Our Itineraries.

itineraries-img 
 

The itineraries on The Oberoi Zahra are designed to allow you the opportunity to experience Egypt at a leisurely pace on board the most luxurious cruiser on the Nile. Enjoy unforgettable days of unravelling centuries of Egyptian history and discover the Nile and its wonders like never before.

English-speaking Egyptologists are available on board. Multi-lingual Egyptologists can be organised on prior notice.

Small luxury coaches are arranged at each stop to take guests sightseeing, while audio-visual presentations provide extra information about sights visited.

The facility of private docking arrangements, with access for physically-challenged guests, is unique to The Oberoi Zahra. We aim to ensure a relaxed experience while getting on, off and while on board the cruiser.
