Cairo - City Center & Giza

Sign in to follow this  





Cairo is the largest city in Africa and the capital of Egypt. It sits on the Nile River and is home to about 17 million residents. Founded in 969 AD, Cairo has remained the center of Egypt. The city has a desert climate so it's most enjoyable during the winter months. Just ouside the city sits Giza, the site of the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. Beyond that is endless desert.


Alabaster Mosque is situated in the Citadel of Cairo and looks over the city.


A ship passes a green oasis sitting on the Nile River.


Densely populated section of Cairo where towers sit next to lowrise buildings.


The Giza Necropolis is home to the Great Pyramids. Here's one of the 3 pyramids.


Residential towers rise on the shores of the Nile River.


If you're feeling adventurous , off-roading in the sand dunes is a popular activity with tourists.


The Sphinx in Giza, a mythological creature with a feline body and a human head.
