  • Sail down the ancient River Nile in a felucca captained by a Nubian sailor

What to expect

Your felucca captain will meet you in the morning and after a short walk, you’ll arrive at the docks where you will board the felucca boat. These boats are traditionally made of wood and have tall, white sails.
Watch seagulls fly above you and families farming their land using time-honored techniques, see donkeys wandering around the barren landscape and palm trees gently swaying in the breeze. You’ll stop for a traditional lunch on board the boat and have time to chat to the Nubian captain in order to gain a better understanding of his culture and language. You’ll head back to the docks at Aswan around mid-afternoon.
