Egypt has made a triumphant comeback in recent years, re-establishing itself as an alluring, exciting, and friendly travel destination. Surround yourself with contemporary comforts, outstanding cuisine, and mesmerising sights  as you holiday in one of the world’s oldest and most vibrant nations, a favourite of intrepid travellers from ancient times to the modern era.

Glide along the Nile River and experience breathtaking desert landscapes aboard one of our luxury river cruisers, or travel in the company of your personal A&K Egyptologist as you discover the eerie underground catacombs of Alexandria’s Kom El Shoqafa and the iconic Pyramids of Giza.

Abercrombie & Kent has set the standard for luxury travel in Egypt for more than three decades. All of our journeys are carefully designed to immerse you in Egypt’s ancient history while treating you to our signature comfort, safety, and style.

Best time to travel to Egypt

Egypt’s hot and sunny climate makes it suitable for year-round travel, although most choose to holiday between October and April when temperatures are moderate. Travellers visiting during Egypt’s summer months (June through September) will enjoy fewer crowds but must contend with sweltering temperatures, scheduling sightseeing during the early morning and late afternoon to avoid the hot midday sun. Egypt’s peak season falls over December and January.

Award-winning luxury holidays in Eygpt

With tourism on the rise, now is the perfect time to plan your visit to Egypt. All of our journeys are paired with specially trained, experienced A&K Egyptologists to accompany you for the duration of your stay. Your guide will see to it you enjoy Egyptian experiences you won’t find anywhere else, taking you behind the scenes of an archaeological dig or visiting Queen Nefertari’s tomb, only recently opened to visitors.  

No Egyptian holiday would be complete without a visit to the 4,500-year-old Pyramids of Giza. More than 2 million stone blocks make up this impressive structure, the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still in existence. Descend into the ancient tombs of New Kingdom pharaohs in the hidden Valley of the Kings. Stroll through the colourful marketplaces and bazaars of Cairo and marvel at the mosques and minarets. Sail in a traditional felucca around tiny islands in the Nile and venture to little known temples. Discover Cleopatra’s enchanting world on the Mediterranean coast and uncover stories of Australian diggers at El Alamein. Egypt is vast and varied, with endless opportunity for adventure and indulgence.
