Local Activities

You may also enjoy taking part in one or more of the other activities which are available on the West Bank.

Just ask at reception and we’ll be pleased to organise it for you.

Balloon Flight

Take a dawn flight in a hot air balloon, drifting gently with the wind over the temples and villages of the West Bank – a great way to start the day.

Horse Riding

Go for a horse ride into the country around Gezira. All abilities are catered for, so whether you are experienced or not, you should enjoy the experience.

Camel and Donkey Rides

Take a camel ride from Gezira and around the neighbouring farmland – through fields of sugar cane and palm trees. Or try a donkey ride to the West Bank monuments – the sure-footed donkeys can even negotiate the tracks above the Temple of Hatshepsut, giving wonderful views of the temples and monuments.

Quad Biking

One of the latest attractions on the West Bank – go quad biking into the desert and wadis of the Theban hills. All safety gear is provided, and training given before you set off.

Sail on a feluccaSail the Nile on a felucca and watch the wildlife along the riverbank. Either take a cruise for a couple of relaxing hours, or visit Banana Island, where you can enjoy a pleasant meal on the riverbank, or browse the bazaar. A sunset trip is an unforgettable experience.
Hire a Bike

Hire a bike and take a leisurely ride around the monuments of the West Bank – probably the best way to take in the countryside, especially in the cool winter months.
