Seven cruise ships transport tourists to visit the famous temples at Abu Simbel travelling down the middle of the lake only visiting the Nubian monuments on the shore line. Our small boat cruise offers a more rewarding experience.

Cruise ships are too cumbersome to manoeuvre in shallower water where all the action is. Our smaller House Boats are perfect for getting a close-up experience into the Sahara deserts grandeur, its prolific bird life, wild animals and to meet the desert nomads who inhabit the shoreline.

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

 

Explore a desert lake in your own House Boat or Safari Boat escorted by an experienced guide then, to relax and have your meals, join in the social atmosphere of a well-appointed Mother Ship. In many ways it is like visiting a game park in Africa.

Our concept of having an independent Mother Ship taking care of catering and recreation is unique on Lake Nasser. 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. Our small boat cruise is perfect for getting these close-up experiences.
