Getting around

From camel to plane to felucca, Egypt is equipped with numerous transport options. Congestion and chaos can be a bit anxiety-provoking on long road ventures, but with a bit of courage and flexibility, you can access most areas without too much effort. As for timetables and infrastructure, the country seems to run on magic. There are few regulations and little consistency, but somehow, people always seem to get where they want to go.

Restricted areas


Potentially risky are Egyptian border areas near Libya and Sudan, as well as off-road bits of Sinai, where landmines (usually marked by barbwire) may exist.
