The Great Pyramid of Giza by private jet is the first in our series on the Wonders of the World by Private Jet and the first in the category on the seven ancient wonders of the world.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest pyramid of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex; it is also the largest. These pyramids border present-day Giza which is located in Cairo, Egypt. The Great Pyramid of Giza is also referred to as the Pyramid of Khufu, as it is the final resting place of the pharaoh Khufu. It is estimated that the Great Pyramid is constructed of approximately 2.3 million blocks of limestone.
Where to Stay
The Marriot Mena House, Cairo is approximately 0.4 miles from the Great Pyramid of Giza and a very convenient hotel option when visiting the Pyramid of Giza by private jet.
If you prefer to stay in the larger, more populous, areas then we recommend either the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo or the Nile Ritz-Carlton. Both are gorgeous hotels with impeccable amenities and near all the fun and excitement of Cairo.
Absolutely must golf?
