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.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

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.
