Walk in the footsteps of pharaohs as we explore the wonders of ancient Egypt and end on the rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara. During this amazing journey with a completely unique itinerary, we'll cruise the Nile, relax on the exotic spice island of Zanzibar and enjoy amazing game drives spotting the Big 5.


Our tour starts in Cairo, where the world of ancient Egypt awaits. Here we’ll experience all the must-see sights. It’s impossible to name them all but highlights include the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Valley of the Kings, the beautiful Luxor and Karnak temples, the iconic Sphinx, the stunning temples of Abu Simbel and the riverside temples of Kom Ombo. During our time in Egypt, we’ll also enjoy a four night Nile Cruise- a great way to travel between sightseeing!


After the wonders of Egypt, and before we experience the amazing game viewing in Kenya, we enjoy three days to relax and unwind on the exotic spice island of Zanzibar. Here you can explore the island with its rich colonial past or simply soak up the relaxed beach life.


From Zanzibar, our tour continues to Kenya. Our sightseeing takes us back to nature, as we enjoy some fantastic game drives in the Samburu and Nakuru National Parks. And just when you think it couldn’t get any better, we head on to the Maasai Mara, Kenya’s finest and most famous wildlife reserve. With its abundance of wildlife and amazing rolling grasslands, it makes for unforgettable game viewing.
