A tour by motor boat and on foot of 3 hours:
- First we sail through the islands to see our birds, plants, rocks, rapids, sand dunes and the old city of Elephantine (from the boat).
- Then we walk through the Nubian villages on Elephantine Island to see: the house, the old Mosque, the school, the farm land with its birds and visit the charming museum “Animalia” where a welcome drink (mint tea or karkadea) is served.
The tours are conducted by professional Nubian guides Mohamed Sobhi (recommended by the Lonely Planet guidebook) or by his daughter Fatma.
Prices vary according to the number of individuals. Tips are welcomed if you are satisfied with the tour.
