4 hours
French, Spanish, English

If you are searching for regional plants, bird watching, and meeting the local people, this tour is for you! Aswan is a beautiful, scenic city in Southern Egypt and is a protected natural area. Our tour guide will meet you at your hotel and take you on a private motorboat to the starting point of your journey. Your tour will begin by crossing the island of Elephantine to get to the Botanical Gardens, located on the island. On each plant, there is a panel that explains the name and the place where it comes from. Then, you will continue to the Nubian Village, situated 6 km to the south of the Botanical Garden, by crossing the 1st Cataract area, which is really rich in different kinds of migratory birds. You may have a stop on your way to enjoy the clear water of the Nile near a beautiful sandy beach, but if you would like to have it — don't forget to take your swimming clothes with you! Finally, you will visit one of the culturally richest Nubian villages, with its lovely decorated houses painted mainly in white and blue. Your guide will explain more to you about the local culture, history, and traditions while you will be enjoying traditional mint tea in one of those houses.
