SEKEM TOURS & VACATIONS
The SEKEM project first started in 1977 & has since become a role model for sustainable development in Egypt, the Middle East & North Africa region, as well as worldwide.
Luxor leaves visitors in awe; the splendour of well-preserved & powerful ancient monuments, hospitable people & atmosphere of this magical wonder of Egypt & the world.
Built to carry celebrities & royal families, the Dahabeya is a luxury pleasure houseboat for the Nile river. Combine this vacation with a visit to the SEKEM project.
Combined with the desert’s absolute calm & isolation under the cosmos, you’ll have all the time in the world to sit & ponder; to consider life & think about its meaning.
TRAVELLING TO SEKEM & EGYPT
Sustainability - Development of the individual, society and environment through a holistic concept, integrating economics, societal and cultural life, as well as ecology.
Humanity - The place of the individual in society shapes our social relationships, while the laws of a society determine individual opportunities. In a fair and just society, the individual human being is recognised to have innate rights, is equal to all others in front of the law, and is granted equal opportunities for participation.
Environmentalism - As people, we are appointed as stewards on earth to sustain and develop it. Based on the Biodynamic approach of cultivation, SEKEM constantly monitors its impact on soils, plants, animals, energy, air and water.
Education - Humanity creates the world from ideas. All learning, researching, inventing, and artistic activities are ideally free and not influenced by material benefits. Holistic thinking and acting transforms a materialistic society into a cultural society with meaningful values.
Responsible Vacations - Experience, support and participate in the SEKEM sustainable community; plus option to combine your travels with the splendour and magic of other parts of Destination Egypt.
