Nile Cruise on a Dahabiya (sailing boat)

By / 1st April, 2016 / Nile Cruise / Off

This the cruise our guests recently went on. We started at Esna and cruised up the Nile stopping at Edfu, Gebel Silsila, the Camel Market at Darwa,  Philae and Aswan. It was a wonderful trip for them and the crew made sure they enjoyed themselves. Even down to making a birthday cake!

Taking this photo of the development I was struck by how lush and green it is around the village. You can see the new rooms being built next to the existing villas.

Spiritual and Health Benefits of Egypt’s Deserts

Renew your energy, restore your well being and invigorate your body with a trip in Egypt’s  deserts. A trip in the desert is a great opportunity to reconnect with your inner self and get back to nature. The Bedouin way of life has so much to teach us, to bring us in tune again with our inner self. Meditate as the sun rises and the birds catch the morning thermals. As they soar in the sky, your mind will soar in spiritual renewal. Here, where there is evidence of the earliest man with primitive petroglyphs, get back to your essential core. Rest your body with sleep under timeless stars and deep dark nights. I have taken people to the western desert and to the Sinai and they come back changed, let me change you.

So if you are looking for a fun, knowledgeable and exciting holiday this autumn, come to the Nubian Village Hotel Luxor. The summer heat has finished by the end of August and the kids have gone back to school.
