Incentive is now back!

Incentive is now Back to Egypt

Emeco Travel recently entertained a group of 52 delegates from Nissan Group Australia, who visited Egypt on a one-week incentive.

Emeco Travel managed all functions for the group. This included a private dinner at the Habu Temple, located on the West Bank of the Nile at Luxor. The Habu Temple is the impressive mortuary temple of Ramses III. Here, the group was treated to a sumptuous meal and the chance to explore the temple at leisure. Other activities included a dinner by the Nile at the Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah. The five-star hotel boasts a Nile-side location on quiet El Gezirah Island in Zamalek, Downtown Cairo. The Nissan Group also enjoyed dinner by the pool at the Four Seasons and an Italian feast at the JW Marriott.

In addition, Emeco Travel welcomed three back-to-back groups from a multinational oil company in May. All three groups stayed at the five-star Sofitel Taba on the Red Sea. Emeco Travel was brought in to handle all their land arrangements and activities during their stay. Each of the three groups enjoyed the same itinerary, which included a 4x4 jeep safari to Abou Galoum to explore the Sinai Mountains and ended with a BBQ lunch under a white tent overlooking the sea. The groups also went on a sea trip on board two sailing boats to explore Taba’s tropical reefs.

To finish, the groups enjoyed a gala dinner at Castle Zaman, which is located on the top of the hill overlooking the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba. Available exclusively for groups, Castle Zaman was built using ancient construction techniques using only local materials. Reclaimed wood was used in all construction and furniture while the chandeliers and lighting fixtures were handcrafted from recycled glass. Castle Zaman served the groups a family-style menu, which included meats and fish prepared in original Egyptian earthenware. During dinner a local band kept the groups entertained, followed by a belly dancer show. A DJ kept the music going as the guests danced into the night.

 

Curfew comes to an end!

The Supreme Council of the Egyptian Armed Forces ended the curfew on the 15th of June after 118 days. In recent weeks the curfew in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez was observed from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. only. Experts assume the decision will help revive the country’s economy in different sectors. Amongst all Egypt’s cities, Cairo is best known as “sleepless city”, ending the curfew will get the city of 20 million back in shape!
