Discover our Egypt!

Bringing Egypt closer to you.

Egypt is the most populous country in the Arab world and the second-most populous on the African Continent. Nearly 100% of the country's 58 million people live in Cairo and Alexandria, elsewhere on the banks of the Nile, in the Nile delta, which fans out north of Cairo and along the Suez Canal. These regions are among the world's most densely populated, containing an average of over 1,540 persons per square kilometer (3,820 per sq. mi.).Map of Egypt

Language : Arabic (official), English and French widely understood by educated classes Major Religions: Muslim (mostly Sunni) 94% (official estimate), Coptic Christian and other 6% (official estimate), Ethnic groups: Eastern Hamitic stock (Egyptians, Bedouins, Berbers) 99%, Greek, Nubian, Armenian, other European 1%.

Discovering Egypt is much more than reading information about Pyramids, tours and monuments. It is about the luxury hotels and resorts, it is about romantic Nile Cruises on festive river boats, Red Sea scuba diving, hot night spots, a night at the grand opera and it is a cultural experience like none you have ever experienced.

Egypt is probably the world's oldest civilization having emerged from the Nile Valley around 3,100 years ago. Over Egypt's history, early Greeks, Romans and others went there just for fun, and to see the wonders of some of mankind's earliest triumphs. For thousands of years, it has been the playground of emperors and kings, and we hope you will take the time to find out why.

Egypt Geography

Egypt covers an area of approximately 1,001,450 sq km (386,662 sq mi) in northeastern Africa, its northern coastline along the Mediterranean Sea , its eastern coastline along the Red Sea and touching the State of Israel in the Sinai. Libya shares its western border, Sudan its southern border.

Egypt is overwhelmingly a desert country bisected by the River Nile. Over 90% of the land area is formed by a convergence of deserts - the Libyan Desert to the west, the Sahara and Nubian Deserts to the south and the Arabian Desert to the east. There are oases scattered across this wasteland and a swathe of land along the Suez Canal which is cultivated, but it is mainly the land fed by the River Nile - the Nile valley and the Nile Delta - that is both habitable and arable.

The Sinai Peninsula is formed of sand desert and spectacular mountains rising as high as 2,637m (8,652ft) above Red Sea level.
