Sahara Desert – Epic Morocco

Let’s start with a big one. The Sahara is the world’s largest hot desert, spanning across pretty much the entirety of North Africa and crossing the borders of ten countries. It’s an unfathomably vast landscape famous the world over, but many travellers don’t think to make the most of the region’s serene, otherworldly beauty. That’s not the case on our 11-day Epic Morocco trip, which has an itinerary spanning from bustling cities to the heights of the Atlas Mountains and, yes, the Sahara itself. Your time in the desert will include a visit to a rural Gnawa village, where you’ll learn about this people’s spiritual music and unique dancing methods. You’ll tuck into a traditional Moroccan lunch before zooming across to our desert campsite. Here we’ll spend an evening wine tasting and stargazing, seemingly a world a way from reality, before waking early the following morning for a sunrise camel ride across the shapely dunes of the Sahara.

The Sphinx of Giza in Egypt

Giza – Ultimate Egypt

We’re predicting this classic bucket-list destination to be one of the most popular throughout 2024, in no small part thanks to the exciting opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum. This hotly anticipated addition to Egypt’s sightseeing scene – arguably the most significant in a few thousand years – is expected to breathe new life into a place that has fascinated curious travellers for centuries upon centuries. Entry to the museum is included in this trip, which spends a full day exploring the iconic wonders of Giza, most notably the Pyramids and Sphinx, of course. Ancient wonder doesn’t stop there, as we cruise down the Nile to explore the temples, tombs and ruins of Luxor and Aswan, too.
