Arrival in Cairo!
After everyone completes their arrival and checks into the hotel, you will enjoy a welcoming group dinner on your first night in Kemet.
A private airport escort waiting upon Arrival: Our representative will meet and assist you, transfer by A/C vehicle to 5-star accommodation in Giza.
Exploring the Giza Plateau
Early in the morning, we will walk the path of the ancients under the shadows of the 3 Giza pyramids, Khufu, Khafre & Menkaure, as well as the sentinel of the ages, the Sphinx. Together, we will discover if the Pyramids were tombs or not, and spend the day exploring the Giza Necropolis.
Ascending into the Great Pyramid, we will see the King’s Chamber and experience the greater energy field of one of the most revered sites on Earth.
Later in the afternoon, we arrive back at the hotel for our dinner and a relaxing evening.
Sakkara and Dahshour
At a designated time, we’ll join in the lobby to visit Sakkara, which holds the complex of the Step Pyramid. We will enter into the galleries of Serapium in Sakkara to see The Lesser Vaults and The Greater Vaults of this underground chamber, as well as the place of the Sakkara Tables.
We continue to the oldest medical investigation table in Kemet and discover the oldest technique of sound healing together. Our van will take us a short distance to Dahshour for a glimpse at an image of the heavens, depicted by the Red and Bent Pyramids.
As we get back to the hotel, we will take our dinner and prepare for Osiris’s Land, Abydos.
Abydos, The Land of Osiris
We take an early morning flight to Sohag, then we have a beautiful drive through the agricultural lands of Abydos (45 min). Upon arrival, we will embark on a transformative visit to the Abydos Temple. This is the oldest pilgrimage site on the Earth and on this site, we will see the oldest reliefs of the Flower of Life in the World. After connecting with these ancient depictions of sacred hieroglyphs and texts, we will walk 5 minutes to the hotel. In the evening, you will be invited to participate in a traditional Egyptian Zār Ceremony after a delicious traditional meal.
The Zār is a trance religious ceremony that uses drumming and dancing to cure an illness thought to be caused by a demon. It is technically prohibited by Islam as a pagan practice, however this ritual continues to be an essential part of the Egyptian culture. The Zār provides a unique form of relief to women in strict patriarchal societies.
Dendera – Waset-Luxor
Gathering the heka of The Land of Osiris, we will journey to Dendera arriving at mid-day, to visit the halls of the oracle arts and cosmology hieroglyphs in Dendera Temple Complex. Here we bond with Hathor; the manifestation of motherhood, and Sekhmet, the manifestation of a healer.
To end this day, we will continue on to Waset (Luxor) and stay there for three beautiful nights along the Nile.
Come together in the morning to visit the Valley of the Kings and learn more about the Holy Book of the Ancient Egyptians. We will look at how they carved their tombs and the different burial depictions in each one.
Our lunch will be served behind the Colossi of Memnon, then we’ll drive to Hatshepsut Temple to witness the power of the first woman ruler and explore more about the Matriarch System during ancient Egyptian times.
Dinner will be enjoyed at a local restaurant in Luxor.
Karnak – Luxor
Meet in the hotel’s lobby to be taken to Karnak Temple Complex, the second largest temple after Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia. We will have a private visit to Sekhmet’s Chapel. Sekhmet was the oldest Healer on Earth. She could make you sick and she could equally heal you.
For the afternoon, our participants have the option to enjoy a Sufi meditation at Abou El Haggag Mosque (depending on the availability). We would transfer back to the hotel.
Later that day, we visit the Avenue of the Shinx and Luxor Temple, which Egyptians call the Temple of Man and Temple of Three Religions; The Ancient Egyptian, Christianity and Islam. Here we can see a mosque, a church and ancient Egyptian temple in the same area while getting to know more about the ancient Egyptian mythology of Luxor.
Start the day by transferring to Esna to join the Dahabiya.
The Dahabiya is a sailboat with a maximum of 8 beautiful cabins, which provides privacy for everyone onboard. This type of boat has no draft, so we can go onto the islands off the Nile and explore them, along with going into the villages to interact with the local community of each temple space. You can watch birds and animals onboard your exquisitely themed “Dahabiya of the Black Land”.
When an Ancient Egyptian man saw the Nile mud, or ‘Black Mud’, on the banks of the Nile, he believed that this land was the spark of agricultural civilization. The Nile is the only river which flows backwards, which we will learn more about while sailing past its banks on the Dahabiya.
We will have a meal aboard our vessel for dinnertime and settle onto the soothing waters of the Nile River.
Take a horse drawn carriage ride to visit Edfu temple to bask in the light of spirit. It will bring us higher for interacting with the Father of the Sky, Horus, the manifestation of the sky.
We will talk in depth about the creation story of the ancient Egyptian Pantheon and the conflict between the spiritual part and material part inside each one of us. This is the invisible meaning of all mysteries.
We will go back to the boat for an authentic Egyptian dinner on board.
Relaxing Day on the Nile
You will feel all the four elements inside you as we sail along: Air, Earth, Water and Fire. The water element constitutes the 4 elements of Astrology, which we will contemplate and meditate on while relaxing on the Nile.
Dinner will take place on an island with live music, and emanate the frequencies of the water to expand your Throat Chakra energy.
Visit the massive Kom Ombo Temple Complex of Sobek and Horus: Union of Polarities. We’ll learn more about the struggle between the spiritual and material part inside each of us and how the temple mirrors that concept. Here we can see the 2nd relief of the Flower of Life in Kemet.
Aswan and Agilika
Experience the majestic Philae Temple to be surrounded by the knowledge of the woman, as Isis’s land emanates feminine wisdom and love from its walls. According to Ancient Egyptians beliefs, women have four forms represented in four different Neter manifestations: Isis, Hathour, Sekhmet and Bastet. We will explore this divine feminine wisdom presented to us.
Complete the trip with our last beautiful traditional dinner together on the Dahabiya.
