At Egypt Cruise Planners, we believe that health and safety are of the utmost importance when it comes to travel. That’s why we’ve put together some tips and recommendations to help you stay healthy and safe while exploring all Egypt offers.

  • Get Vaccinated
    Before traveling to Egypt, you must ensure you’re up-to-date on your vaccinations. Consult with your doctor or a travel medicine specialist to determine which vaccines you may need, such as the hepatitis A and B vaccines, typhoid vaccines, and others.
  • Stay Hydrated
    It’s important to stay hydrated while traveling in Egypt, especially in the hot and dry desert climate. Be sure to drink plenty of bottled water and avoid tap water, which may contain harmful bacteria.
  • Practice Good Hand Hygiene
    Frequent hand washing is essential to prevent the spread of illness while traveling. Carry hand sanitizer with you and use it often, especially before eating or touching your face.
  • Protect Yourself from the Sun
    The Egyptian sun can be intense, so protecting yourself from its harmful rays is important. Wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen with a high SPF rating, and seek shade during the hottest part of the day.
  • Be Careful with Food and Beverages
    To avoid foodborne illness, be cautious about what you eat and drink in Egypt. Stick to bottled water and avoid raw or undercooked foods and street food that may not have been adequately prepared or stored.
  • Take Precautions Against Insect Bites
    Mosquito-borne illnesses such as malaria and dengue fever can be risky in some parts of Egypt. Protect yourself by wearing long sleeves and pants, using insect repellent, and sleeping under a mosquito net if necessary.
  • Plan for Medical Emergencies
    Before traveling to Egypt, ensure adequate travel insurance and familiarize yourself with the local medical facilities. Carry any necessary medications with you, and always keep a list of emergency contacts and medical conditions.

By following these health tips, you can enjoy your travels in Egypt with peace of mind and stay safe and healthy throughout your trip.
