Day 1 : Felucca Ride on The Nile in Aswan
In the morning we will pickup transfers from your hotel or Nile cruise in Aswan . Start your wonderful tour by Felucca Ride during 1 hour around Elephantine Island , it is the largest island in Aswan. Since the Old Kingdom, the island has been considered a sacred place where god Khnum, who was the potter dedicated to the fabrication of the humans and their souls, lived. The island was always being considered a strategic site for all the Pharaohs as it was controlling access to Egypt from the First Cataract. Around the island, we can find elephant-shaped granite rocks, which provided the island with its name. On many of these rocks, we can see Cartouches and inscriptions of Aswan governors, confirming the Egyptian authority over these domains. Visit the Botanical Gardens, Kitchener’s Island, the island was given to Lord Kitchener as a gratitude for his services in the Sudan Campaign (1896-1898). Kitchener transformed the small island into a paradise of exotic trees and plants, and carefully planned walkways. The Botanic Island is the second in the river, in the area of Aswan, after the Elephantine Island. It is now a public park that can be reached by motorboats. The island is a paradise of exotic trees, many from India, and plants in gardens as Hibiscus, poinciana, acacia trees , bougainvillea , lantana , flowers, shrubs and mimosa all blooming in radiant colours with view walkways. At the end of your tour you return to your hotel or cruise in Aswan . This is how our services end.
