The Sanctuary Cruise

The Sanctuary Cruise The Sanctuary Cruise

As one of the most modern and prestigious yachts currently cruising along Africa’s greatest river, the Sanctuary Nile Adventurer exudes contemporary style and ease. Its sun decks provide you with photogenic views of the passing mysteries of Egypt. Its cabins and suites all feature designer décor and ultra-modern facilities like en suite bathrooms and flat screen TVs. Its restaurant serves a delightful fusion of regional and international dishes in an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication.

And yet. And yet there is a distillation of the history of Egypt encapsulated in the Nile Adventurer; in its tented lounge walls, the lighting in the suites, the artefacts and furnishings on the after deck. Seven thousand years of history are echoed both in the style of your yacht as well as the white-sailed feluccas which still ply the Nile.

Accompanying you, and helping you gain a deeper insight into the Land of the Pharaohs, will be renowned Egyptologists – some of the most respected in the country. They will explain the importance of the temples and monuments of Luxor, Karnak and Philae. They will reveal the significance of hieroglyphics in the Valley of the Kings, and the rites enacted in the temples of Horus and Komombo.
