Egypt undoubtedly is one of the most mysterious of the African nations, with a rich history full of exciting moments and well-known Pharaohs this nation is worth a look for more than just the pyramids at Giza. Let your imagination run away with you as you explore African landscapes such as the 20 metre high Sphinx and the Great Pyramid – the only Wonder of the Ancient World still in existence. Further down, the Nile river brings you to African landscapes such as The Valley of the Kings and Queens, Luxor, and Aswan to name a few, as well as Abu Simbel to the very far south. These locations all host their own ruins and temples dedicated to various Gods and Goddesses, and have their own unique African landscapes, from the dusky desert at the Valley of the Kings, to the expansive lake at Abu Simbel, dotted with boats ushering passengers to and from Sudan. Further to the west from Cairo brings you to the mysterious village of Siwa Oasis – a date plantation in the middle of the Western Desert, home to a natural spring known as Cleopatra’s bath; a spring the Pharaoh Cleopatra was known to use during her reign as Queen. Alexander the Great also came here with his army, so Siwa Oasis is a true step back in history. The village itself is a basic, traditional mud and clay village, with tiny dusty streets and market stalls, sure to keep you engaged for hours.
