Egypt on the Mediterranean sits on the crossroads between North Africa and the Middle East and is straddled by Libya, Sudan and Israel.

The name of this fascinating country alone conjures up visions of the ancient pyramids cast against a spectacular sunset, the Nile drifting peacefully by the Great Pyramid of Giza. The romance of the desert beckons travellers to spectacular Sharm El Sheik, on the Red Sea. Internationally-renowned for some of the world’s best diving, and for its beaches, not to mention its vibrant nightlife, Sharm El Sheik grows ever more popular a destination with British travellers.

With all these delights in store, it’s understandable if, with all the excitement as you prepare for your journey, that you overlook the potential health risks inherent in overseas travel.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU

Further Travel Health Advice for Egypt

Egypt enjoys one of the most pleasant climates in the world…with basically moderate days and cool nights. Coastal temperatures around the Mediterranean and Red Sea can rise to 30 or over, between October and May.

Egyptian cuisine is eclectic, delicious, and fresh. A huge variety of fresh fruit and vegetables is available. If you purchase fruit or vegetables at a market, it is strongly recommended that you peel them before eating. Water is safe in most Metropolitan areas, but it is always best to use bottled water.

Cities and major tourist towns have plentiful hospitals and private clinic facilities. Your best choice is still a private clinic.

Do protect yourself with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and activities.

Always be mindful of the power of the Egyptian sun. Take care when participating in water sports, hiking tours, or any activity that might take you out of your normal comfort zone. Stay hydrated and rest occasionally during the heat of the day.
