Riding in the desert
Despite the pitfalls we've mentioned under "The Pyramids of Giza", riding in the desert is a fantastic experience. Unless you relish haggling, authorized stables are a safer bet than footloose Bedouin operators.

Felucca sailing
Something as restful as sailing on the Nile in a felucca can hardly be termed an activity. Since the boatman does all the work, the only effort involved is negotiating rental rates.

Cairo is incredibly densely populated, with green spaces few and far between. Even in prosperous Mohandiseen, local residents are forced to make use of the central reservations of the main boulevards for sitting out or picnicking.

Sports: Participatory and spectator
Keeping fit in Cairo is difficult but not impossible. The expat Hash House Harriers (tel 350-5577) is one of several clubs organizing street running, best done on Gezira, Roda or the west bank Corniche, before 8am or after 10pm to avoid heavy traffic and air pollution


For millions of people the Pyramids epitomize ancient Egypt: no other monument is so instantly recognized the world over. Yet comparatively few foreigners realize that at least 97 pyramids are spread across seventy kilometres of desert, from the outskirts of Cairo to the edge of the Fayoum.

Arabic is the official language. English and French widely understood and spoken among businessmen.

Cairo has an arid desert climate, where the days are hot but the nights are relatively cool. Sandstorms are frequent in April and May. Humidity levels tend to rise come August. Winters in Egypt are great, especially in the months of February and March. The weather at this time is mild, with occasional rainfall.
