Journey with us along the mighty River Nile, through lands whose ancestry stretch back to the dawn of antiquity. Travelling in the footsteps of the pharaohs, this remarkable adventure takes you from the Giza Plateau to the shores of Lake Nasser and on into the deserts of ancient Nubia, on an 18 day journey that ends before the merging waters of the Blue and White Niles.
Beginning in Cairo you’ll discover the last of the seven great wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramids of Giza, before following the fertile river as it winds its way through the Nile Valley. Taking in some of the most important and sacred temples in ancient Egypt you’ll head south, stopping off to explore the Valley of the Kings and the mighty temple of Karnak as you make your way towards Aswan and the shores of Lake Nasser.
Crossing into neighbouring Sudan you then enter the lands of ancient Nubia, home to some of the most remarkable archaeological sites on the African continent. Here, amongst the dunes of the Nubian Desert, you’ll come across the haunting pyramids of Meroe, before ending your journey in Khartoum at the meeting of the two Niles.
