With a history dating back as early as 3100 BC—the time of some of Africa’s oldest civilizations—Nubia has long fascinated visitors to southern Egypt and northern Sudan. Here are some rewarding ways to discover Nubians’ unique culture and heritage.

  • Visit with a Nubian family in a traditional community on the banks of the Nile River.
  • Sail the Nile River to Soheil Island to observe daily life at a Nubian village.
  • Chat with the locals over a glass of Egyptian coffee or karkade (hibiscus tea).
  • Dig deeper into Nubian history at the Nubian Museum in Aswan, as well as the Aswan High Dam.
  • Explore Gharb Soheil Village, a fishing village turned open-air museum.
