All about the trip
There are 14 pyramids located in Abusir belonging to ancient Egypt’s 4th dynasty. Abusir is located 2,5 kilometers north of Sakkara and about 12 km south of the pyramids of Giza. The most important pyramids at Abusir are of those of Sahure, Niuserre, and Neferirkare. The Abusir pyramids complex rarely gets the recognition it deserves, and in fact, many guidebooks and tour brochures don’t even mention it.
Be prepared to be dazzled on horseback as you visit the final resting ground for many pharaohs, nobles and other important officials, and particularly for those who lived during the time of the 5th dynasty in Egypt’s Old Kingdom era.
Our next riding stop is Sakkara Pyramids, best known for the Step Pyramid, the oldest of Egypt’s 97 pyramids built in the 3rd dynasty for King Djoser. Both Sakkara and Abusir served as cemeteries for the ancient Egyptian capital city of Memphis so both places are bursting with ancient Egyptian history.
This is a wonderful trip exploring areas unseen on many tourist trips.
