The only reason to take this cruise is the visit to Abu Simbel and the Ramses temple. Having said that, it is too bed that our particular trip on the Movenpick Prince Abbas only allowed for two hours at the site. Our cruise was a return trip from Aswan. Because of lack of tourists, there was. I return flight from... More

Forget your cares,your contacts and your computer. If you love tranquillity, Big starry skies, Desert landscapes and relaxing on a comfortable small boat The African Angler Safari could be for you. We particularly enjoyed the tasty meals served on deck of the mother boat and wonderful long walks exploring the desert islands with or without our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide... More

Just the idea of an African Safari sounds fantastic. Toss into it breathtaking desert scenes, exquisite sunsets, house boats and exotic species of sport fish and fishing and well......you have a slice of paradise on earth. Tim Bailey is the brains behind the operation along with his wonderful staff of Nubian guides and crew who look after you on this... More

My thanks to all the crew who made our voyage from Aswan to Abu simbel such a memorable trip. This is a fantastic boat and the crew were so helpful to the 14 passengers that made the trip. It is such a shame to see only one boat running and so little people visiting such a beautiful place in the... More

Sailing on the Omar el Khayam out of Luxor, we travelled up river towards Abu Simble stopping off at various places of interest on the way, the most outstanding was Dakka and Wadi al Subu temples on the west bank of lake Nasser. The boat anchored off shore and we were ferried over to the shore, a short walk and... More

What a peaceful couple of days...no honking horns, no barking dogs, no mad traffic! Living in Cairo can become overwhelming, this is a wonderful escape. 4 days and 3 night of cruising on peaceful Lake Nassar on board the Prince Abbas. Thoroughly recommended.

Trip took place Dec 2012. Three nights with African Angler and four days fishing; three nights on the Kasr Ibrim cruise boat. African Angler was fantastic for our families. The situation is slightly rustic, depending on your expectations, but we loved it! eight of us and four boats and seven attendants tending to our needs--we felt like royalty. The food... More

African anglers' speciality is fishing trip, but for some reason, they decided to offer cruise on the lake Nasser to go to Abu Simbel temple. What a disappointment... Desite we selected the house boat (over 2000 Euro/5 days/ 2 adults+2 kids) for more comfort, we ended on little dinguy boats, with one cabin (2 single beds) and 2 extra beds... More

This is an amazing experience, not to be missed. African Angler provides house boats for sleeping, a restaurant boat which serves up superb meals, and small day boats for fishing. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were comfortable, well fed and treated with so much hospitality. Just two nights on the lake and we felt completely relaxed. Highly recommend... More

The cruise was advertised as a 3 nights / 4 days cruise and I was looking forward... More
