We visited a home in the Nubian village in Aswan, Egypt. The boat ride up the Nile was pleasant as we looked at various species of birds. Although someone tried to go for a swim in the Nile, it was so cold that they quickly jumped out. We saw a couple of caged crocodiles outside one home and then got... More

Nubian's are very friendly people. They love to hang out, chat and drink tea. They are colorful and talented people. Visit the Nubian home in the middle of town where you can drink tea and hang with the family. It's a rare opportunity to see how these people live and what their homes are like. There are good restaurants and... More

The boat ride upstream on the Nile River through all the big boulders in the river where one could easily see the river's current was worth the whole trip to the Nubian Village and back to Aswan. The village was a most interesting look at the local Nubian's. The people were very friendly. We were taken into an elementary school... More

We went by boat on a trip to the Nubian Village that included a bird watching cruise with an Ornithologist. The variety of birds pointed out to us was quite large. We were able to get quite close to many especially those sitting on the river rocks. The river level in January was low so we were lucky. The Nubian... More

One excursion on our Uniworld Nile River Cruise included a visit inside a Nubian home. Our group was ferried to the Nubian village on the East Bank past Elephantine Island. With us was a Nubian guide who pointed out birdlife on the Nile shores and gave us background information about the Nubians. The Nubians had been relocated north of the... More
