As we leave the shaded medieval alleys and magnificent Temple of Khnum in Esna behind us, Captain Mohamed unfurls the splendid sails of the Dahabeeya Abundance. Dahabeeyas need to be pulled by a strong tugboat when there is no wind.
Esna – Step Back Into Time

Esna – Step Back Into Time

After our first taste of the dreamy luxury of sailing on the Nile from Luxor on the beautiful Dahabeeyah Abundance, we pass through the mighty locks that regulate the powerful flow of our eternal River Nile at Esna. There, we disembark for our first stop on our magical journey down the Nile.
Simplicity is the new luxury

Simplicity is the new luxury

Gone are the days of posh and garish exaggerations, of bigger, better, faster. The luxury we offer to our guests is authenticity, simplicity, time for reflection. Sailing on a dahabiya, a traditional Egyptian Nile sailing ship, is the ideal vessel to travel slowly and experience peace and tranquility.

A day on the Dahabiya ABUNDANCE – Wadi el Kheir

Never in my life had I thought that I would ever own a sailing ship like the dahabiya, not even in my dreams. I used to travel on ships when I lived in the South Pacific, but that wasn’t always pleasant, because sometimes I get seasick. A sailing ship on the Nile is a different story.
