Nubian adventures and a felucca cruise

Duration: 3 days / 2 nights
Fitness Level: Moderate

The tour starts with a visit to the Nubian Museum. Due to the importance of the material that was rescued from tombs, temples and settlements in Lake Nasser before the construction of the High Dam, UNESCO planned a museum in Aswan to exhibit the unique Nubian heritage.

Then you will sail in the archipelago on board your private felucca around tropical-like islands, and visit a Nubian village in Gharb Aswan on camels. A light picnic lunch and an afternoon tea will be served on board. You will end the day with a Nubian dinner full of exotic taste. The dinner will be followed by a drum show performed by the locals around a campfire on the Glory of Nubia private island. Feel free to join the dance!

You will spend the first night in a private tent on the island. Alternatively, you can choose to sleep on your private felucca.

The second day starts at dawn with camel trekking on the hilltops of Aswan to watch the spectacular sunrise over the Nile River (optional tour). Then you will join the felucca to continue sailing downstream towards Daraw.

A journey in a felucca is full of adventures. You will have the possibility to visit historic sites on the Nile banks, meet peasants, enjoy Nubian meals prepared in front of you by the crew, or sing and dance around campfires. For those seeking relaxation, you will have enough time to lie back on your mattress, watch life on the Nile banks pass you by, read a book or just listen to the sound of the birds and wind. You will have the entire felucca at your private disposal. You will sleep on board the felucca.

On the third day you will disembark after breakfast and be transferred to Luxor in a private minivan. You can visit Kom Ombo and Edfu temples on your own (entrance fees not included). Alternatively, you can choose to return back to Aswan after disembarkation.
