Nile River Cruising

Recognised as the longest river in the world, the Nile rises from the south of the equator through north east Africa,

Recognised as the longest river in the world, the Nile represents the major source of life and prosperity in a region starved of rainfall for millennia. Not only the longest, the river is arguably the most iconic in the world, playing a pivotal role in the dynasty of the Ancient Egyptians and the permanent settlements that arose permanently along its banks.

Considered sacred, such is its contribution to local life, the Nile has long been a fascination for outsiders, eager to conquer its vast history and alluring wonders – awash with World Heritage sites and hidden gems aplenty, this colourful region provides the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the mighty pharaohs.

Traversing a staggering 11 countries on its epic 4000+ mile journey from source to mouth, this mammoth waterway is a must-see on any visit to Egypt. Cutting through lands alive with history, you’ll explore a truly unique world teaming with ancient temples, hieroglyphics and the unmistakable silhouettes of pyramids.
