DAY TO DAY PROGRAM
Arrival in Aswan. Transfer to guesthouse Bet el Kerem in the Nubian village Nagh el Kuba, where you will stay the night during this week.
Before we leave for the desert, we do some cultural sightseeing: In the morning we visit the Isis temple on Philae Island and the Kalabsha temple near Lake Nasser with a professional guide (egyptologist). On the way back we visit the High Dam of Lake Nasser and the Unfinished Obelisk. Late afternoon we go on board a felucca for a sailing trip by sunset (famous in Aswan!). We finish the day with a welcome dinner in the restaurant of guesthouse Bet el Kerem.
After enjoying breakfast on the roof terrace, we leave for the desert on a camel; the beginning of the safari. We travel southwards. The next days you will discover the surprising varied desert landscape from south (the Aswan Dam) to north (the Kubaniya district).
We exchange the desert for the water and the camel for a boat: a relaxed day sailing, picknick and swimming in the Nile if you like. In the Nubian village Nagh el Kuba dinner is ready.
In the morning possibility to do some shopping in the market of Aswan on the East bank. In the afternoon we visit the Nubian museum. The tour ends with a dinner in Nubian house; a perfect location with marvellous view over the Nile valley and the first cataract.
