Camels

Enjoy the smooth, gliding motion of one of our friendly camels as you travel through the palm trees and sugar cane fields. Or perhaps you would like a romantic sunset ride along the Nile or up to the desert. All our camel rides are suitable for any rider and you will be led by a guide on foot.

  • Trip 1 is a gentle one hour ride through the villages and palm trees along the River Nile. See the royal ibis and the kingfishers and watch the water buffalo bathing in the water. This is the perfect opportunity to observe the wildlife and get a true feeling for the Egyptian way of life .
  • Trip 2 is a ride through the sugar cane and banana fields. See the farmers working the land and pass through the different villages along the canals. See if you can spot a sugar cane cat! Enjoy the spectacular beauty of Mount Thebes  in the distance and ride up to the magnificent Habu Temple.
  • Trip 3 is a desert ride passing through the tranquil countryside on the way. You will see the Christian monastery at the foot of Mount Thebes and pass by the ruins of the Palace of Malqata,  and  the historic French archaeological dig house. Time seems to stand still here. The climax of your ride is observing the spectacular sunset over the sand dunes.
  • Our desert trip. By special arrangement we can meet you in the desert with the camels and you can spend up to 3 hours just riding in the desert. Please contact us by phone or Whatsapp in advance if you would like to do this trip.

After each trip you will be served refreshments in the family house.
