The Pharaonic Village was founded by Dr. Hassan Ragab Ph.D. An interesting fact, he was also the person who rediscovered the ancient Egyptian art of papermaking (Papyrus).
The Pharaonic Village is a historic experience not to be missed. It is a unique place where Egypt’s entire history is explained in 2-3 hours, from ancient living to modern times. The Pharaonic Village is a great introduction to Egypt, a perfect stop for anyone’s first trip to Egypt.. It is located on an island in the Nile, just 3 miles south of the center of Cairo. In this village, you are transported by floating amphitheaters, while a hundred actors and actresses demonstrate scenes from ancient Egypt (papyrus making, sculpting, home building….etc.). It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience you cannot find anywhere else. This trip is definitely one your kids will always remember!
The village also boasts a complete replica of King Tutankhamun’s tomb complete with all of his exquisite treasures as well as 12 new museums, 4 related to ancient Egypt (mummification and medicine, pyramid building, arts and beliefs, ancient Egyptian boats) and 5 museums related to other periods in Egyptian history (Cleopatra’s museum, Coptic history, Islamic civilization, Napoleon’s expedition to Egypt, Egypt’s modern history museum). There are even 3 museums related to our late three presidents, Mohamed Naguib, Nasser, and Sadat).
Children will love this village! It includes a super fun amusement park, “Tut Land”, plus an “Art Center”. Not to mention, you can go on our Yacht “Nefertari” that takes you on an unforgettable trip down the Nile.
The village is a must-see for all visitors to Egypt! It’s Open from 9 am – 6 pm daily (9 am – 9 pm from 25/6 to 31/8)
