Roger Lord travelled with us to Egypt recently on our Dunes and Tombs tours, which takes in all the major sites and heads way out into the Western Desert. Over 18 days, he saw the pyramids, travelled the Western Desert, explored ancient temples, sailed the Nile and then made his way to Dahab and the Red Sea. Take a look at some of the great photos he sent – including a close encounter with an Egyptian mummy!
Thanks to Roger for the super photos. Click the link for more on our Dunes & Tombs tour.

The Al Bagawat Necropolis in the Kharga Oasis is one of the oldest of the Christian cemeteries in Egypt, and is made entirely of mud brick. Fascinating, but eerie! Photo courtesy of Roger Lord.
