Pharonic Egypt started around 3000 B.C. At this time it became a united country under the rule of the Pharaoh Narmer. It lasted till about 300 A.D. The last Pharaoh was a Roman emperor named Garerius. So as a civilization, Ancient Egypt flourished for more then 3000 years.

Allow me tell you a little about the land you are about to visit. It was the perfect place for one of the worlds greatest civilizations to take root and flourish. The geography around the Nile Valley provided one of the most important factors in the longevity and productivity of the culture. Surrounding the peaceful Nile valley were impenetrable obstacles that protected the Egyptians far better then any army could. To the east, invaders would have to cross mountains, desert and the Red Sea, on the west there were cliffs that gave way to a large expanse of desolate and barren desert. They were vulnerable only from the north and the south. From the north by way of the Mediterranean Sea and the Sinai Peninsula. From the south the Nile itself offered some protection in the form of cataracts or rapids in the river which made navigation difficult.
. . . . .This protection gave the Egyptians perhaps the single most important element in building a great and powerful civilization time. Time to learn agriculture and animal husbandry. Time to develope a code of laws to live by, and deities to worship. And time to create art, a beautifully written language, music and dance.
. . . . .The Nile River, along which most of the people of Egypt lived, stretches more then 4000 miles, but the Egyptians only knew about 1000 miles of it, and that was at the height of their empire. Along the river there is a thin ribbon of land that was nourished by the annual flooding of the Nile, it is lush, and many crops were crown there. The ribbon varies from a couple miles wide in some places and nonexistent in others. The Egyptians called this place Kemet “the black land” because of the richness of the soil. This is the land where the mythological Osiris taught mankind to be civilized.

This is one of a kind, this is Egypt.
