Tour itinerary:

Nile Holiday representative will be glad to pick up you from your hotel in Aswan to take a ride on a felucca, (a typical Egyptian sailboat), around an hour (weather permitting), then, land to Lord Kitchener Botanical Garden (Aswan Botanical Island) The island was given to Lord Kitchener as a thank-you for his services in the Sudan Campaign (1896-1898). Kitchener's Island lies in the middle of the Nile at Aswan and is home to over thirty varieties of palm and tropical plants from around the world. The effect is lush and exotic and attracts colorful birds, water fowl, and egrets.

Proceed with a motor boat, Viewing the Mausoleum of Aga Khan. then, sailing through the Nile cataracts. The cataracts of the Nile are shallow stretches between Aswan city and the old Aswan dam, where the water's surface is broken by numerous small boulders and stones lying on the river bed, as well as many small rocky islets. In some places, these stretches are punctuated by whitewater and are perhaps well characterized as rapids, while in others the water flow is smoother. The cataracts of the Nile were the main obstacles for boats sailing on the Nile.

Followed by a visit to the Nubian village. If you are on a trip to this Nubian village you can see the local handicraft that the Nubians make. The bright colors houses are more African in their style rather than being Egyptian. See the baby crocodiles that the Nubians let free in Lake Nasser when they grow. The Nubians are hospitable and modest. You’ll really feel home in this relaxed African atmosphere. The houses are clean and completely furnished, with bathroom, toilet, kitchen, warm and cold running water etc. Nearby you’ll enjoy the beautiful nature of the desert, the Nile River etc.
