Nature & Culture

With a history stretching back thousands of years and famous for its pyramids, pharaohs and mysterious deserts, Egypt lies in the north-east of the African continent and includes the Sinai Peninsula, which lies in Asia.

Here flows the longest river in the world, the Nile. This river plays a vital role in the history of this fascinating country. Egypt is a gift of the Nile, according to local people. The river stands for fertility, life and wealth. Apart from the Nile, the country mostly consists of desert, separated into the Libyan Desert and the world-famous Sahara Desert. In ancient Egypt this region was known as the “red country” and served to protect the pharaohs from attacks from the west.

The Egyptian capital Cairo, also known Al Qahirah, is definitely worth a visit. As one of the largest cities in the world with more than 24 million inhabitants, it has countless attractions to offer. Cairo combines the modern world and thousands of years of history in a fascinating way. In the immediate vicinity of this impressive city lie the famous pyramids of Gizeh and countless temples, churches and Muslim monuments.  

But there are also plenty of other destinations that are worth exploring. See for yourself!

Qulaan Islands

Our tip for your holiday in Egypt: a snorkelling trip to the Qulaan Islands. These islands are a true paradise for snorkelers and everyone who loves sun, sea and nature. The Qulaan Islands are part of the Wadi-el-Gemal National Park which lies about 50 km south of Marsa Alam. Experience a wonderful day’s holiday in unspoilt nature!

Quad safari

If you want to explore the desert from another perspective, then a quad safari is just the right thing for you. As part of a guided group, you can discover the desert in a quad, either alone or with another person.

Hurghada

Hurghada lies on the Red Sea coast and has developed in the last 15 years from a small fishing village to the most popular holiday region in Egypt. In El Dahar, the oldest part of the city, you can experience the original culture and atmosphere of Egypt. Stroll through the modern shopping area in El Memsha (Village Road). In lively Sekalla you will find countless places to shop and also the new top address in Hurghada: the New Marina. Stop off in one of the attractive cafés, bars or restaurants and enjoy the great views of luxury yachts in the port.

The Pyramids of Gizeh

The Pyramids of Gizeh are the last of the 7 ancient World Wonders that can still be admired today. The view of this 146 metre high and 4,500 year old monument from the days of the pharaohs is simply breathtaking!

Luxor

Luxor, previously known as Egypt’s former capital Thebes, lies directly on the Nile in the south of the country. This is where you will find the most important treasures of Egyptian architecture. In a kind of open air museum on both sides of the Nile, the region is home to the mightiest buildings of ancient Egypt. Luxor is famous for its temples and the Valley of the Kings. Explore Egyptian history and visit this unique region.

Abu Simbel Temple

About 3,000 years ago, Ramses II displayed his power in stone here. The temple’s façade, showing the pharaoh in four seated poses, is world-famous. The temple gained worldwide headlines with its rescue in the 1960s when it had to be relocated due to construction of the Aswan Dam. A visit here is a highlight of any trip to Egypt.

Guest reviews

Best place for Holiday :)

Julia_950, March 2014

I was in Sentido week ago. Those were really nice days! Service and personel were really friendly. Rooms were very clean. We had great location because it was right in front of the sea and near to a pool. I wasn't at spa personally so I can't tell anything, but my auntie was and she has good memories with that, so I'm giving 5 stars. Food really delicious. Everyday there was a different cousine so everyone can find something for himself :D

 

Everything was great
