Egypt is located in the north of Africa and borders the Gaza Strip, Israel, the Gulf of Aqaba, the Red Sea, Sudan and Libya. With more than 90 million inhabitants, it is the most populous country in North Africa and the Middle East. The great majority of its people live near the banks of the Nile River, an area of around 40,000 square kilometres.
Egypt has an unusually hot, sunny and dry climate. Average temperatures are high in the north and extremely high in the rest of the country during summer, when daytime temperatures can be over 40 °C and sometimes over 50 °C.
Egypt has a long history and dates back to one of the oldest civilizations known to mankind. Exemplified by the great Pyramids, mummies covered in bandages and lost treasures awaiting discovery, this mysterious culture has fascinated visitors for centuries.
Egypt today mesmerises with its vast desert landscapes. It has the longest river in the world – the river Nile – the Red Sea, which is recognised as one of the top 5 dive destinations worldwide, and also houses a great number of cultural and historical sites waiting to be explored.
