Meroe Dahabiya Itinerary

5 Nights Esna to Aswan

Day 1:Monday - Esna

Esna, located some 33 miles south of Luxor, is where you will board your Dahabiya and meet the crew. Esna is best known as a thriving merchant town for the small ancient Temple of Khnum, which sits 9 meters below street level.

Your trip will begin with a brief walk to the temple and a stroll through streets filled with beautiful textiles and other exotic goods.

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Night Stay on Dahabiya Bout

Day 2:Tuesday - El Kab & Edfu

El Kab, on the East bank of the Nile, was once the capital of Upper Egypt and is still home to the temple of Nekhbet, as well as a row of fascinating decorated tombs carved into the slope of the mountains. Upon docking, you will embark on a beautiful walk through a small fishing village to visit the necropolis.

In the afternoon, the boat will arrive at Edfu, home to the Greco-Roman temple dedicated to the god Horus. This is among the best preserved of all Egyptian temples.

Horse and carriage will take you to the temple through the busy city streets.

After returning to the boat, you will set sail for a beautiful island.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Night Stay on Dahabiya Bout

Day 3:Wednesday - Sail & Swim

This is a day devoted to the river: immediately after an optional morning walk and breakfast, you will set sail. In the afternoon, you will stop at an island for a stroll or to swim in the Nile.

As dusk begins, there may be an opportunity to walk into the desert along a valley with boulders covered in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and stone-age inscriptions.

These images mark the beginning of the shortest trail through the desert to Libya (28 days in ancient times).

At night, the boat will tie up the foot of the floodlit temple of Gebel Silsileh.

Day 4:Thursday - Gebel Silsileh

The Nile, flowing between two mountain ranges, is at its narrowest. You will usually be the only visitor at this fascinating site, as large Nile cruisers are not allowed to stop here.

After visiting the small temple of Horemheb and walking through the sandstone quarries, where ancient Egyptians cut stone for many of their most famous temples, you will see a picturesque café to enjoy tea and shisha (waterpipe).

You will sail to a picturesque riverbank, stopping for lunch and swimming.

After a night on the water and beneath the stars, the morning trip will take you to the town and temple of Kom Ombo.

The temple was built during the Ptolemaic period on the site of an older temple and at one of the most beautiful locations, on a bend in the river.

The temple was dedicated to Sobek, the crocodile-headed god. After enjoying the temple, you will visit the new Crocodile Museum, which contains many mummified crocodiles, attesting to the importance the creature played in this region in ancient times.

The Meroe Dahabiya Nile Cruise exceeded all my expectations. The small group size allowed for a more personalized experience, and the crew went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The cabins were comfortable, and waking up to the Nile outside our window was a dream. The highlight, of course, was the incredible itinerary. Visiting the temples of Luxor, Kom Ombo, and Edfu was a history lover’s paradise. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate about Egypt’s past. This cruise is a must-do for anyone seeking a unique and immersive Egyptian adventure.

I recently embarked on the Meroe Dahabiya Nile Cruise as a solo traveler, and it exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I stepped on board, I was greeted with warmth and hospitality by the crew. The Dahabiya itself is a beautiful vessel, meticulously maintained, and exuding an air of elegance.

The itinerary was well-planned, and I got to see some of Egypt’s most iconic sites, from Luxor to Aswan, all while enjoying the comfort and luxury of the cruise. The cabins were cozy, and the food was simply exceptional. The chef catered to all dietary needs, and I couldn’t get enough of the delicious Egyptian dishes.

What truly made this experience memorable was the knowledgeable guide who shared insights into the rich history and culture of Egypt. I felt safe, well-cared for, and had the opportunity to make new friends with fellow travelers. If you’re a solo traveler looking for an intimate, culturally enriching Nile cruise, I highly recommend the Meroe Dahabiya
