Journey along the lifeline of Egyptian civilization, sightseeing ancient temples, tombs, local villages, and farms on a Nile river cruise. Located in Africa's northeast, the Nile is the longest river in the world! Measuring 4,160 miles (6,955 km), the river flows north from Lake Victoria through Uganda, Sudan, and Egypt, passing rainforests, mountains, savannas, swamps, and desert landscapes before culminating in the fertile Nile Delta and draining into the Mediterranean Sea. Sail past 5,000 years of history on an incredible Nile river cruise vacation through Egypt.
Most of the pharaohs of the 18th and 19th Dynasties in the New Kingdom (circa 1570-1080 BC) were interred in the parched Valley of the Kings, near Luxor and the Nile River in Egypt.The individual royal tombs were chiseled deep into steep, solid-rock slopes and, after the burial ceremonies, "permanently" sealed.
Egypt is the land in which civilization was nurtured. Steeped in history, it evokes memories of a glorious past. For millenniums, Egypt was and still is the cradle of civilization; it's rich in history and monuments proof of the heritage of humanity. En-route between Aswan and Luxor sightseeing on a Nile River cruise ship is the only way to appreciate the mysteries of Kom Ombo, Edfu and Esna.
