Egypt and the Nile River aboard Sunboat III
Although political unrest and economic difficulties have taken a toll on Egypt’s tourism in recent years, Travel & Leisure listed Egypt as one of “50 Places to Travel in 2018” and Gallup’s 2018 poll ranked it the safest country in Africa. This program offers the very best of Egypt aboard the superb yacht-like Sunboat III accommodating only 28 participants from SBMA and our cosponsoring organization, The National Trust for Historic Preservation. Cruise from Luxor to Abydos, Dendera, Edfu, Kom Ombo, and Aswan, before flying to Abu Simbel to enter Ramses II’s great temples. Pre- and post-cruise programs are offered in Cairo for Giza’s Pyramids and Sphinx and the Egyptian Museum. With topnotch Egyptologist guides, private access, and special experiences, this is a trip befitting such a bucket list destination.
