|Egypt's pyramids:This is a full day starting with Sakkara. Sakkara
is a vast, ancient burial ground in Egypt, featuring the
world's oldest standing pyramid .The area is filled with
tombs and remains of temples to be explored. After
visiting Sakkara we will move down the road a few kilometers
to Dashure. The Pyramids of Dahshure always evoke in
me a great part of the history of the pyramids. You can't
understand how the ancient Egyptians built the Great
Pyramids without going there. Dahshure is the home to 2 more
important pyramids, and several others that are nearly ruins
The two that remain are the Bent Pyramid and
the Red Pyramid. The Red Pyramid is the 2nd
largest pyramid in Egypt and it is open for you to go
inside. It is as good as the ones in Giza and the best part
is that few tourists bother to travel out to Dashure so it
is nearly empty when you go in. Finally we will come back up
to Giza to see the 3 most famous pyramids, the
Great Pyramid of Cheops, the only survivor of the Seven
Wonders of the Ancient World, the Pyramids of Chefren,
Mycerinus, and the famous Sphinx who is Giza’s guardian.
To the east of the legendary Sphinx lies the museum housing
the Solar Boat. This is the oldest boat on earth, the
141-foot-long funerary boat of King Cheops.
Camel or horseback riding around the pyramids of Giza:
be piggy-backed onto the day at the pyramids if energy levels allow,
or it can be done on a separate morning or afternoon. This is a fun
trip around in the dunes south of the pyramids either on horseback
We can start your day by setting off on our camels at dawn, watching
the sun rise in the dessert as the pyramids come into view out of
the morning haze. If you are not a morning person, camping at sunset
will be almost the same. If you would like a full desert experience,
camping overnight in the desert will be an unforgettable experience.
Lunch or dinner picnics are also available.
