Full description
Your River Nile adventure begins with pickup from your Aswan hotel in the late afternoon. Head down towards the river then hop on board your private boat for the evening and set sail along the infamous waters of the Nile. Arrive at the first stop of the tour, the Botanical Gardens on Lord Kitchener Island, home to an array of plants that were imported from all over the wold in the 1800s. Enjoy some free time to stroll around the gardens, admiring the majestic palm trees that line the walkways including the Sabal Palm and Phonic Palm as well as Ficus trees and other beautiful bougainvillea trees. Head back to the boat and continue along the Nile, watching the sunset and the sky change color. Sail around Elephantine Island, a tiny island home to ancient ruins and temples, then glide past the Mausoleum of Aga Khan built in the style of the Fatimid tombs in Cairo.
