An Ancient World Awaits Bench Africa’s New Egypt Tours

March 7, 2020 john 0 Comments

In 430 BC, when Greek historian Herodotos visited the magnificent monuments in Egypt, many of them were already 2,500 years old. Many of the pyramids of Giza, the astonishingly beautiful temples of Karnak or Philae, and the painted tombs in the Valley of the Kings, can still be visited today. And they are - millions of tourists are attracted each year to the Nile Valley, as well as the stunning diving resorts of the Red Sea.

Few of those tourists really take the time to get to know the region and its history - a mistake that we wouldn't want you to make - and that's why any visit to Egypt has to be with a guide, and today that's Bench Africa. An Australian based Africa travel specialist, their knowledgeable team of experts are on hand to personally organize everything from the moment you book until the moment you arrive safely back home. Scroll down to see some of their newest Egypt itineraries, some of which now offer savings of up to $800pp!

The River Nile
The life-giving Nile runs north through the country to the Mediterranean, feeding a ribbon of irrigated fields & villages shaded by palms. Whether on a cruise ship or traditional felucca boat, life on the water is a constant visual feast, while the cities of; Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan and Luxor are a babble of exotic sounds and smells.

The Red Sea
Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheik are doors to a magical underwater world of technicolour fish and coral that draws divers from around the world. Here, you can discover monasteries amid the arid mountains of Sinai or the distant desert oasis, home to the hardy nomads whose camel trains still wander the Saharan sands.
