Felucca sailing on the Nile

Felucca sailing on the Nile

In the morning after breakfast we visit the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. The pyramids belong to the 4th Dynasty pharaohs of Cheops, Chephren, Mykerinos. We stop at the Papyrus Institute before we drive into downtown. The Egyptian Museum is home to the countless artifacts of Egypt’s historical past from pre-historic times to the Pharaohs until the Greco-Roman era, with the superb treasures of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen, who died so young, as one of the highlights. So many impressions must be absorbed and digested.

The perfect place to reflect on this journey into the past is on a felucca sailing the Nile while enjoying your lunch break. The felucca, the traditional Egyptian sailing boat) takes us straight to the dock at the Royal Club Mohamed Ali.

The Nile River is the longest river in the world, stretching for 4,187 miles. The Nile flows from south to north and is formed by three major tributaries: the White Nile, the Blue Nile and the Atbara. The Nile then plunges into a canyon.
Before the construction of the Aswan High Dam; the Nile rolled through a series of six rapids, called cataracts, between northern Sudan and southern Egypt. Since construction of the dam, the river has gradually changed its course.In one generation, thousands of years of life along the Nile River have been permanently altered.
