A trip for those that want to understand Egyptian culture, food and people.Travelling by horseback several days & exploring this mystical place on foot, tuktuk, harong, camel and boat!
Our story begins in Cairo; a city bursting with character and history, and home to over 20 million of Egypt’s people! The streets are lined with vibrant souks, bustling bazaars and the clatter of cooking utensils from local restaurants echoes through the air.
Away from the city, in two separate locations, you’ll find our stables; home to beautiful Baladi and Arab horses who will guide you on this unforgettable journey through time. We have merged some of the most amazing and well-known sites in Egypt with some that are only found off the beaten track. Our trail rides are long and often arduous so this holiday is only suitable for accomplished riders. The rides will take you deep into the heart of the desert where sprays of golden sand will cloud up behind you as you gallop past ancient ruins and rarely visited temples and tombs.
A stark contrast to Cairo, Luxor offers a far more tranquil and laid-back approach to life in Egypt and it’s also home to our main site, Ride Egypt HQ; an organic and spiritual oasis for our horses and for you. It’s here we grow all our own food for the horses and draw on all-natural produce to treat our horses’ ailments, provide them with additional power and soothe aching muscles after long trail rides and mountainous climbs.
The banks of the Nile are a short walk away and, being well known for its healing properties, it’s here you will often find our boys bathing our horses before bedding them down of an evening. Your stay in Luxor will be laden with home-cooked meals, fishing trips, incredible riding and unforgettable sightseeing in some of the Valley of the Kind’s forgotten tombs.
As the call to prayer comes in waves from all directions, the muezzins’ voices layering on top of each other, ebbing and flowing, sit back and relax as your journey through time begins.
