The Nile is the world’s longest river and a luxury cruise on an elegant ship is surely the most relaxing way to discover the cultural landmarks and archaeological sites of Egypt. Retrace the routes followed by Egypt’s pharaohs from Luxor and wonder at the views over Lake Nasser from Aswan’s High Dam.
We offer an elegant cruise experience along the Nile on The Oberoi Zahra. Highlights include the famed Valley of the Kings with more than sixty tombs, chambers and halls: the most famous of which, Tutankhamun, contains a tomb with the mummy in situ. The magnificent Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, dedicated to Egypt’s greatest female pharaoh, and the Colossi of Memnon require special mention, as does the Luxor Museum and Karnak Temple. At Edfu there’s a well preserved temple dedicated to Horus, and the Aswan High Dam, built during the 1960’s, boasts impressive views over Lake Nasser.
The sleek Oberoi Zahra offers unrivalled luxury, fine cuisine and personalised service. The 25 stylishly appointed luxury cabins boast a contemporary design and feature panoramic windows affording magnificent views, and two very spacious luxury suites additionally feature a separate living room, private terrace and open air Jacuzzi.
The ship has a swimming pool, a gym and massage facilities, laundry service, library, and a delicious international a la carte menu. Oberoi Zahra’s exclusive itineraries are accompanied by English speaking Egyptologists.
