Aswan

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT ASWAN

  • Visit the Nubian Museum with its fascinating collections
  • Fly south to the imposing temples of Abu Simbel
  • Visit one of the colourful Nubian villages
  • Travel to the desert dunes on the eastern shores to explore the Tombs of the Nobles

OUR SPECIALISTS ‘MUST DO’

A lovely way to spend an afternoon here is aboard a traditional Felucca. Sail to the Botanical Island or Kitchener’s Island or alternatively just ask your skipper to cruise the Nile and you can sit back, soak up the sun while spotting osprey and kingfisher.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ASWAN

Aswan is as far south as you can go before entering the desert, Nubia and Sudan. It is, effectively, where Egypt ends and offers visitors many different activities and sights.

The pace is a little slower, it is a little warmer, and you will notice the Nubians, who have darker skin and are often taller in height.

Aswan is also the launch pad for excursions across Lake Nasser and the desert to Abu Simbel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This can be done by air or for those wanting a more leisurely pace it is also possible to cruise Lake Nasser and visit the monuments relocated on its shores.

WHEN TO GO

The best time to visit Aswan is in the winter month between November and March when the days are warm and dry. In the summer months the temperatures can reach staggering heights and in some cases can reach the high 40’s.
