"our pick" This modern hotel overlooking the desert and the Tombs of the Nobles is a great find, offering nine quiet and comfortable rooms with very clean shared bathrooms.

Your stay will also provide a welcome contribution to the local economy.

Our guesthouse and travel agency create work for restaurant and cleaning staff, facilitators, guides, drivers etc. Local grocers sell more.
The ferry to the city is often used, etc. Given the poor economic situation in the country all those contributions are very welcome.


And Aswan and surrounding area is safe as always!

African village


Who would not like to live once in his life in an African village?

Here is your chance! Guaranteed you will have a special holiday:
For the villagers, you are one of them, not a tourist. These villages are not crowded with tourists.You see the traditional Nubian life and discover at ease Nubia yourself.

Bet el Kerem is located on the west bank of the Nile within walking distance of the ferry boat to Aswan center. In less than fifteen minutes you are in the city.

This type of holiday is at a broad audience's taste: families with (small) children, singles, seniors and others.
One appreciates the contact with the population, the friendly atmosphere, the hospitality. And sees it as a good alternative to mass tourism or stay in big resorts.
