Since Egypt's Prehistoric times
the Nile River valley provided the only route from the Mediterranean
world to interior Africa, with Nubia as the point of contact between
the two, a highway for diverse cultures and political powers during
thousands of years. However, it is recent history that provides two
of the greatest feats known to man. One the building of the immense
dam at Aswan and the other the engineering marvel of saving the various
antiquity sites that lined the old river shores. The Egyptian dam
took 30,000 men working around the clock for ten years to complete.
The reservoir that was created now stretches
some 300 miles from the dam all the way into the Sudan. Varying in
widths it averages about 6 miles across. Dotted with hundreds of islands
and abundant wildlife it features scenery combining natural beauty
with incredible history. Cruising aboard luxurous ships, designed
with a hint of history yet featuring the most modern conveniences.
