The DAHABIYA was the normal way to ascend the Nile .At the period of 1920 - 1940's it was communly used during those elegant days of monarchy when aristrocates, pashas, emirs, sultans and sophisticated travelers love to cruise the Nile in style and even after that they remained somewhat popular amongst  the wealthy. It took from 2 to 3 months to ascend the Nile under wind power and a month and a half to float back down stream, stopping at the great temples along the way.


The Dahabiya's were popular amongst those who wished to enjoy Egypt at a leisurely place, to drink on the landscape and peruse the monuments and villages on the riverbanks . Now days, we have revived those elegant days with modern comfort and conviniences.
