Taking a safari holiday in the deserts of Egypt has become an appealing attraction for many travellers in the region.
Travellers on flights to Egypt who are looking for something unusual to do on their trip could give a desert safari a try.
The activity has been attracting big numbers of visitors in recent times, with travellers eager to see many of the geographical and archaeological attractions which are dotted across the landscape, the Egyptian Gazette reported.
Sights visitors could see range from ancient fossils and caves through to 200,000-year-old coloured cave paintings in the Western Desert.
“From the New Valley to Sinai and Western Desert, safari desert tourism attracted large numbers in the past few years, a matter that should prompt officials to pay much more attention,” said Mahmoud Qayssuni, an environmental affairs advisor in the country.
Taking flights to Egypt could also appeal to those looking for a touch of luxury, as some of the nation’s hotels and attractions were recently nominated in the World Travel Awards.
