Upon arrival at Cairo, you'll proceed to the Giza Plateau where the only remaining wonders of the ancient world, the Pyramids of Giza still stand. Enjoy panoramic views from the Western Plateau, and then stop at the middle pyramid where you can explore the site on your own. Continue down the valley to visit the mighty mysterious Sphinx. Drive through rural areas towards the awaiting four-wheel drive air-conditioned jeep that will take you for a drive into the desert, towards where a camel caravan is waiting for you. Experienced camel drivers will lead your camel on a trip in the desert in caravan formation. Feel the desert wind in your hair and sway to the motion of your camel as it strides in a leisurely pace through the beauty of a desolate and harsh environment. After a country club-style lunch, continue south through verdant countryside to the oldest cemetery, Sakkara. The world's first monumental stone building, the Step Pyramid of King Zoser, built almost 5,000 ago, still stands here. After visiting the complex, continue to one of the funerary chambers built nearby, to visit one of them. A stop at a papyrus institute will introduce you to the process of paper-making from reeds, an art discovered by the ancient Egyptians. Time will be allocated for souvenir shopping before the return drive to Alexandria.
Note: Participants must weigh less than 250 lbs. and be in good physical condition. Children should ride the camel with an adult companion. Not recommended for guests with back/neck injuries, recent surgery and/or pregnant women.
