Travel to Cairo

Cairo is a sprawling, capital city that can be hard to understand and find your way around, but this treasure is surely worth the effort.

Top attractions

  • No trip to Egypt would be complete without a visit to the Great Pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure – the sole survivor of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
  • Visit the eerie past at City of the Dead, home to many ancient tombstones.
  • Bargain and shop for a diverse range of goods ranging from unusual local spices to exotic jewelry at Khan Al-Khalili market.

Air Seychelles offers six weekly direct flights from Seychelles to Abu Dhabi with onward connections to Cairo with Etihad Airways.
