Hadeel Dahabiyya Cruise
Relying on the rivers currents and the gentle breeze, a journey by Dahabiya really is the traditional way to cruise the Nile. Dahabiyas are river-going sailboats which were common in Egypt in the days of the monarchy (1920s-40s) when aristocrats and sophisticated travellers loved to cruise the Nile in style.
Flanked by two lateen sails, this style of boat takes on the gentle rhythm of the river where the breeze often goes against the currents, and can access tranquil banks that larger boats cannot, offering a unique view of the rural Egypts daily life. This extremely relaxing way of cruising is ideal for a small group or for couples who wish to step back in time and experience the Nile on a more flexible itinerary.
The Hadeel Dahabiyya offers elegant accommodation in a beautiful, colonial style. Each cabins has an ensuite and all modern comforts. Additional facilities onboard include a jacuzzi and various communal areas including a lounge, dining room and sun deck.
