Tailor-Made Cruise on the Nile – Abercrombie and Kent
Long ago, dahabiehs (traditional lanteen-rigged sailboats) transported people and goods up and down the Nile. Today they offer a tranquil cruise experience, distinctly different from larger cruise ships. Abercrombie & Kent’s newest offering, the Zein Nile Chateau, was thoughtfully designed for serenity, space and elegance. Due to its smaller size and ability to dock anywhere, it is ideal for families and small groups of friends travelling together.
Dahabiehs offer a unique and intimate sailing experience on the Nile. The Zein Nile Chateau is the first dahabieh to be built to international luxury standards, with four spacious cabins and two suites, decorated with motifs inspired by Egyptian history, culture and geography. All cabins feature column-to-column windows and are fully air-conditioned.
The Upper Deck Salon and Dining Room features floor-to-ceiling glass doors. There is also a Cigar Lounge and Library. The Sun Deck has an oasis pool, outdoor shower and an open, Arabian-style sky lounge for star gazing under the clear desert skies. The boat is staffed by a small team who look after guests’ every need. Seven-night charters from $29,600 for up to 12 guests.
Tailor Made Private Travel has been an Abercrombie & Kent specialty for nearly 50 years. A&K’s Egypt specialists will recommend a dahabieh suited to the needs and interests of your group. Each vessel has comfortable cabins with private, en suite facilities; distinctive dining with exceptional service; and spacious lounges and sundecks for al fresco dining.
With a dahabieh serving as a floating hotel, it is possible to go beyond Luxor and the Valley of the Kings, continuing past some of the most beautiful scenery along the river. The Temple of Horemheb is cut into the riverside rocks at Gebel Silsila; the pre-Dynastic capital of Upper Egypt, El-Kab, has tombs and temples dedicated to the vulture goddess, Nekhbet.
