Overview

Take a step back in time, about 3000 years back, and get a glimpse into the ancient Egyptian culture at the Pharaonic Village. Sail on a motorized barge down a network of canals and view an impeccable recreation of life in ancient Egypt. This journey to the era of Pharaohs is brought alive by a group of actors and an immaculate reproduction of buildings, clothes and lifestyles of people in ancient Egypt. Capture the glory of historical Egypt as actors perform the role of a pharaoh, fishermen, potter, farmer, weaver and priest among others. An important landmark, the Pharaonic Village gives you an amazing insight into the culture of ancient Egypt.

Itinerary

  • In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Cairo. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Pharaonic Village situated a few kilometres from the centre of Cairo. The pharaonic era is brought alive by a group of actors, and faithful reproductions of buildings and clothing. You can sail on comfortable motorized barges down a network of canals and view incredibly accurate recreation of life in ancient Egypt. Though the city of Cairo surrounds the island, not a trace of it penetrates the thick wall of trees planted around the island. Over a hundred actors and actresses perform all the daily activities such as agriculture, pottery, sculpture and weaving among others. Everyone that would have existed in an ancient Egyptian city is present in the modern recreation, from pharaoh to fishermen, potters and priests. After enjoying a flavour of ancient Egypt, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Cairo.
