El Kab, on the East bank of the Nile about 80 miles south of Luxor, is home to the temple of Nekhbet, as well as a gorgeous necropolis carved into the wall of the mountains beyond the temple. Upon docking, you will embark on a beautiful walk through a small fishermen village, across the railroad tracks to visit the necropolis. After the tour, you will return to the boat for lunch, across the Nile from a gorgeous house built by an English architect Somers Clark in the XIXth Century. In the afternoon, the boat will arrive at Edfu, home to the very famous temple dedicated to the God Horus. This temple is among the best preserved in all of Egypt. Horse and carriage will take you to and from the temple through the busy city streets. After returning to the boat, you will set sail for the banks of an island to spend the night and take walks under banana trees.

Day 6 - Desert walk

After breakfast, you will begin sailing for the day. In the afternoon, you will stop at an island to take a swim in the Nile. As dusk begins, you will walk through desert and mountains, tracing the beginnings of the trail that marks the shortest distance through the desert to Libya (28 days in ancient times). The valley lined with boulders covered in hieroglyphs and stone-age inscriptions. At night, the boat arrives at the foot of floodlit temple of Djebel Silsileh.

Day 7 - Silsilah Mountain

Here, the Nile, flowing between two mountains ranges, is at its narrowest. You will be the only ones on the site, as the large Nile cruisers can only pass in the distance. After visiting the temple of Horemheb, you will visit a picturesque café to enjoy tea and hooka. After the rest, you will continue on to a picturesque pasture where you will stop for lunch and swimming.

Day 8 - Kom Ombo

After a night on the water under the stars, the morning trip will take you to the town and temple of Kom Ombo. The temple was originally built by Tuthmosis III in honor of Sobek, the crocodile-headed god in the 2nd century BC. Alongside the temple stands a room with mummified crocodiles, attesting to the importance the animal played in this region of Egypt. After the temple visit, the boat will sail toa beautiful beach where you can once again swim. Finally, you will dock just past the Aswan Bridge where you will rest under the stars. [ Please note that this final docking is not as picturesque as our previous stops, due to the fact that the Nile Authorities have restricted dahabiehs from docking anywhere else]
