Tourism Ministry takes Levison Wood’s trip video from Al-Masry Al-Youm to promote tourism

The Tourism Ministry took from Al-Masry Al-Youm the video of the British explorer Levison Wood to send to various media and promote tourism.

Wood took the longest walk on the banks of the Nile from its upstream to its downstream in Egypt. He began his journey from Rwanda in central Africa step by step for eight months through Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan and Sudan, facing lions, tigers, hippos, crocodiles and scorpions. 
He said the main objective of the trip was to get to know the people who inhabit the banks of the Nile and learn about their cultures and traditions and their common and unique characteristics.
“Egypt is the undisputed cradle of civilization,” he said, pointing out that he was delighted by the generosity of the Egyptian people. “They invited me to rest and offered me tea and lunch, something I didn’t find in my country.”
Egypt is struggling to revitalize tourism, which was affected by the security situation and the instability since the ouster of president Mohamed Morsy, and by frequent reports of sexual harassment of tourists.
