Activities in Aswan

Famine Stela, Qubbet el-Hawa and Kitchener Island

1 review | 4 travellers
A complete tour to get to know in depth the archaeological and natural treasures of Aswan. The guide was very professional and explained in detail the history and curiosities of the places we visited. The Tombs of the Nobles are spectacular and it is a place that everyone should visit in Aswan. Also, we did the tour totally alone, so it was a private activity for us. We are delighted and recommend it to everyone. It is a very complete and very exciting tour.

Itinerary

Having picked you up at your boat or the hotel where you're staying we'll make our way to the East bank of the Nile, taking a boat from there to Sehel island.

Once on the island, we'll see one of Egypt's hidden gems, the Famine Stela, a natural rock depicting the Pharoah making an offering to the gods Anuket, Sater and Khnum. Below can be found a 32 line text which narrates the story of Pharoah Djoser asking the gods that the Nile flood, to end seven years of drought. In thanks, the Pharaoah built the temples on Elephantine.

Our next stop is the Qubbet el-Hawa Necropolis, known as the Valley of the Princes. Here have been excavated various tombs of high ranking Egyptian officials and nine intact mummies from the Pharaonic period, including one of a crocodile.

Returning to our boat, we'll sail to Kitchener Island, an island on the Nile which was converted into a botanical garden in 1928. In this paradise full of trees, flowers, unusual plants and exotic birds, you'll feel yourself briefly transported to another country. 

Sailing the Nile once more, we'll take your back to your boat or hotel.
