Egypt

Arguably the most visited country in Africa, Egypt’s close proximity to Europe and the Middle East makes it easily accessible to travelers who flock in to see historical relics of kings and pharaohs dating back thousands of years.

Fresh off the heels of a revolution termed the “Egyptian Uprising”, Egypt’s political landscape has changed dramatically, and Matador has been publishing ground-level perspectives and facts to help readers understand this uprising on a deeper level.

In addition, we’re also publishing articles and photo essays that cover other aspects of the country – cruising down the Nile (Africa’s longest river), biking through the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, diving in the Red Sea, exploring the pyramids of Giza and the Eastern Desert, as well as ways of avoiding all the tourist traps mentioned above.
