Why Visit Egypt with a Student Group
Egypt’s rich history combined with its diverse landscape makes it the perfect destination to bring a student group. Egypt is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. The Great Pyramids, tombs, and statues are the only surviving ancient wonder of the world. To this day, this wonder of the world continues to attract the attention of archaeologists, researchers, travelers, and students.
Not only is Egypt distinguished by its rich history, it is also home to the longest river in the world, the Nile River. The Nile River extends 4,160 miles (6,695km). Visitors can take a cruise along the Nile and explore different points of the river, most notably Luxor and Aswan.
After viewing the Great Pyramids and sailing down the Nile, visitors can explore the vast desert and beautiful beaches. Activities include snorkeling among the corals and fish, or camping under the desert night sky. By seeing sights like the Great Pyramids, the Nile River, and diverse natural landscapes, students will have a unique opportunity to see their history textbooks truly come alive!
Best Time to Visit Egypt
Some travel experts say that the best time to visit Egypt is between October and April, when temperatures are lower, but still pleasant across the country. This makes exploring the busy streets of Cairo, visiting the Pyramids in the desert, and exploring ancient tombs more comfortable.
Others suggest that the summer season from May to September, although hot, is also a great time to visit. Despite the heat, there tends to be a bit of a breeze on the Nile, making a river cruise a good choice for this season. Another bonus of traveling in the summer months is fewer tourists!
