We hired bikes from the place in town. Real shame that they don't take better care of their bikes - there was a large selection but a couple of us had trouble with the gears jamming. For $30 a head, I would have expected a higher standard, and better maintained, bike. Having said that, the ride was fun - we were out for 3 hours and cycled around the villages, with the great guide pointing out lots of things, eg plants etc, along the way. We stopped at the other NRE site overlooking the Nile for a drink and liked it so much that we decided to come back there for the night.
We stayed in one of their tents overlooking the river - awesome views. The tent was a little musty but fine once we opened up the vents - which meant we awoke to that awesome view. The bar was a little noisy but nothing bad. The showers even have a view too! (No hot water but with that view it didn't seem to matter...) There's electric lights in the tents, and nice chairs to sit and enjoy the view. The pillows were rock solid but otherwise the beds were comfy enough. Would highly recommend!
