Honeymoon in Egypt



In the old days people wanted their marriage to start on a sweet note. It was therefore customary for newlyweds to drink mead for a month. Mead was a drink made from honey. The "moon" refers to the period of thirty days or one month that the couple was expected to drink the mead. After the first month, the couples came face to face with reality; they realized that their affection, like the moon, would wax and wane. By the way, the word "honeymoon" need not always be used to refer to the holiday that newly married couples take immediately after marriage

Cannot miss a ZAFFA

The ancient Egyptians were the first civilization to regard marriage as a legal relationship. Marriage in ancient Egypt was considered a religious duty and prophetic instructions can be found in the Quran and the Holy Bible .

Marriage is considered the most important event in their lives and is a way to protect their cultural beliefs of this sacred relationship.

In the Egyptian culture, the zaffa wedding march, is a musical procession of bendir drums, bagpipes, horns, belly dancers and men carrying flaming swords. This announces that the marriage is about to begin. This is an ancient tradition, possibly predating Islam.

You cannot miss a ZAFFA. They are so noisy; you can hear them from a distance! They play rhythmic popular music, with horns blasting and full of people noisily clapping and singing. Customarily, there is also the women’s distinctive ‘shriek’ of traditional joy – the zaghareet.

When the procession reaches its destination, there is usually a party, more loud noises and then dinner.

Aswan is a the pace of life is much slower and the town is small enough to explore on foot. In Aswan the Nile  is at its most picturesque, with golden sand dunes running down to the water's edge and scores of white-sailed feluccas gliding around the islands. The bazaar runs the whole length of town and is crammed with shops and stalls selling everything imaginable - a great place to hone your haggling skills. 








In the morning there is the option to take a flight to Abu Simbel to see the magnificent  monuments there (for further details, see below). In the afternoon board your private felucca  for a sunset cruise around the beautiful local islands and enjoy a romantic dinner on board.   The Temples at Abu Simbel are one of the highlights of any visit to Egypt and considered unmissable by many travellers. Deep in the heart of the desert, miles from the nearest habitation is a gigantic monolith out of which are carved four colossal statues – each one the seated figure of Ramses II, one of Ancient Egypt’s greatest pharaohs. Built in the 13th century BC, the temples remained totally hidden by sand until 1813, and were almost destined to be submerged again, 150 years later, by the rising waters of Lake Nasser – a man-made lake  formed after the building of the Aswan High Dam. Remarkably, a massive UNESCO project dismantled the entire temple and the cliff out of which it was carved, and reassembled it on higher ground, redirecting the magnificent stare of Ramses II across Lake Nasser's blue waters. It is still possible to see just how close  they came to being submerged by the watermarks around the base of the statues. Please note that you can pre-book Abu Simbel in advance or on arrival in Egypt, please contact us for details.
