We travelled from the Botanical gardens in a motor boat to the Nubian Village. The colours are unreal. Walk up the steps into the village to be met by camel drivers. You can ride if you like.

A relaxing and scenic boat road out to village, then a fun afternoon of shopping. Visited a Nubian home for tea and a henna tattoo. There's camel rides available too.

The nubian village has its own taste of living and quietness. I went to Sehel and Heissa Island and they people there are really beautiful treating you and serving you. The food is great. They offered a lot of nice spices and other herbs which are worthy of trying.
