Far from the bustling streets of Cairo and the packed temples of the Nile Valley, lies one of Egypt’s best-kept secrets. Beyond the great cataracts of Upper Egypt, amongst the deserts landscapes of ancient Nubia, we find one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking settings in Africa. Lake Nasser is one of the world’s most expansive stretches of water, with a coastline covering more than 7,800 kilometres.
Refreshingly devoid of tourists, its deserts and shoreline are home to Nile crocodiles, ancient temples and over 100 species of birds and this fascinating adventure takes us deep into its captivating heart. Travelling aboard a small private safari boat and with the option to sleep out under the stars, we will discover ancient Pharaonic temples and prehistoric graffiti, trek€ross golden dunes and swim in clear waters that are filled with Nile perch and tiger fish.
