A felucca is a traditional sailing boat made of wood that is used especially for river cruises in the protected waters of the Red Sea and the eastern Mediterranean. They are especially popular along the Nile River in Egypt.

A felucca boat consists of one or two lateen sails. Normally feluccas have the capacity to carry about ten passengers and the crew usually consists of two - three people.

Felucca sailing boats are used all over the Nile near Aswan. Especially near Elephantine Island. They are really fun to ride on and their owners seem to have a lot of fun taking us on our tours. When we started out, the sailors soon got us all to sing and dance as we sailed the Nile. What a happy time we all had!

If you enlarge our Google Map of Elephantine Island, you will see many Felucca sailing boats around the island.

The Cairo International Airport (IATA: CAI, ICAO: HECA) is the busiest airport in Egypt and is located to the north-east of the city around 15 km from the business area of the city.

Cairo International is the second busiest airport in Africa with over 65 airlines using the Cairo airport (including charter airlines) and 9 cargo airlines. With the assimilation of EgyptAir into Star Alliance in July 2008 the airport has the potential to be a major hub with its positioning between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. In 2008, the airport served 14,360,175 passengers and it is one of the top 100 airports in the world.

The airport handles both domestic and international flights, and is open 24 hours a day.

We suggest flying into Cairo and staying in one of their many fine hotels when touring the Egyptian Musium in Cairo and the ruins in the surrounding areas.

We have links on this page that will connect you with flights into Cairo and several of the best hotels in Cairo.

A second option is to fly directly to Aswan.

The Aswan International Airport (IATA: ASW, ICAO: HESN), also known as Daraw Airport, is the airport located in Aswan, Egypt. You can arrange flights directly to Aswan, If you wish.

After getting a flight and a hotel we suggest asking your hotel concierge to arrange either a car or a tour of Elephantine Island, Aswan, or the Cairo area. If you call their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Egypt. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem, doing it this way!

Therefore, we have placed links to Priceline.com on this page so you can arrange your flights into and out of Cairo or Aswan; as well as your hotel, when visiting this area.
