TripAdvisor Reviews Mayourka Hotel Cairo
Travel Blogs from Cairo
Luke and I are nearing the end of our Egypt adventures, with a little over 24 hours left before heading south to Tanzania. We have spent the past two days exploring the desert, which proved to be much more interesting than it sounds. We flew from Luxor to Cairo on 1/14 and from there headed to the Bahariya Oasis, 5 hours west of Cairo in the middle of the Sahara Desert.

... up on to see Abu Simbil. This is an incredible temple that Pharoh Ramses II had built with 4 giant statues of himself on the front and then he built a smaller tone for his favorite wife Nefertari beside (yes he thought highly of himself).
