  • Day 3 – Nile cruise (Wadi El Seboua)

Breakfast onboard; You will start your visit to Wadi El Seboua temple, which is one of the Nubian temples that moved from the original location several kilometers to North West of the original one “Wadi El Seboua” dedicated to the god Amon Ra and god Ra Hor Akhty.

Not far from Wadi El Sebou, you will visit the temple of Dakka (which is named after a nearby village called Dakka. It is the only temple in Nubia oriented north-south to parallel the course of the Nile. The huge pylon, unusually separated from the temple proper, was added by the Romans and contains storerooms in its three interior levels.

Another Ptolemaic temple in the vicinity is called the Moharraqa Temple. Since its former location was threatened by flooding from the Nile due to the construction of the Aswan Dam, this small temple was dismantled in 1961 by the Egyptian Antiquities Service. It was subsequently rebuilt along with the Temple of Dakka in 1966.

Lunch will be served on board while sailing to Amada temple, visit the Amada temple. It was constructed on its original site, on the left bank of the Nile, by Tuthmosis III and Amenophis II (18th Dynasty) was dedicated to the god Amon Ra and god Rahorakhty. It is the oldest of the Nubian temples, dating from the New Kingdom.

Then you will continue your visit to the temple of El Derr which is in very bad condition of preservation and badly damaged. The temple of Derr originally sat on the Nile’s east bank a few miles to the south and was dedicated to the sun god.

Continue the tour to Penout tomb A few hundred meters away from El Derr temple, a pyramid-shaped hill containing the only tomb saved from the floods comes into sight. The tomb belongs to Benout, the powerful viceroy of Nubia who was in charge of supplying stone for the statues of Ramses VI in the 11th Century BC. The tomb is particularly interesting not only for its depiction of the afterlife but for its many vivid paintings of scenes of life in Nubia at the time. Back to the Nile for dinner and overnight.
