If you have ever been to Egypt you know how incredible it is. An authentic destination that has managed to preserve its ancient charm, Egypt is out-of-this-world. For decades travellers have made their way to the desert country to experience it first-hand. From watching locals ride camels to walking around street markets and blending in with the crowds at busy squares, there are so many different ways to explore the country.
Nomads who head to Egypt to learn more about its history and culture are the ones who take away the lessons that the country has to give. Observe the traditions whenever locals perform them, appreciate the beauty of the sandy hills and taste the local food. It is impossible to resist falling under Egypt's spell because the beauty of the country is beyond compare.
Camp in the desert and read the tales about the Bedouins; learn about the pyramids and the ancient past of the times when pharaohs ruled the land; trace the deserts and walk the busy streets of the cities. Egypt is a kaleidoscope of eras and a cultural mish-mash of diversity that will make you fall in love with the country, just like we did.
