The life and history of Egypt was and is tied in to the moods of the Nile and its water levels. Its nurturing waters allow the desert to bloom along its banks but it can also flood at times so it is a mixed blessing.
For the visitor however, a Nile cruise allows a leisurely pace as you explore temples built by Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Start your exploration with a stay in Cairo, exploring its history as the largest of all African cities.
