For centuries archaeologists and adventurers have travelled through Egypt, a land with an irresistible attraction, blessed by the River Nile, which flows from the South to the North.
These river-going sailboats were common in Egypt in the days of the monarchy (1920’s-40’s) when aristocrats and sophisticated travelers loved to cruise The Nile in style. They rented the boats for weeks at a time as they made their way from temple to temple enjoying the river breeze.
The boats had four to ten cabins, bathrooms, and a host of servants. The dahabiya’s were popular amongst those who wished to enjoy Egypt at a leisurely pace, drink in the landscapes and peruse the monuments and villages on the riverbanks.
We have revived those elegant days for you, but with the modern comforts and conveniences.
We are proud to offer the discriminating traveler comfortable accommodations, exquisite dining and a peaceful journey on The Dahabiya Princess Hanna.
