Its a HUGE country so scenery varies but really worth seeing. The Cairo Museum with 6,000 year old are is mind-blowingly great, worth a special trip. Pyramids etc ...

Cairo is the only city on earth I refused to ride. Parked bike at hotel for 2 weeks and used $3 taxis. It is the worst traffic and driving on the planet, no hype. But worth going there! Wonderful crazy.

Its not a driving challenge, roads are OK and on flat desert. Its about seeing the highly varied country.

Sinai is fantastic and brilliantly developed by Egypt. Red Sea has amazing scuba and quaint resorts for cheap. See our blog.

Unlikely to get a Saudi visa (I failed) so crossing to Israel - Jordan - Syria-Turkey is the best way out. There are no boats out, I searched for weeks. terrorism wins.

Evidently going down the Nile is brilliant but we did not have time.

Borders are corrupt as hell, have your papers 120% in perfect order and keep Euro cash handy. But once in the country its cheap and so interesting, beast African Arab place to see. Ive seen them all. Riding there is great if not a skill challenge.

If you can ride Cairo you are a better man than I. Even taxi drivers are forever getting lost, its a nutsoid maze and one constant close call. But go there anyway. Fantastic.
