Overview

The Egypt Deluxe Egypt Eco-Luxury Adventure is the perfect trip in which to cleanse body and soul, combining the best of Cairo with the most unique of eco-lodge luxury. We begin with the sensory overload that is the country’s capital city, exploring the antiquities on display at the Egyptian Museum and, of course, partaking in that most Egyptian of traditions—shopping and bartering in the mysterious souks of the Khan el-Khalil Bazaar. The pyramids are, naturally, a must-see, and we explore not only the famed structures of Giza, but take the path less-trodden to discover those at Sakkara and Memphis as well.

We begin the process of winding down at the wonderful Siwa Oasis, located on the fringes of the Mediterranean Sea. Discover the soothing delight that is living in an artisan-created desert hideaway, a place to shun the stresses of everyday life and embrace nature. By day, marvel at how the individually crafted rooms and buildings blend seamlessly into the desert landscape, and by night your way is lit by a plethora of flickering candlelight and natural moonlight.

Here we swim in natural hot spas, once—so legend has it—the bathing spot of Queen Cleopatra, explore the local area, dine on locally grown organic food, and—quite simply—allow this very special area to gently wash away the stresses of everyday modern life.

The gorgeous Tunis village of Fayoum continues your journey to a full detox, with views to die for and further pampering of the psyche as we relax in the Palm Shadow Corner Hotel, an eco-lodge … This carefully curated trip is the perfect combination of adventure and relaxation—a once-in-a-lifetime experience that combines the frenetic with pure relaxation, leaving you fresh, revived, and providing a deliciously decadent experience not found in any other country in the world.

This adventure boasts equal shares of both relaxation and exhilaration. Explore the natural beauty of the Siwa Oasis, where Alexander the Great was declared “the son of Amun-Ra” by an oracle, thereafter considering himself divine. Travel to the city of Fayoum , all while staying at some of Egypt’s most exclusive eco lodges, with the option of neutralizing your carbon footprint.
