Explore history in Egypt – World War I tours, 2014 – 90th anniversary

2014 is the 90th anniversary of the beginning of WWI. Nature Travel will offer special tours of Egypt including all the major locations of the Great War.

These tours are for anyone interested in history, and especially for the people whose ancestors may have fought in Egypt – Italians, Germans, French, British, Australian, New Zealand, and Indians were among those who came to Egypt / Jordan and Israel (then Palestine) to fight or to be trained before joining forces in Europe.

Egypt served as a base for British actions during the Great War, and significant campaigns in the area included:
Sinai and Palestine Campaigns

Nature Travel already offers tours to most of the locations in Egypt, Jordan and Israel that were significant in these campaigns, and will be offering tailor made tours specifically for the 90th anniversary, featuring more key sites.
