North Africa is full of fascinating ancient history and is tantalising mix of African, Persian, Greek and Roman influences. A paradise for travellers, the region has everything from drifting along the Nile on a traditional felucca to mingling with tribal groups in Ethiopia's Omo Valley. If you're interested in discovering an incredible area full of history, culture, and stunning scenery, there is no greater place on Earth to head to!
Egypt is world-famous for its abundance of incredible antiquities and ancient sites, such as the temples of Abu Simbel, the Valley of the Kings and the Karnak Temple at Luxor, as well as the unbelievable Pyramids of Giza! It's also a stunning place to explore the vast deserts, the sparkling blue waters of the Red Sea, and to explore cosmopolitan Cairo and Alexandria. In Sudan, the desert landscape that runs along the Nile has an inherent beauty that can only be fully appreciated under a star-filled sky during an overnight bush camp. The people are renowned for the friendliness and warmth. Ethiopia has it all, from the incredible Simien Mountains to the fascinating ancient rock-hewn churches of Lalibela to the breathtaking Blue Nile Gorge.
