Responsible tourism

Nile traditional cruise of Egypt

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

With such a rich history, the southern stretches of the Nile has long attracted travelers, and whilst the antiquities are available for all to enjoy, the way that we visit can make a huge difference, ensuring that generations to come can share this privilege.

This trip travelers by Dahabia – a traditional type of small boat that carries a maximum of 18 people. This allows us to lead river cruising with controlled sanitary drainage disposal (which takes place in the assigned harbors) and prevents its discharge to the River Nile, thus avoiding the pollution generated by larger cruise liners.

By keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites we visit – particularly important as this trip visits some remote sites that aren’t policed by tourist regulators.

Community

In addition to the environmental advantages, the Dahabia program has helped us create a stable relation between environmental tourism and the understanding of sustainable development. By involving local villages and visiting human settlements on the banks of the river, we aim to draw tourism away from the main sites of Luxor and Aswan, and to support the socially and economically underdeveloped parts of Egypt. Travelers have the chance to cross beyond the regular travel programs to Egypt and understand more about the country and the people, ensuring that funds are channelled into local communities.

All of the services of the program are provided by various Egyptian suppliers – many of them are young Egyptian entrepreneurs, giving them the ability to control their own future rather than just wait for the government’s employment

We use local guides, staff, lodges, and buy food locally, thereby directly benefiting the local economy.
