Like the first visit, I never had occasion to feel wary or unsafe, even as a single female traveler. Egypt is a wonderful place, and Egyptians are genuine, happy people who delight in seeing tourists once again walk the streets of the country they love.
Thanks to Emma’s incredible skill of combining professionalism, adventure, and friendliness whilst juggling being a guide, friend, horse owner, manager and owner, I was provided the holiday of a lifetime, which I doubt could be beaten.
So excited to announce that Life Between The Ears picked one of our photos from Luxor to showcase as this month’s feature Chronicle of the Horse / Untacked | May June 2017. I was asked to do a small interview about my back-story and life in the saddle. Such an honour!
With the launch of our new ‘Temples, Tombs and Trails of Luxor and Aswan’ holiday, we are super excited about visiting Abu Simbel. If you don’t know it by name, you will have surely seen it in pictures
As many of you know, Egypt cannot really be considered a front-runner in terms of animal welfare. However, we do have charities here that do their utmost to educate the locals, support the animals and provide free veterinary treatment for those who are unwell or injured.
Carters House has to be my favourite piece of Luxor’s amazing history. It’s almost a hidden treasure, with very few tours visiting this fantastically preserved house where Howard Carter worked and lived during his time in Egypt
As the sun glistens and creeps through the roof of our stables, through the palm leaves sheltering me and my four legged friends from the heat of the day here in Luxor, and the birds happily sing and chirp in their ever peaceful surroundings, I sometimes have to pinch myself to remind myself how lucky I am and what a good decision it was to open Ride Egypt in Luxor.
