The Foreign and Commonwealth Office have amended their travel advice for Luxor. Due to the area remaining consistently calm throughout the political unrest they are no longer advising against non essential travel to Luxor. In light of this our Nile Cruise Holidays will be operating as normal from the 28th February 2011.

Holidays to Taba Heights have been totally unaffected and are operating as normal.

There have been reports of a number of demonstrations in Cairo and other locations across Egypt over the past few days. 

African Safari Club are committed to ensuring the safety of our customers and receive regular Foreign Office Travel Advice updates.  We are also closely monitoring the situation and liaising with our Agents in Egypt who have advised us that if demonstrations occur, these are likely to predominantly be in Cairo.

Cairo is over 400 miles from Luxor and 250 miles from Taba Heights where the vast majority of our holiday programmes take place and we do not foresee that our customers will be affected.  However, our holiday itineraries will be amended to avoid any areas where demonstrations are likely to occur should our Agents feel it is necessary.
