Award-Winning Travel Company Drops Animal Rides at the Giza Pyramids

Following conversations with PETA, award-winning adventure travel company Geographic Expeditions (GeoEx) committed to leaving camel and horse rides off its itineraries at the Giza pyramids. It also took quick action to remove all images of the rides from its marketing materials. GeoEx joins a growing list of companies that don’t want to be associated with the cruelty of hitting animals in the face and forcing them to haul or carry visitors in the blistering sun without access to food, water, or shade. Everyone can help end these abusive rides by never paying for them—and by writing to Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities to ask it to use only non-animal transportation at the site.
