Family holiday in Egypt

Family vacation in the Red Sea!

Thanks to the fantastic interest, we have decided to designate another week as a family fun trip! We have long known that our own kids love these family safaris and insist on going on one of our trips every year in Egypt with Andromeda or Cassiopeia. They nag and beg until we give in graciously :-). However by now other families’ children are just as keen on coming with us. As a result, we have opened up another week for families since the other date is already fully booked. Join us in August for an unforgettable weeklong Red Sea summer vacation in the Red Sea!

Family vacation in the Red Sea!The variety of programs is endless. To start with, we take a bit of a different route than usual by starting to head north and stopping at uninhabited islands and lagoons where the water is shallow and perfect for children to enjoy as well. The white sandy islands boast inner bays and lagoons with shallow waters where children can bathe and frolic and adults can enjoy various water sports like surfing, kite surfing, supping, etc. Diver dads and moms can dive of course, granted not as many times as they would on a hard-core diving safari but as a bonus, dives are included in the boat rate! You can enjoy all kinds of water sports throughout the entire trip.

One thing you will definitely not have to do is hurry. No time constraints when you have to be ready and dressed, when to leave, when to come back, when to eat, when to hurry, etc. Everything and everybody can go at their own pace and you can turn off your auto pilot and fly by the seat of your pants, so to speak. 🙂

Family Holiday in the Red SeaThe thing that you will definitely have is buffet-style meals 3 times a day with lots of fruits and snacks. Don’t forget your baby monitors as you will need them to be able to join the late-night parties. There is no minimum or maximum age limit. Everybody is welcome who wants to spend a week with family surrounded by nature and sea and away from the rush and the noise of the world.

Something we can’t promise but there is a very good chance of – dolphins! Last year we were able to swim with them as they played around our boat for an hour.
