Holidays in Cairo

Cairo is the largest city in Africa, and it continues to grow at a rapid pace. Steeped in history it is a must see destination for travellers. Scratch beneath the surface and it reveals wondrous secrets, beautiful mosques, imposing citadels and unexpected garden oases.

Cairo holidays take you to a city between the Nile Delta and Alexandria. Start your journey through time at Saladin’s citadel, then venture back through the warrens of Coptic Cairo, the city’s Roman remains and finally to nearby Giza, the greatest of the surviving pyramids and the Great Sphinx. All that sightseeing will leave you hungry – make sure your guides take you to an authentic Arabic restaurant where the flatbread is oven-fresh and the dips unlike anything you’ve tasted before.
