The Nile. Its very name evokes images of temples, vast deserts, green oases. Few rivers anywhere are more important to world history or the people who live along its banks. One of only two rivers in t he world that flows south to north. It touches 11 African countries, but we focus on three.

Ethiopia is where you can touch the Nile at one of its main sources, Lake Tana, which feeds the Blue Nile Falls. And no nation is more closely linked to the Nile than Egypt, which witnessed the raising of the Giza pyramid and the rise and fall of empires. In between, there is Sudan, the site of its own ancient Nile civilizations and cradle of the warriors who and gave Egypt its Black pharaohs.

Touch the Nile headwaters as part of a visit to Ethiopia. Visit Egypt’s famed historic Nile sites — the Giza pyramids, Abu Simbel, the Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings, not to mention Cairo, its ancient capital, and the famed port city of Alexandria, once home to the world’s greatest library. And in Sudan — which has more pyramids than Egypt — you can see the temple of Soleb and the pyramids of Meroë, once the seats of the Nubian kings who conquered ancient Egypt.

Their descendants still live along the Nile — and you can meet them.

 

Typically, our tours include 8-14 days “on the ground.”  We design our itineraries around your desires, so their length can be as long or as brief as you wish.  But given the amount of flying time — and expense — it takes to reach Africa from North America, it doesn’t make much sense to spend two or three days and then fly back.

As much as there is to see and do, we won’t rush you into your tour the moment you clear the airport. You’ll spend your first day recuperating from your long flight, getting used to this new environment, getting a chance to sample the food and drink, and just chill.

Your days will be full. Your nights will be yours. On Day 2, your tour will begin in earnest, with lots of sights and activities to give you a real taste of the “the Mother Continent.”  At the end of the day, however, you’ll have time for yourself. Want to go shopping? Check out a nightspot? Or just relax, refresh and kick back? You’ll get your chance.

Are you flexible? We are. Our itineraries are carefully crafted to turn your tour into your dream trip. But when the opportunity presents itself and circumstances permit, we’re not above veering off-script to do something unexpected and special.
