North Africa holidays

Whether it is glorious desert safaris, spectacular scuba diving or simply delving into history, Northern Africa has something for everyone.

While the great pyramids of Egypt reveal the magnificent lifestyles of ancient times, the Nile and the corals of the Red Sea provide the secrets of Egypt’s wildlife, marine life and culture. Morocco is full of contrasts with the Atlas Mountains providing a snow-capped backbone and the cities of Taroudant and Zagora offering a gateway to the desert. Marrakech feeds the senses with its bustling souq.

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.

Kate Hitchen

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way. In fact, I am never happier than when I’m cycling, trekking or simply eating my way through a country! My heart and head regularly pull me east, notably to India but I may also be found wandering through the galleries and piazzas of Italy or daydreaming about fresh ceviche in the far west.

Thank you so much for assisting us with all of the planning. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to Egypt again. There is so much to see there.

Egypt

The Oberoi Philae is just out of this world. We had a gorgeous cabin and watched the Nile slip timelessly by whilst enjoying superb food and top class service.

Oberoi Philae - Egypt

We loved Egypt, mesmerised by the amazing pyramids at Giza and seeing them from our beautiful room at the Marriott Mena House. Despite the unbelievable traffic in Cairo mixed up with intrepid donkeys, horses and carts, we managed to get to all the sites with our first-rate driver and great guide. It was a fantastic experience due to Steppes first-rate planning and knowing what we wanted.

Egypt

Overall another amazing trip from Steppes Travel. We saw so many different sights and had so many new experiences. Would always highly recommend Steppes.

Our guide in Cairo was obviously one of the best and did wonders for our knowledge of the ancient history of Egypt.

Egypt

We are back now and I just wanted to thank you for your excellent planning and arrangements for what turned out to be a wonderful - albeit short - holiday! Without exception the service we received from your agents was terrific: we felt we got the total 5-star treatment! All the airport arrivals, departures and transfers were handled superbly and the service left us feeling very well cared for.

Egypt

I really felt like Tom Frost listened and did his very best to meet my demands.  Very soon I was trusting him implicitly and placing a high value on his advice.  I am so glad I did!

Egypt

The choice of accommodation was absolutely excellent throughout! Mohamed Saad, our guide from Luxor onwards, was outstanding and should be recommended strongly. We also hired an ornithological expert ( Shaban ) for a morning - excellent.

Egypt

The Oberoi Philae was fantastic in every respect.
