For decades, we’ve been enjoying both modern and ancient games such as Football and even Wrestling! Which is why we’re easily captivated whenever a new or unique sport is brought to Egypt.
Horses are one of the most used animals in Egypt. They’re sometimes used for entertainment and transportation, while at other times they’re used for professional riding.
Polo games originated in Central Asia back in the 6th century! Yes, the game is that old! Which is why people are psyched to finally have Polo games taking place in Egypt!
El Gouna Beach will be hosting their second annual Polo Kings Silver Cup.
Believe it or not, this is a major event happening. People will be travelling the world for such an extraordinary event. The event is to take place on the beautiful shores of sandy Gouna under the hot sun, which makes it an even better experience that you can’t miss.
This sport was said to be strictly for Kings and Princes back in the old age, but in the modern day, anyone who has any experience and passion towards horse riding as well as playing polo is free to enter!
There’ll be six teams of three that are said to be competing in the second annual cup this year. Yikes, that’ll definitely cause more exciting rivalry for us to watch.
Not only will there be the Polo Silver Cup taking place, but there’ll also be loads of ranging activities as well as parades at the Marina! So much fun in store for you guys!
People will dress to impress and get ready for the major Gala dinner said to take place as well. You can even get pony rides!
This event will be a huge blast from the past since these are things people used to do decades ago and this sport was almost dying, which is why it is super exciting for Egypt to start doing things differently by embracing all cultures around us and reviving an old sport!
There you have it folks! Get your fanciest clothes and rest up for the event we’ve all been waiting for!

Egypt Launches New Initiative to Explore the Ancient Land
Have you guys ever found deep interest in the ancient land of Kemet that is known as Egypt today? Growing up, some of you might have had vivid dreams of becoming an archaeologist some day.
Egypt specifically is one of the hottest spots for archaeology till this very day. It is no new news that we keep finding ancient artifacts, mummies, and tombs to learn more about. You might think that your dream of becoming an archaeologist might be over due to the coronavirus pandemic, but needless to worry, because we have some amazing news for you history lovers!
Fortunate for us, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has decided to commence launching tours for the country’s most intricate and historical archaeological land sites as well as museums to allow visitors to view and enjoy the ancient heritage all the way from home! Isn’t that cool?
The tours will be guided by the most professional tour guides as well as archaeologists in town which shows that the experience will be an amazing one, indeed. For those of you who are interested, you’ll find more details as well as these guided tours on the Ministry’s website and various social media platforms.
The slogan to this newfound initiative is “Experience Egypt from Home. Stay home. Stay safe.” This is all a part of the Ministry’s genuine efforts to allow people to explore and visit the ancient Egyptian civilization all the way from home in these rough times.
Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, Egyptian’s tourism levels have decreased tremendously which is why this is a hopeful method of trying to gain back our tourists as well as locals. Believe it or not, Egypt is one of the first countries to think of such an interesting idea to start things up again.
The first tour that will be granted to you is a deep look inside the Menna Tomb in Theban Necropolis, one of Egypt’s oldest lands. This is in cooperation with the ARCE, the American Research Center in Cairo.
We hope you all find this initiative quite exciting and intriguing, don’t forget to visit the website for more information on your virtual tour! Stay safe, folks!
