Pelicans on Lake Nasser

Desert Bedouin co-existing with nature… timeless as the desert itself


A private charter offers a degree of independence which many of our guests prefer. Perfect for a family or group of friends who would like to set out and explore this unique desert lake, at their own pace, on an adventure which has few comparisons. Start on any day of the year and come for as long as required.

You will have the exclusive use of the small boat safari unit and can focus on what you are most interested in, ecology, history or just soak up the experience of this spectacular desert lake.


’Our objective is to offer affordable first class holidays personalized to small groups of individuals and families who would like a break from crowded tourist sites and experience Egypt from a unique perspective”



How a private charter works

The focal point is your mother ship with an experienced Nubian safari crew to look after you. Just tell your guide what you want, they are there to help you have a relaxed and memorable small boat safari. Explore the lake in your own live aboard boat then for your meals and overnight link up with a well-appointed mother ship. After sundowner drinks experience a night sky full of brilliantly bright stars; there is no light pollution from cities, a natural phenomenon few people have experienced.

Mother Ships. Our concept of having an independent unit taking care of catering and recreation is unique on Lake Nasser. With cruise ships everything is cramped together in one unit with little privacy. Cruise ships, big or small, are too cumbersome to get close to wild life and manoeuvre in shallower water where all the action is. Our live aboard boats are perfect for getting a close-up experience of this magnificent desert lake.

At night, when the lights have been turned off the area comes alive; Gerbils scouting around for leftovers; desert foxes or golden jackals are also likely to be searching for titbits we sometimes leave out for them.

During the day explore the lake’s shore line with its captivating environment and prolific bird life. Water has washed away the top soil to reveal fossils of bygone eras. Also, Stone Age drawings and hieroglyphics, carved by ancient Egyptians on their trading expeditions can be found.

The weather is always sunny; most areas have not seen any rain for many, many years.
