Egypt - Cairo Outskirts & the Delta (Chapter)
This is the Cairo Outskirts & the Delta chapter from Lonely Planet’s Egypt guidebook.
Typical Egypt itineraries rarely take in the area right around Cairo but, thanks to modern transportation, it’s easy to get from Cairo’s confines to open green fields; ancient sites you’ll have all to yourself; modern Coptic monasteries; and the not-for-the-squeamish action of a live camel market with camels that come from deepest Sudan.
- chill out in the funky arts colony of Tunis
- immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of the Birqash Camel Market
- pile onto a boat filled with merry day trippers to see the Nile Barrages at Qanater
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Desert Environs, Saqqara, Memphis & Dahshur, Al-Fayoum, Wadi Natrun, The Nile Delta, Birqash Camel Market, Nile Barrages, Tanta, Zagazig & Bubastis and Tanis.
