Itinerary Description:

Begin your journey in Cairo at the Fairmont Nile City, where the Nile River greets you each day through your elegant floor-to-ceiling windows. Set off to see the Pyramids, the Sphinx and more wonders of the ancient world with professional, knowledgeable guides. Discover treasures of old in the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, with plenty of time to take in the sights of modern Cairo's bazaars and shopping districts.

Continue next to Luxor and the Hilton Luxor Resort and Spa. Tour the East and West Banks at Luxor, including the Temple of Karnak and the Valley of the Kings. From here, you will depart on an overnight flight east to Nairobi, Kenya and the wonders of the bush that await you.

Spend the remainder of your trip in Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve at Leleshwa Camp, an intimate tented camp just beyond the reserve. Lion, elephant and ostrich are among the many wild residents who will welcome you to camp. The days are yours to enjoy at leisure, with ample opportunity for game drives, hiking and interacting with the local Masai community before your departure.
