Begin your 4-hour tour with a late afternoon pickup from your Cairo hotel, and travel by air-conditioned vehicle to the start point, near the Giza pyramids.
Arrive at a desert camp where the horses and camels are ready and saddled up. Then, choose to make your trip either on horseback or in time-honored Egyptian style — on a camel.
After a safety briefing and riding instructions, settle on your steed, and set off across the sands behind your guide, who will accompany you the whole way. As you travel, relax into the overwhelming peace and beauty of the northern Sahara Desert, the vast wilderness that fringes Giza and the pyramids.
Head deeper into the desert over low dunes, and ride up to two high points that offer panoramic views of the pyramids. Watch as the fading rays illuminate the three pyramids in an orange glow, and capture photos or videos of the timeless scene.
Then, descend from the viewpoints and make your way back to the Bedouin-style desert camp. Here, savor a tasty Egyptian-style dinner with a friendly Bedouin family, absorbing the atmospheric desert setting as you eat and relax.
Your tour then concludes with a hotel drop-off.
