Cruise ships transport tourists to and from the world famous temples at Abu Simbel travelling down the middle of Lake Nasser only visiting monuments on the shore line because they are too big to reach shallow water where all the action is.

Small boat cruises are perfect for getting a close-up experience of this unique desert lake. Its spectacular shore line, rich biodiversity,  nomadic people as well as visiting the lakes temples.

A small boat cruise is the same as visiting a game park in Africa where  vehicles are used for game viewing and then for meals and overnight you stay in a lodge. Our small boat cruise is the same except we use live aboard House Boats or Safari Boats for exploring the lake supported by well-appointed Mother Ships which provide our guests with their meals and recreation.

‘’Our holidays are for the individual, not mass tourism, we will show you a more intimate and traditional side of Egypt.’’



Our concept of having an independent Mother Ship taking care of catering and recreation is unique on Lake Nasser. Explore the lake from your live aboard House Boat or Safari Boat escorted by an experienced English speaking Nubian guide to visit the places which are of the most interest to you.

You will be looked after by a professional team of Nubians whose homeland Lake Nasser once was. Most of our cruise staff and guides have been with us for 17 years or longer. See tab in left panel Boats & Crew.

Overnight stops are on sandy fresh water beaches. In the evenings sip sundowners as you watch spectacular desert sunsets followed by a night sky full of brilliantly bright stars; there is no light pollution from cities, a phenomenon few people have experienced.

There are opportunities to walk along the Lake’s shore line exploring its captivating environment. In some places, water has washed away the top soil, cleaning the sandstone to reveal plant and animal fossils of bygone eras. Also, Stone Age drawings and more ‘’modern’’ hieroglyphics, carved by ancient Egyptians during their trading expeditions can be found.

‘’The kind of hospitality shown by Tim and his guides is seldom seen these days and the atmosphere was incredibly friendly"   Steve Pitts

The Family Experience: Children have a fertile imagination with a mind like a sponge when it comes to taking in new and exciting experiences. A small boat cruise has many more worthwhile adventures than a sun, sea & sand holiday staying in a plush hotel with the kids holding on tight to their smart phones. See left panel Family Experience.
