DAHABIYA HADEEL

A LEISURELY PACE

Carrying a small group of passengers, the Hadeel invites you to explore the Nile as it was meant to sailed – under the canvas of a vintage dahabiya sailboat.

For those looking to enjoy Egypt at a leisurely pace, a Dahabiya cruise is hard to beat. These traditional wooden sailing boats were originally designed to take 19th century travellers along the Nile in comfort and style, and the same is true today, but with a myriad of modern comforts.

Secure one of the eight cabins aboard the Dahabiya Hadeel and enjoy the river breeze as you drift from temple to temple using only the power of wind. Drink in the passing landscapes and peruse the spectacular historic sites that line the riverbank between Luxor and Aswan, as well as small islands and off-the-beaten-track spots that larger vessels cannot access.

Beautifully fitted out with dark wood panelling and lavish furniture, the interiors evoke a colonial atmosphere, whilst the partially shaded top deck offers guests the opportunity to recline on comfy deck chairs whilst taking in the Nile vistas. Carrying just 16 passengers, the the guiding is very personalised.
