WELCOME TO LAKE NASSER ADVENTURE – ACTIVE & ECOTOURISM

 

 

We thank you for your interest in our company and our very special destination. We invite you to cruise with us through the desert by boat, a unique experience in the world’s largest desert, only few hours away from Europe.

 

In the year 2002 we decided to develop, besides our strong experience in game fishing, a new travel concept on Lake Nasser and invented boat-trekking. A boat trip of several nights is also called “safari“ in Egypt. A creative way to discover the Nubian desert and a few beautiful temples between Aswan and Abu Simbel. It is a very comfortable way of travelling into remote parts of the desert, because we take the water way. Since 2007 we offer also a luxury version of our adventure trips with a small cruise boat with cabins and extra comfort. It is our latest development.

 

In the 1960's, President Nasser ordered to build a second dam on the Nile near Aswan, resulting in flooding over 6,200km2 of the Nile Valley to the south, creating one of the largest man-made lakes in Africa. The lake is 550km long and its shores reach an incredible 7,844km.

With no doubt it is one of the most impressive regions of Upper Egypt. Far away from civilisation and a few cruise ships on the lake, you will have the privilege of discovering, between Aswan and Abu Simbel, some very interesting ancient Egyptian temples like Wadi es Seboua, Dakka and Amada, saved from the rising waters. You will have the occasion to observe a very rich fauna, sheltering the last colonies of Nile crocodiles, a huge variety of birds (Ibis, Nubian geese, storks, pelicans, flamingos, herons, egrets and other birds), monitor lizards, gazelles, jackals, fennecs and the famous Nile Perch. Swimming in fresh lake water, fishing and beautiful desert walks are important activities of our 5 or 6-day safari programme on the lake.

 

Our small groups will enjoy the hospitality of our Nubian-Egyptian boat staff and be guided by an English speaking guide. On board our boats, especially conceived for this kind of travelling and lake conditions, you will explore this real inner ocean of fresh water and untouched nature. Sometimes we might meet a Besharia Bedouin or a local fisherman on our way.

 

One of the highlights is visiting the temples of Abu Simbel which are among the most magnificent ancient monuments in the world. It will leave you with an unforgettable holiday experience.
