National Geographic's Egypt Adventure Map is designed to meet the unique needs of adventure travelers with its detail, durability, and accuracy. The map includes the locations of thousands of cities and towns with an index for easily locating them, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for expressways, major roadways, and more. Transportation within and beyond the country is made easier with the locations of airports, airfields, railroads, ferry routes, lighthouses, harbors, border crossings, and police control points.
What sets National Geographic Adventure Maps apart from traditional road maps are the hundreds of points of interest that highlight the diverse, unique, and exotic destinations within Egypt. In addition to typical sites of interest such as UNESCO sites, national parks, mosques, churches, and monuments, this map includes Egypt’s many archeological sites, pyramids, oases, caves, and hot springs. Travelers wishing to visit the Mediterranean or Red Sea Riviera will find dozens of beaches, coral reefs, scenic viewpoints, and shipwrecks to explore.

The reverse side of the map covers the southern portion of the country, and shows the cities of Nag Hammadi, Luxor, Aswan, and Qena, and the oases of Kharga and Dakhla.
