Nile Cruises
As one of the greatest rivers in the world, the Nile should be one of the ultimate incentives to visit northeastern Africa. Its waters connect eleven African countries. The Nile's life-supporting powers directly led to the growth and prosperity of ancient Egypt. A cruise to modern-day Egypt will offer you endless opportunities and unforgettable sights, such as sensational sunrises and vast desert landscapes. The Nile plays a vital role in sustaining the livelihoods of cities, towns, and villages that touch its shores, and this power should be celebrated. What better way to do so than to cruise on the Nile and experience Egypt from a refreshing perspective? The Nile is the key to some of the best sights Africa has to offer. Cruising up the Nile will take you to Egypt, awarding you spectacular views of the pyramids and temples towering above, a trip to the Valley of the Kings, where the tomb of Tutankhamun was unearthed, and a visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. You could also take a break along the way to explore Dendara, Edfu, or one of the many waterside temples. Choose a Nile River cruise that will lead you to the holy Mount Sinai, the ancient Ruins of Abu, the brilliant White Desert National Park, the Monastery of Saint Paul the Anchorite and so much more!

Travel Tips for Nile Cruises

Egypt and the Nile

Egypt is a land of ancient splendour enriched by centuries of culture. Along the narrow ribbon of the 1,545-kilometre River Nile, dynasties of Kings and Queens created monumental legacies that will fascinate you.

Nile cruises visit a wider variety of antiquities along the banks of the river. But equally important, they also allow the tourist to gain a prospective of the rural Egypt, where people live much the same way they did even thousands of years ago, in mud-brick homes, tending their fields with wooden ploughs and moving produce via donkey. It is a wonderful experience to sit on a shaded deck of a floating hotel, sipping an iced beverage while watching 5,000 years of culture slowly drift by.
