Itinerary

Day 1 Amman
One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Amman offers a fascinating mix of ancient sites and modern culture to explore.
Days 2-3 Petra
Hewn out of the rose-coloured rock face, the ancient city of Petra is one of the Middle East's most spectacular destinations.
Day 4 Wadi Rum
Full of weird and beautiful lunar-like rock formations, Wadi Rum is home to some of the most sublime desert landscape on the planet.
Days 5-6 Red Sea Beach Camp
Set on a magical stretch of the Red Sea, our beach camp is a hidden gem of fine golden sand and beautiful underwater reefs.
Day 7 Dahab
Once a simple Bedouin fishing village, Dahab has transformed into a popular tourist town, luring travellers with its excellent diving.
Days 8-9 Cairo
Wonderfully chaotic and always colourful, Cairo's dazzling array of museums, mosques and markets are a fascinating mixture of modern city and ancient wonders.
Days 10-11 Aswan
Situated on the banks of the Nile, the Nubian city of Aswan has been Egypt's southern gateway to Africa and an important trading centre since ancient times.
Day 12 Nile Felucca
Once the lifeblood of an ancient civilisation, cruise the iconic Nile on a traditional felucca and spend a night sleeping on deck under the stars.
Days 13-14 Luxor
From the spectacular temple complex of Karnak to the extraordinary hieroglyphs of the Valley of the Kings, Luxor is full of wonderfully preserved reminders of the Pharaohs.
Days 15-16 Alexandria
Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria is packed with architectural and cultural wonders, both ancient and modern.
Days 17-18 Siwa Oasis
With its extraordinarily lush vegetation and relaxed atmosphere, the desert oasis of Siwa seems a world away from the bustle of the cities.
Day 19 Bawiti
The largest settlement in the Bahariya Oasis, Bawati is famous for its palm groves, hot springs and historic monuments dating back to the New Kingdom.
Day 20 White Desert Camp
The windswept dunes and bizarre rock formations of the White Desert make this one of the most amazing and beautiful landscapes on the planet.
Days 21-22 Cairo
With such iconic sights as the Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx to explore, Cairo offers a visual masterclass of ancient Egyptian architecture.
