You won't be disappointed with this excursion. Dive in to the lifestyle of the Nubians, with sand floors, and crocodiles in their house. I recommend this visit, even if it's just to relax and enjoy a tea.

Nice village with several activities: felucca riding, camel riding, walking all around the village to see the Nubian houses and families, shopping for Nubian products, drawing henna by the hands of female Nubian artists.

I didn't imagine how can I enjoy this place when they told me about it. Wonderful beach on the river Nile, riding camels, drinking tea and having dinner in an oriental place with very delicious food in great quantities and home made quality. I don't...More
