ASWAN & ABU SIMBEL


ASWAN Aswan is an eclectic mix of Arabic, Coptic and Nubian influences which have left it with a unique and vibrant culture that sits perfectly with some of antiquity’s most impressive monuments. Egypt’s most southerly city marks the ancient limits of Pharaonic power where Egypt and Africa meet with colour and flair.


SOFITEL OLD CATARACT, ASWAN Built on a shelf of pink granite, overlooking the deserts of ancient Nubia, the Victorian facade and polished marble of the Old Cataract is steeped in history and luxurious elegance. Recently renovated, the hotel offers guests the distinctive choice between the ornate heritage of its Old Palace and the lavish comforts of its Nile Wing.


CRUISING ON LAKE NASSER A Lake Nasser cruise offers a wonderful scene of endless desert landscapes and staggering monuments, whose shimmering colours change dramatically under the burning desert sun. Whilst arriving at the stunning temples of Abu Simbel by water is, for many, an experience that is truly unforgettable.


ABU SIMBEL


Conceived by Ramses II, Abu Simbel is one of antiquity’s most spectacular temple constructions. Built to convey Pharaonic power to Egypt’s southern neighbours, its dramatic rescue from the rising waters of Lake Nasser in 1963 was no less an achievement of human ingenuity and artistry.
