Cruising Upper Egypt

From:£7,990

Summary

Beyond the High Dam; from Lake Nassar to Luxor

Embark on a fascinating journey through Upper Egypt and the land of Nubia, from Lake Nasser to Luxor, once ancient city of Thebes. Sailing across the serene waters of Egypt’s vast reservoir gives a very different perspective to our cruise further along the Nile. The West Bank’s shallow shore line attracts wild birds and their predators, and the East Bank is rugged and mountainous with an ‘other worldly’ desert landscape. The sites beyond the High Dam include the breath-taking, cliff face temple complex at Abu Simbel and the unfrequented sites of Amada and Wadi El Sebouath. We continue after the High Dam from Aswan along the felucca dotted river, through desert villages and dotted with feluccas to Luxor with its wealth of fabulous ancient sites.

Cabins are allocated as 'run of house' between the Middle and Upper Deck.

An Upper Deck Cabin can be guaranteed at a supplement, subject to availability, please call to request.

Please note that the itinerary can be subject to change before the cruise departs or during the cruise depending on adjusted sailing times and/or any port restrictions.
