Tour Overview

The initial portion of this wondrous 27-day adventure through three breathtaking countries, any one of which would alone warrant spending at least a couple of weeks of a tour investigating the many famous attractions, begins on the banks of the Nile, in one of the most intense metropolises on the planet: Cairo. We visit the major tourist hot-spots, like the awe-inspiring Great Pyramid, guarded by the regal sphinxe -- now a common symbol of Egypt's glory and mystery -- Karnak Temple -- which numbers among the most enriching archaeological sites in the world -- and the UNESCO Heritage Site of the Valley of the Kings, wherein lie the tombs of nearly all the pharaohs from the 18th to the 20th dynasties.

Cruising down the Nile, embarking on horse-drawn carriage rides and excursions on camel- and donkey-back enhance our experience and understanding of the history and culture of remarkable country, where spending time in small, colourful villages proves highly informative and enriching.

Crossing into Kenya, we admire the glorious natural environment that endows the country with international acclaim in no fewer than four national parks and reserves: along with stunning landscapes of semi-desert savannah plains fringed by towering snow-tipped peaks and tranquil lakes, we see elephant, giraffe, cheetah, leopard, lion, antelope and wildebeest, to name but a few of the exotic wildlife on offer in one of Africa's prime safari regions.

In Tanzania, we visit the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater and take a trip to a land of superlatives in the ultimate safari destination: Serengeti National Park. Few places can rival the Serengeti for safari experiences and then we bring our tour to an end investigating the fascinating past of the region with trips to archaeological sites of interest.

Accomodations were very good--particularly the lodges in Kenya & Tanzania.
