Honeymoons in Egypt

The oldest civilisation on earth, Egypt has a mystical and timeless appeal. Spectacular sights include the ancient temples and tombs of the Nile Valley, and the bazaars, mosques and citadel of vibrant Cairo sprawling towards the worldfamous Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza. Away from the bustling city explore the natural wonders of the Red Sea with fantastic coral reefs and tropical fish. Sharm El Sheikh has glorious sandy beaches and from here you can also visit the terrific interior of the Sinai desert by camel, horse back or jeep.

Egypt Overview

One of the oldest civilisations on the planet, Egypt is steeped in history and packed full of ancient monuments just waiting to be discovered.

During your honeymoon in Egypt, take a romantic cruise down the Nile and see the sprawling deserts, temples and tombs that are located along this stretch of beautiful water. For the more adventurous couple, a camel ride through the desert offers the memory of a lifetime that you will both be talking about for years to come. Or experience some traditional Egyptian culture and take a trip through the bustling cities with bazaars selling antiques and ancient artefacts.

A honeymoon in Egypt wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Valley of the Kings. You can stand in awe of the great pyramids and explore this region rich in culture and history.

A honeymoon in Egypt has so much to offer, what could be more romantic than exploring this new land as you begin your married life together.
