Lazuli dahabiya Itinerary

Lazuli Dahabiya – 6 Days – Esna / Aswan Every Sunday

Day 1: Luxor - Esna - EL Hegz

First day on Lazuli dahabiya.

Appointment with our guide for the visit of the Karnak temple famous for the immensity of its hypostyle hall (134 columns aligned in 16 rows, alternating open and closed papyriform capitals, more than 7 meters in diameter).

Then we leave by bus for 30 minutes drive to Esna, home port of the Lazuli dahabiya, an elegant boat with double Latin sails, a modern replica of the sacred barks of the Pharaohs.

Welcomed on board by the crew, the host (or hostess) offers us a wet towel scented with rose water to refresh us and as a sign of welcome glass of fresh carcadé (infusion of hibiscus flowers, an Egyptian specialty) or squeezed lemon juice, which we enjoy on the deck.

shaded, installed in deckchairs, or lying on cushions in the shade of stretched canvas to enjoy the landscape of the Nile’s shores.

We discover the boat, its cabins, their comfort (windows, bathroom with a sink, shower, private toilets), and the careful decoration brought to each one. The suite at the back of the boat has a private balcony.

Finally, at the bow, the library lounge and its benches decorated with abundant cushions, carpets, and decorative objects give it an oriental charm, a real invitation to a comfortable “meditation”.

Our sailing begins.

The afternoon is one of relaxation and contemplation. We reach El-Hegz, for a mooring at the edge of the sugar cane fields.

On the upper deck, we are invited to an Egyptian dinner concocted by our chef.

Day 2: EL Hegz - EL Kab - Edfu - Fawaza

Sail to El Kaab, a 5000-year-old city with traces of even older dwellings. El Kaab is surrounded by enormous mud-brick walls from the period 747 – 332 BC.

After breakfast, we visit the meeting place of Horus and his wife Hathor, coming from Dendera, during the festival of the “Beautiful Union”. Bas-reliefs and polychrome paintings decorate the walls of the tombs of the governors of Nekheb overlooking the ancient city.

A short stroll in the surroundings before resuming the navigation to Edfu.

Lunch on board.

On the river, it is the life of the fishermen that we discover onboard Sandals loaded with sugar cane or stones or traditional feluccas.

We soon arrive in Edfu for the visit to the temple dedicated to the falcon god Horus.

In small groups of 2 or 3, it is by carriage through the city that we reach the temple, one of the best-preserved in Egypt. It is also the one that best conveys the meditation and serenity of the sacred places. It is a true open book on the myths and legends of the Egypt of the Pharaohs.

Return by horse-drawn carriage on the boat, and resumption of navigation to the island of Fawaza.

Barbecue dinner on a sandy beach. The natural setting of this port of call is thus enhanced.

by a few lights at the foot of date palms, creating a festive atmosphere. For their part, the crew members, according to their tradition, light a fire, sing, and dance to the rhythm of the “darbouka” drums.

Day 3: Ramadi - Silsila - Hormeheb - Beshir

Breakfast and morning bath for those who wish precedes this new day of sailing.
Stopover in the small village of Ramadi. Deserted by tourism, these places allow direct contact without any mercantile considerations. With its houses adorned with frescoes recounting the owner’s trip to Mecca and its artisanal bakery, Ramadi is discovered in the middle of banana, sugar cane, and karkadé plantations. Before leaving the village, the crew stock up on fish such as perch and duck.

Lunch on board while sailing.

At the end of the day, we reach the site of Jebel Silsila. At this place, the Nile narrows to slip between steep sandstone cliffs. Throughout the New Empire and the Greco-Roman periods, thousands of men worked in the quarries of Silsila to extract the sandstone used to build temples.

Our walk along the rocky sandstone cliffs allows us to discover the quarries dug for several small chapels, the sanctuary of Horemheb, places of a celebration of the Nile. We will also reach the large flood steles.

After the visit departure to Beshir.

Dinner and overnight on board.

Day 4: Beshir - Daraw - Kom Ombo - Herdiab

Breakfast on board while sailing to Daraw. Departure for the visit of the temple of Kom Ombo, along the Nile, dedicated to Sobeck and Haroéris (Horus the old). There are mummified crocodiles found in the adjoining cemetery, the Egyptian calendar, surgical instruments arranged on a tray in front of Imhotep (doctor and architect of the Funeral Complex of Djoser), adored by the Roman Emperor Trajan kneeling.

After the visit, back on the boat, lunch while sailing to Herdiab, an island with a beautiful beach.

Swimming for those who wish.

Dinner and overnight on board

Day 5: Herdiab - Aswan

Breakfast on board while sailing to Aswan. Upon arrival, departure for the visit of Gharb Aswan, Nubian Village with traditional Nubian houses.

Afterward, we leave to visit the temple of Philae. This temple was moved by UNESCO between 1972 and 1980 to save it from the waters of the Nile. Located on an island accessible by a small boat, this Greco-Roman temple was for a long time the place of worship of the universal goddess Isis. At

At the beginning of the 19th century, and following the example of the first adventurers, Pierre Lotti, who nicknamed it “the pearl of Egypt”, went there in Dahabieh.
