Meet a special part of Egypt: Nubia. Here live the Nubians, an African people with their own language and culture.
But Nubia is larger: the area extends from southern Egypt (the area around Aswan) to northern Sudan. In Sudan the Nubians are one of the largest population groups, in Egypt an ethnic minority.
Egyptian and Nubian history have always been closely intertwined. In the 25th Pharaoh dynasty the Nubians were the rulers (the period of the"black pharaohs"), in other periods they were suppressed by the Egyptians.
In addition, and that is much less known, the Nubians have also known their own African kingdoms, apart from those of the Pharaohs. In North Sudan in particular, there are remains of it.
As a Nubia specialist, our journeys are concentrated in South Egypt and Sudans further south along the Nile.
In addition, we also organize trips in other parts of Egypt. The entire country has so much history, culture and natural beauty to offer.
We are able to arrange your tours in:
Cairo and the surrounding area,
the desert areas,
the Nile Valley, Luxor and surroundings,
of course Aswan
and all the way to the south in Abu Simbel.
All can be combined with beach holidays at the Red Sea.
In all these places we work with reliable, usually Nubian partners. And also with some Dutch people who live in Egypt and offer accommodation, transport and / or excursions.
In addition to the itineraries that you will find on our website, we organize tailor-made trips for our international clientele.
We are affiliated with the Dutch Association of Small-Scale Travel Organizations (VvKR). The VvKR defends the interests of small, often specialist, travel organizations. Via the VvKR we combine our strengths and share our expertise to achieve the greatest possible certainty and satisfaction for both the travel organization and the consumer. More information:
A guarantee in place: STO Garant
In order to meet its statutory obligation to provide a guarantee, Experience Nubia uses STO Garant, a guarantee scheme recognised by the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM). You can check that this is the case by visiting STO Garant’s website and verifying that the organisation is listed as a participant (www.sto-garant.nl/en/members). You can find all information relating to STO Garant at Whether STO Garant's guarantee applies to a particular (travel) offer made by Experience Nubia is specified for that offer. The Guarantee Scheme specifies what the guarantee covers and which conditions apply. You can find the Guarantee Scheme on STO Garant's website (www.stogarant.nl/en/downloads).
How it works
If STO Garant's guarantee applies to your booking, you do not pay the booking amount to Experience Nubia but instead into the escrow account belonging to Stichting Derdengelden Certo Escrow, a payment services provider registered with De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) and the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM). This trust account holds your payment in reserve until the trip booked has come to an end. The booking amount is then released to Experience Nubia on the day after your trip ends. If Experience Nubia should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases.
