Elephantine Island

Opposite Aswan City and close to the Old Cataract Hotel is Elephantine Island. A small Island yet significant in the history of Aswan. 


Less than a 10 minute Felucca ride  from Aswan Centre, 3 hours drive from Luxor, and a 1 hour flight direct from Cairo to Aswan. 

History and Sights: 

Probably the most beautiful place to visit in Aswan! The Elephantine island is  truly a paradise with wonderful gardens and some significant artifacts.It is a great place to spend some leisure time, wandering among the colourful houses of the Nubian villages Siou and Koti, fishing in the Nile, Bird watching or enjoying a picnic on the  banks of the River Nile and Cataract Islands.
