Every day hundreds of visitors cruise down the middle of Lake Nasser to visit the world famous temples of Ramses at Abu Simbel, they travel in seven comfortable cruise ships only visiting the temple sites on the shoreline of the lake.

Our small boat cruise to Abu Simbel offers a unique alternative to the stereotype cruise ships.

In addition to the temple sites and Abu Simbel, you will also get a close up experience of the Sahara deserts vast panorama, its nomads, birds and wildlife living on the shoreline of the lake.

Explore the desert lake in your House Boat escorted by an experienced guide then, to relax and have your meals, join in the social atmosphere of a well-appointed Mother Ship.

Cruise ships, both big and small, are too cumbersome to get into the shallow water where all the action is, viewing birds and wild life, meeting the nomads or going for walks.

House boats are perfect for getting these close-up experiences.

For more detail refer to tab Boats & Crew in left panel.  

‘’Our style of holiday is for the individual, not mass tourism, we show you the traditional side of Egypt.’’



The cruise starts or ends at either Aswan or Abu Simbel depending on the date you book a cruise. Each day you will travel for 5 or 6 hours close to the lakes shore line taking in the incredible scenery.

There are two itinerary options: -

3 nights & 4 days starting weekly on Monday or Thursday

4 nights & 5 days starting weekly on Sunday or Thursday

We suggest you come on the five day cruise which will give you more leisure time to explore the lake. On a 4 day cruise the travelling time each day is longer due to the distance which must be covered.

’'Pictures speak a thousand words’’ peruse our Slide Show for an insight into this unique desert Lake.

"To sit back under a big, full sky full of stars, eating, drinking and yarning, listening to the desert sounds.... are a super experience, both exciting and relaxing simultaneously " Barrie Rickards: Professor of Palaeontology and Biostratigraphy Cambridge University.
