Welcome to the River Nile.

Egypt, one of the oldest civilisations in the world, is home to the River Nile: the longest river in the world. Since the ancient Egyptians believed that the Nile would carry them into the afterlife, almost all of the cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt lie along its banks.

See the wonders of ancient Egypt unfold before your eyes on The Oberoi Zahra, Luxury Nile Cruiser. Let us guide you around magnificent temples and five thousand years of culture. For your on board entertainment, our cruises also offer nightly traditional dance and music performances.

To ensure a truly memorable experience, we offer a limited number of luxury accommodations, all day fine dining and personalised spa treatments. Coupled with a sincere, courteous attention to your every need for an unmistakably Oberoi experience.
