Aswan Budget Safaris
Aswan budget safaris offer a far more relaxed and smaller destination for budget travellers compared the more tourist-orientated Cairo or Luxor, making it ideal for backpacking or overlanding trips.
Aswan has a number of granite quarries from which most of the Obelisks that can be found in Luxor were sourced. This town was widely regarded as the ancient Egyptians' gateway to Africa.
Highlights to experience in Aswan include the range of souqs (markets) selling everything from crafts to carpets, Nubian Museum, Unfinished Obelisk, Sehel Island which sells beautiful local jewellery, Kitcheners Island which has stunning botanical gardens to explore, Tombs of the Nobles, Mausoleum of the Aga Khan, Kalabsha Temple and camel ride to the Monastery of St Simeon.
