Dahabeya Queen Farida

Dahabeya Queen Farida

Welcome onboard the Dahabeya Queen Farida in honour of the last Queen of Egypt Farida.
Queen Farida often travelled the Nile with her children on a dahabeya – called the golden boat.

The shallow draft of the Dahabeya allows her to pass the tributaries of the Nile and anchor on the banks.

Bird paradises on the small Nile islands and lush plantation oases line the banks of the Nile. Enjoy the peace and the spectacle of nature. Watch the life of the farmers and fishermen.

A unique way of sailing the river Nile awaits you as soon as you step onboard. A ship built from exquisite woods shimmers golden in the sun, so this justifies the traditional name
Dahabeya – the golden boat.
