We crossed the river on one of the old sail boats in the evening and visited a Nubian home where we had dinner with our hosts. We all had a good time including our hosts as ours was a fun group. The traditional food was good as well. We did not tour the village as it was near dark when... More

A fine visit to a private home, tea and descriptions of life in the village. Camel-rides are offered for those interested. The crocodiles in the house were a nice twist!

The descendants of the Ancients are the Nubian. They are talented crafts people still today and have many fine things to offer like beautiful bead work and baskets. The Nile is lovely here and the spices and henna plenty. Anyone who visit the Village is sure to come away with a wealth of knowledge from the est people in Egypt... More

A really great way to understand how these people's lives have not changed much through the centuries. We were able to be a guest in one of these homes and enjoyed the friendliness of our hosts. Tea was served and after a brief tour of the premises we were given the pleasure/shock of holding one of their pet crocodiles! What... More

The Nubian farm was great, saw crocodiles, goats, and camels - and were able to feed the camels. Also had a look at a Nubian house - and tried the local 'coffee' (not to my taste!)
