If you feel like visiting Upper Egypt, we invite you to the Nile Cruise. An old Egyptian proverb says “Egypt as a gift of the Nile”. The Egyptians have for centuries owed their existence to the Nile River. The area around the Nile accumulates many monuments. A Nile cruise is a great way to learn about the history of Egypt. Cruise ships stop in the most interesting areas from Luxor to Aswan. The duration of the trip is 5 days and 4 nights or 7 days and 6 nights. For groups of about 6 people, we organize cruises on the Nile with a 5 * luxury ship.

Day 5: Gebel el Silsila - Kom Ombo - Maniha

We sail to Gebel el Silsila. Here, the Nile narrows and the high sandstone rocks go up to the shore creating a beautiful gorge. In ancient times this place was known as Khennui or “paddling place”. Gebel el-Silsila became an important worship center and each year at the time of the flooding of the Nile, sacrifices were made to the gods of the Nile asking them for prosperity for the coming year.
It is also the largest quarry where sandstone was mined for the construction of temples, e.g. in Karnak or Ramesseum and Medinet Habu. Today it is an archaeological site.
It is here that you can see the ruins of temples dedicated to Pharaohs: Horemheb, Seti I, Ramses II and Merenptah. Then we head up the Nile towards the double temple of Haroeris and Sobek in Kom Ombo. We will spend the night mooring at Maniha Island.

Some animals came to Daraw all the way from Sudan. Camels, sellers, buyers – it is not known who will shout louder. People dressed in traditional clothes willingly take pictures and look at the pictures on the camera preview. Children running around, laughter, movement.
