The first day is very laid back. Take your time to settle in, relax with a drink, and take in the views of the pyramids and Spinx from the hotel.
Meet the staff, and then have a delicious rooftop dinner, complete with phenomenal views. You will be treated to a Sound and Light Show as you enjoy your meal. After a relaxed evening and good nights sleep you will be well rested for the first day of riding!
Day 2 - Giza Pyramids + Egyptian Museum
Now the adventure really starts!
Meet the horses and saddle up for an exhilarating ride to the Pyramids of Giza! By the time you get there you will have completely and utterly have fallen in love with your horse.
You will have long gallops and exhilarating races across the sand in the desert on the way.
Dismount in Giza and explore the incredible history while the horses rest. Get up close to the Great Pyramid and the famous Sphinx on a fascinating tour.
Lunch will be the national dish kosheri, followed by a visit to the Egyptian Museum, containing the largest collection of pharaoh antiques, mummies, sarcophagi, papyrus, and much more.
Ride back to the hotel and watch a once-in-a-lifetime sunset on the roof before dinner.
Day 3 - Saqqara, Dashur + Abusir Pyramids
The morning is spent visiting historical sites south of Giza, starting with the Step Pyramid, which is the oldest in the world.
The Step Pyramid was built around 4,700 years ago for Pharoah Djoser, and is one of the most iconic monuments in Egypt.
The next stop is Dashur, where you will explore inside the burial chamber of the Red Pyramid and also visit the unique “Bent” Pyramid.
In the afternoon it's time to head to the next destination, with a short, one-hour flight to Luxor. Settle in to your new accommodation in the peaceful village of Ramlah, near the Nile River.
Day 4 - Habu Temple + Ramesseum Ride
After a hearty breakfast, meet the Luxor horses, and your new ride!
Then saddle up for a full day of riding and sightseeing. Trot and canter along the Nile River through lush green fields, and ride through village streets.
Ride up to the impressive Colossi of Memnon for an exceptional photo-opportunity on your way to Medinet Habu Temple.
The temple is dedicated to the ancient Egyptian Sun God, Amun. After lunch, it's time for a ride to Ramesseum.
Ramesseum is a large and impressive temple complex built by Ramses II.
After the tour and a ride back home, an authentic home cooked dinner will be served at the stables.
Day 5 - Mount Thebes + Desert Camping
Today is a full day of riding, taking you from the Nile River Banks, all the way to Mount Thebes, and ending with the unique experience of sleeping under the stars in the desert!
Today is an early start, but you'll wake up easily with the air in your face as you canter between fields of banana trees and past the ancient village of Old Qurna.
Eat lunch in a desert cave, then remount as the ride continues up Mount Thebes, where you can take in breath-taking views of Luxor and the Nile, before exploring the hills around the Valley of the Kings.
Cook a traditional Egyptian dinner over an open fire and experience a magical desert sunset with Egyptian tea and music, before spending the night in a Bedouin tent. This is a night you will never forget!
Day 6 - Desert to Nile Ride + Valley of the Kings
Have breakfast next to your horse at sunrise, while watching hot air balloons float beautifully above the mountains.
We then saddle up for a ride through the desert and mountains, eventually reaching village streets and farmland before arriving at the stables.
After lunch, enjoy a bit of relaxation time.
This afternoon's trip is an absolute must-see: The Valley of the Kings!
Be transported back in time and let history come alive as you explore the tombs of famous Egyptian rulers.
In the evening, you’ll relax with a memorable cruise on the Nile, while watching the sunset and tucking in to some delicious food.
Day 7 - Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple + Banana Island
Take a water taxi across the river to the East Bank of the Nile, to reach tours of the Luxor and Karnak Temples.
These temples are some of Luxor’s finest and cannot be missed! Back on the west bank, we saddle up for an afternoon on horseback.
We ride through the farmland along the Nile River to Banana Island, where we have lunch with the horses. You’ll be treated to feteer, a delicious pastry-like bread served with an array of honey, molasses, and feta cheese. With some fruit juice or Turkish coffee, you’ll be fully refreshed for more riding!
Canter along fields of sugar cane and delve into the desert for invigorating gallops.
End the day and celebrate your last night with a lively barbecue at the stable with a fire, drinks, and music.
Day 8 - Ma'salaam, Goodbye!
If you have the time before your flight, tack up for the final time for a casual morning ride.
Otherwise, relax at the stable with the horses, take a dip in the pool, or pick up some last-minute souvenirs to take home.
By now you will have well and truly bonded with your horse, and made lots of everlasting memories together.
It's time for a sad goodbye.
A transfer will take you to the Luxor Airport to catch your flight.
