Lands of Ancient Treasures
Why we love Egypt, Jordan & Morocco:
The treasure trove of archaeological wonders found at the Pyramids of Giza, Jordan's "Lost City" of Petra intricately carved into the sandstone and the pulsing energy of the medina (historic center) in Marrakech. These Sub-Saharan countries ignite fascination and curiosity.
From Cairo, don't miss the Cairo Museum - filled with the finds of King Tutankhamun and the Khan el Khalili Bazaar. Head to the ancient citadel of Memphis - from here you will see the iconic Pyramids, the Alabaster Sphinx, and the Great Sphinx. In Luxor, Egypt, meander The Nile River by boat just as Egyptians have done for centuries, passing alongside the temples, Nubian villages and the dunes of the desert. Venture into the Valley of the Kings, full of the tombs and temples of the Pharaohs, many excavated but many more still waiting to be discovered.
The incredible natural landscape of Wadi Rum in Jordan with its remarkable sandstone mountains, desert valleys, arches and canyons are best seen by a 4WD and a hike, and afterwards float buoyantly in the natural, ancient spa of the mineral-rich Dead Sea.
Morocco's fusion of Moorish and Mediterranean heritage is evident from the architecture and culture to the cuisine and stunning cities. In the bustling cities of Fez and Rabat, discover the maze of souks full of fragrant spices, antiques and street life, the towering minarets all coming together in a perfect blend of organized chaos. Explore the Roman ruins of Volubilis to gain insight into Morocco's unique past. Venture into the Sahara, with sand dunes as far as you can see, and spend an unforgettable night in a luxury tented Bedouin camp taking a trek by camel or Dune Buggy. Travel up to the snow-covered peaks of the High Atlas Mountains to a Berber village for mint tea with the locals. Complete your journey in Marrakech, the old walled town that buzzes with the traditional ways and modern Morocco.
