I have been to Egypt four times over the past two decades, and when I was there a few months ago with our Wild Women Egypt tour, I realized why this place has such a hold on my heart.
Ancient legend says that once you have touched the Nile River you are destined to return to Egypt. So when one of the women who joined our Egypt tour this year told me, as she stood smiling in the Nile River, that she just had to return, I wasn’t surprised. She just wrote me to say she was on her way back to Egypt already, she loved it so much!
Another women on our trip wrote this amazing story called “Return to the Nile” about her experience:
“I am sure we will all cherish the four amazing days we spent on the Nile itself. The dahabiya was glorious, operating fully under sail when the wind agreed, with fresh, cozy cabins on the lower deck and an entire canopied upper deck, of beautiful wood, furnished with comfortable furniture and open to the breezes and the views. At one point, one of my companions declared to all and sundry “ I would like to point out that this is the Nile River flowing at my feet!” We dined together on that upper deck, as everywhere, like queens, treated to wonderfully fresh, local, organic fruits and vegetables and a variety of savoury traditional Egyptian dishes (such as falafels, hummus and tarjins)!
To me, this time on the Nile was more than just a luxurious cruise. It was a sensory adventure and an education. I felt the power and immensity of this timeless waterway, understood more clearly how it is indeed the lifeblood of Egypt. As a self-proclaimed naturalist, I drank in the grasses and trees, the birds, the free ranging donkeys, oxen and camels, the plantations and the simple and wholesome day to day life of people along its banks. I witnessed the impact that this mighty river has, and has had, on the life of so many.”
If Egypt is calling to your heart, I hope you will join us for an unforgettable adventure tour there next year. If have any Qs contact Jennifer Haddow, Director, Wild Women Expeditions
