
What to Expect In Kenya
After spending your first night at your hotel in Nairobi, the emphasis during the rest of your trip will now be all about relaxation and game drive safaris in some of Kenya’s best national parks. All game drive safaris are undertaken in modern and fully equipped fit-for-purpose vehicles. You will also always be in the company of and experience guide employed by the various parks you visit during your stay.
Having an experienced guide with you has two benefits. To begin with, they know how to keep guests safe and out of harm’s way. They are also totally familiar with the parks in which they work, so they know where all the best places are to see Africa’s legendary wildlife. Likewise, they know what times of the day are best for viewing game.
Some days you will only enjoy one game drive, while on other days you will enjoy a game drive in the morning and another game drive in the afternoon. You are literally guaranteed to see a wide range of wild animals during your game spotting trips.
Kenya is home to many different nature reserves, and we take you only to the very best ones, including places like the Masai Mara National Park; Lake Nakuru National Park; Aberdare National Park, and the Lake Elementaita Nature Reserve.
Maasai Mara National Reserve – Kenya’s Top Nature Reserve
The Masai Mare National Reserve was officially established in 1961. Today it covers an area of just over 1,500 square kilometers and shares a border with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It is Africa’s most important and most famous nature reserve. It is world-renowned for its impressive populations of Africa’s famous Big 5: African elephants; African leopards; Cape buffalos; lions, and cheetahs.
In addition to the Big 5, Masai Mara is home to countless other species as well, including black and white rhinos, giraffes; zebras, and many other types of hooved mammals, along with an abundance of birdlife. Wildebeest are the most dominant species, with numbers running into the millions. The Masai Mara nature reserve is also famous for an event known as the Great Migration.
The Great Migration is one of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World and also one of the 10 Wonders of the World. In July every year there is a mass migration northwards from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara. In October, this mass migration takes place again, but in the opposite direction. These migrations involve around 1.3 million wildebeest; 500,000 gazelles; 97,000 Topi; 18,000 elands, and approximately 200,000 zebras. However, many of these species also remain in the Masai Mara nature reserve all year round.
If you are passionate about wildlife or you are longing to see an abundance of wild animals in their natural habitat, then we simply can’t recommend our Egypt and Kenya tours highly enough. Every day you spend in Kenya will an unforgettable day. Just imagine spending your days game watching, and your nights relaxing under the African sky sipping on drinks or refreshments and listening to the sounds of the wild.
Travelers who visit Kenya with one of our travel bundles don’t only get to experience the Masai Mara conservancy and its abundant wildlife. They also get to visit some of Kenya’s other top nature reserves such as the famous Lake Nakuru National Park and the Aberdare National Park. The Lake Nakuru Reserve is also home to an abundance of wild life, and is particularly famous for the vast number of flamingos that frequent the lake, literally turning it into a sea of pink.
NOTE: If you want to witness the Great Migration during your stay in Kenya, we strongly recommend booking your trip well in advance. During July and October when the migration occurs, many of the lodges and hotels become fully booked.
Amboseli National Park – The Second-Most Nature Reserve in Kenya
Depending on which one of our travel packages you choose, you may or may not visit the Amboseli National Park. Despite being considerably smaller than Masai Mara, the Amboseli National Reserve is home to an abundance of game. Located approximately 250 kilometers to the southeast of Nairobi, it is the second-most popular reserve in Kenya. It is also considered to be one of the world’s best game viewing experiences. The park is especially well-known for its herds of free roaming African elephants and its 400+ different bird species.
If your itinerary includes a stay at Amboseli, you can look forward to spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain. In 1991, Amboseli was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If it is not featured in your preferred itinerary but you would like it to be, simply inform us so we can customize your itinerary accordingly.
Triple Country Vacations – An Even More Immersive Travel Experience
Not satisfied with on visiting these two breathtaking destinations? Why not check out some of our other packages that include a third destination as well, such and Morocco for example. Because Morocco is such a hugely popular tourist destination, we’ve incorporated it into some of our epic Egypt and Kenya packages.
Meals and Refreshments during Your Trip
We could easily include all meals in our tour packages, but it simply isn’t practical because different people have different tastes and preferences when it comes to food. Additionally, including all meals in our tours could potentially have an undesirable impact on the prices of our package deals.
As a general rule, when our clients are staying at hotels in Cairo, Nairobi, or elsewhere, it’s on a “Bed and Breakfast” basis only. On the other hand, all of our Nile River cruises are on a “Full Board” basis, meaning that breakfast, lunch and dinner are included throughout the cruise.
When staying in hotels, lodges or camps in game parks, accommodation is typically also on a “Full Board” basis. Most sightseeing tours in Cairo will also include lunch at good local restaurants. Lunch is also usually included during Red Sea SCUBA diving and snorkeling trips. All of our travel itineraries show exactly which meals are included each day.
Bottled water is provided during all tours and excursions, and also during all road trips. In certain instances, soft drinks may also be included, and if so, it will be mentioned in your chosen itinerary. However, clients are typically responsible for buying their own refreshments other than the bottled water which is provided by us.
