Private Trip to Abu Simbel Temples from Aswan

Breathtaking archaeological exploration tour of the Abu Simbel temples.

If someone comes to Egypt and does not visit the pyramids and the temples at Abu Simbel, it would be as if the visitor had not visited Egypt.

These temples consist of two massive rock temples in southern Egypt, near the border with Sudan. They are situated on the western bank of Lake Nasser, about 230 km southwest of Aswan.

When you visit the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel, you see first-hand the temple of the powerful King Ramses II and the temple of his wife Nef ertari, the most beautiful among the beautifuls. It is a breathtaking tour.

Looking at the greatness of the construction, the enormous facade, the colors and the drawings inside the rooms of the temple, you can see the majesty of the royal Egyptian dynasty and marvel at the craftsmanship.

This is a two-hour tour from Aswan by car. Your guide will take you to: Abu Simbel Temple Complex, Abu Simbel, Aswan Governorate, and the Nile River Valley.

You will receive bottled water when you meet your guide. This is not a wheelchair-accessible tour. This is an approximate 10-hour tour.

Chobe National Park Safari – Glamping in Botswana

Take a glamping safari into Botswana's first national park.

This adventure on the Chobe River takes you near Victoria Falls. Arguably this is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was named by Scottish missionary and Africa explorer David Livingstone for Queen Victoria.

Chobe National Park is Botswana's first national park, and also the most biologically diverse. Located in the north of the country, it is part of the Chobe riverfront. The campsite is situated in the extreme northeast of the park.

Day 1:

We begin our day exploring the Chobe River through Chobe National Park. We will drive to the river after meeting guests at the airport or one of the borders (Kasane International Airport/Zambia or Zimbabwe border). The drive will be about 25 kms to our campsite going through the Chobe National Park.

Chobe National Park - puku antelope

Throughout the Chobe riverfront there are lush flood plains and dense woodland of mahogany, teak and other hardwoods now largely reduced by heavy elephant pressure. The Chobe River which flows along the Northeast border of the park, is a major watering spot, especially in the dry season (May through October) for large breeding herds of elephants, as well as families of giraffe, sable and cape buffalo.

The Chobe National Park flood plains are the only place in Botswana where the puku antelope can be seen.

Chobe National Park - carmine bee eater

Birding is also excellent here and large numbers of carmine bee eaters are spotted in the flood season. During the flood, various species of stork, duck and other waterfowl flock to the area.

This is likely Chobe's most visited section, in large part because of its proximity to the Victoria Falls. The town of Kasane, situated just downstream, is the most important town of the region and serves as the northern entrance to the park.

Day 2: 

Along the Chobe river front, we will do a morning game drive after breakfast and return to campsite around 11:00 am. Then we depart from campsite at 12:30 for a three-hour boat cruise in town which will end around 5 pm so that we have enough time to drive back to the campsite.

Day 3:

This morning we will take a game drive to see Botswana's plentiful herds of animals, before heading down to town around lunch time for a boat cruise with lunch on board. Later, we drive back to the campsite and will see more animals on an afternoon game drive.

Day 4:

We end our day of luxurious camping and return to the drop off point (Kasane International Airport/Zambia or Zimbabwe border).
