Re-capture the by-gone era of the Nile.
Royalty, British Aristocrats and Celebrities alike, cruised the Nile by Dahabiya during the British Colonisation of Egypt, which lasted from 1882 until 1952. These beautifully crafted, sailing boats represented the ultimate in luxury.
Recently Dahabiya’s have seen a revival for discerning travellers looking to explore the mystery of the Nile and recapture the bygone era of romance, elegance and intimate service.
There are several different styles of Dahabiya, offering a complete contrast to the larger cruise ships – the Dahabiya’s of today are still as beautifully crafted and now offer the modern day comforts of fully air-conditioned, en-suite cabins and some truly, gastronomic experiences. As a typical Dahabiya has between only 8 and 12 cabins (many also offer suites) you are guaranteed a more personal experience with your Egyptologist guide, your fellow passengers and your crew.
These sailing boats are popular amongst discerning travellers who would like to experience Egypt at a more leisurely pace – those who wish to drink in the landscapes and explore the monuments and villages on the riverbanks.
3, 4 and 7 night durations are available with classic itineraries, between Luxor and Aswan. We also specialise in private charters offering tailor-made itineraries.
In short, you will have an inspirational journey on a sailboat fit for a king!
