      About This Sokhna Tour

      Your modern nomad tour of Egypt begins when you take a contemporary motor coach to the Western Plateau of Giza. Gaze upon the Mycerinus, Chephren, and Cheops pyramids, the last of which is the only surviving ancient wonder of the world. Explore these engineering marvels, the Great Sphinx, and the Valley Temple of Khafre when you stop near the necropolis, giving you time to walk like an Egyptian…traveler, that is.

      Head next to the Sakkara Country Club, where your combined four-wheel-drive and camel adventure begins. Feel your adrenaline rise as you zip through the desert before relaxing on a leisurely camel caravan tour. Called the "ships of the desert," they've faithfully served humans for 3,000 years. Life in the desert for Bedouin nomads wouldn't exist without them. They provide sustenance and transportation – plus, they're a hoot to ride.

      Take this opportunity to enjoy the moment. Later, indulge in a tempting buffet lunch upon your return to this genuine oasis. Board a coach, then discover the funerary Step Pyramid of Sakkara, devoted to King Djoser and considered the oldest large-scale cut construction in the world.

      Returning to Cairo on the coach, you'll head to the Papyrus Institute where you will observe the process of how reeds from the Nile are transformed into the prized textured paper. Finally, buy some fun knickknacks for the folks back home. Just not a camel – they're a little tough to get through customs.

      One hump or two?

      In Egypt, you will only see the one-humped dromedary camel, also known as the Arabian camel, not the two-humped Bactrian camel. So what's in that hump? Fat, which becomes an essential energy source – handy for the long treks across the desert where water and food are scarce. The hump size can change, depending on the camel's food intake. Incredibly, a camel can survive a week or more without water and several months without food.
