Premier Holidays has added a series of Egypt escorted tours in its second edition Faraway brochure.


The operator has also added Zanzibar and made changes to the Namibia and Botswana extensions from South Africa.


Contracts manager John Parker said: “Given the success we’ve had in other areas including China, Australia, New Zealand and Indochina, these new tours to Egypt have been created to give our clients that once in a life time experience.”


The 11 night Wonders of Egypt includes seven nights cruising the Nile from Luxor to Aswan and four nights in Cairo visiting the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza.


Parker added: “Namibia and Botswana have also been revamped and are both now offered as an extension from South Africa.


Based on increased demand, the new Dune and Desert Adventure tour in Namibia, which includes sightseeing to the Namib Desert and the popular sand dunes at Sossusvlej, has been added.


Zanzibar has also been added for the first time, a destination which Parker believes is a “perfect extension” to a South Africa holiday.


The new South African and Zanzibar tour, which starts from just £2,199 per person, includes accommodation in Cape Town, Kruger and Zanzibar, flights, transfers, a Cape Town tour and safari tour in Kruger.
