Discovering Egypt brings out the explorer is everyone, regardless of age, which is what makes it a great destination for a family holiday. Egypt is a giant adventure playground which captures the imagination.

One of the most fabled periods of world history is told through the iconic landmarks of the times of the Pharaohs. But this is just one side of what Egypt has to offer families looking to get away.

Thankfully, it has never been easier. In the past it was necessary to go to an embassy to get a visa. Now the Egypt e-Visa application process can be completed in just a few minutes online!

Egypt has so much to offer as a holiday destination, here are just a few of the unmissable fun-packed family adventures.

The Pyramids of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the last standing of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and it still fills adults and kids with amazement. How they were built still leaves historians and archaeologists scratching their heads. Witness the mysterious Giant Sphinx and take a tour of the Valley of the Kings, the ancient burial ground of the Pharaohs.

Journey down the Nile

Travel down the Nile in sailboat, the same way the Egyptians have done for centuries. The Egyptians are famed for their warmth and hospitality and you’ll meet plenty of characters on your adventure. There are many different operators which offer these types of trip, many include overnight stays along the way.

The Red Sea

Snorkelling in the Red Sea is unforgettable. The coral reefs are home to hundreds of species of fish of all different colors including rainbow fish as well as turtles and even dolphins if you go there between March and November. It always provides one of the highlights of any family holiday to Egypt.

The Egyptian Museum

Discover the treasures of the Pharaohs. The Egyptian Museum is just one of the many fantastically-organized museums which help to tell Egypt’s unique story. The varied, extensive collection of artefacts has over 120,000 items. One highlights is the ‘Mummy Room’ and if this doesn’t give you the heebie-jeebies, you can also visit the Mummification Museum in Luxor.

Camel Rides

There are plenty of opportunities to ride Camels around Egypt and kids love it. There are also chances to ride horses and donkeys. Some of the best places to do this away from the most touristic areas. Donkeys are more suitable for younger children as they are steadier and smaller.
