Egypt: location: north west africa
what could be better the visiting a country where ancient kings walked and the layers of history that have shaped the modern world surround you in such a way that you can imagine what it was like all those years ago. visitors can gaze at the magnificent pyramids of giza look in wonder at the sphynx float in the saltiness of the red sea and pick up some bargains the khan al-khalili market in cairo not to mention cruising the nile river in a felucca or visiting the decidedly european-esque alexandria (where wealthy europeans used to vacation!).
egypt has so much to offer but has seen a decline in tourism in recent years – but no africa bucket list would be complete without visiting it and it remains one the best places to visit in africa.
