A little more about The Nile
The Nile enabled one of the greatest civilizations to grow and flourish. The Pharaohs’ spectacular architectural legacy has captured the imagination of travellers for generations and there remains no better introduction than a river journey on The Nile.
Cruises between Luxor and Aswan can take between 3 and 7 nights and you can chose between a boat offering the ultimate in comfort and luxury onboard The Oberoi Zahra through to a more traditional Nile experience, onboard a dahabiya which relies on the river’s currents and the gentle breeze.
When to go on a Nile Cruise
With most destinations in Egypt, the weather really does determine the best time of year to visit because the summer gets very, very hot. Therefore, we would advise taking a Nile Cruise during the cooler months between September and March.
