The weather is anything but calm, yet staying home with the kids can be challenging. So, if you’re looking for a fun and educational alternative, it’s time to consider one of these options and start having fun in Cairo with your kids:
Visit the Child museum
Travel through time starting from the Ancient Egyptian civilization to modern times at the Child Museum. The child will start the tour by receiving a passport and will travel through different times and civilizations of Egyptian history.
Go on a safari
Take a bike or walking tour at Africa Safari Park and spend the day getting up close and personal with animals. Located on the Sahrawy Desert Road, you can spend the day there and get to see wild animals as well as enjoy the greenery.
Watch a performance at Sitara Theatre
Expose your children to a creative and interactive theatrical show at Sitara Theatre and help them fall in love with self-expression, art, and theatre in the process.
Experience the Egyptian museum in a different way
You’d be surprised to know that the Egyptian museum has an entire section of Pharaohs and the Sphinx made out of LEGO pieces! Your kids will enjoy seeing the historic artifacts a whole lot more when they’re made out of something they enjoy: LEGO.
Experience the artistic heritage of Egyptian dancers twirling around by watching a tanoura show near Khan El Khalili. Filled with music, dance, and a whole lot of color, your kids will definitely be psyched.
Have a picnic
With large areas of greenery at Al-Azhar Park in Salah Salem or Family Park in Rehab, you can have a picnic and enjoy a day outdoors.
Go on a cultural tour and get familiar with Egypt’s iconic history
Visit the iconic Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx and get a glimpse of ancient Egyptian history.
Get familiar with Egypt’s air force history
Egypt’s Airforce Museum is not only a great experience because of the many different military aircrafts available, but also because the tour guides enable children to get a better understanding of Egypt’s military background by seeing their aircrafts first-hand.
View Cairo from new heights at Cairo Tower
Climb up to the roof of the tower and get a birds-eye view of Cairo. With the River Nile and the lights of the city illuminating at night, it’s an incredible experience.
Visit the Railway Museum
If your kids enjoyed The Air Force Museum, your next stop should definitely be The Railway Museum as your kids will get to see the old Egyptian train models and even operate a locomotive one.
Sail on a felucca
Hop on a Felucca and enjoy Zamalek from a completely different perspective. There’s something about being on the Nile that offers a serene experience, but don’t forget your music to give your kids something to dance to.
Get to see real fossils at The Zoological Museum at the Giza Zoo
For those kids who are obsessed with dinosaurs or fossils, this place will be a real treat. At The Zoological Museum, they’ll be able to see real dinosaur fossils as well as skeletons of animals making it quite the experience.
