Rich in culture, history and sensory indulgence, visiting Egypt and Jordan leaves a lasting impression.
And one of the world’s leading exponents of enriching travel experiences, Scenic is fittingly making a return to this dramatic part of the world.
The exclusive charter of the 36-passenger, five-star, Sanctuary Sun Boat III, offers guests an unparalleled, sumptuous and exclusive opportunity to cruise the Nile and soak in the history of this fabled land.
With interiors celebrating the glory days of river sailing in the 1920s-30s, the river yacht has spacious cabins with oversized windows for optimal viewing, plus mini-bar, safe, and satellite TV. Four-poster beds are draped with Egyptian cotton linens, and all bathrooms have a bathtub.
Choose from one of three suite types onboard – relax in a Luxury Cabin, indulge in the Presidential Suite, or discover tranquillity and elegance in one of the two Royal Suites.
The ship’s interior provides well thought-out spaces, including the copper-tray fine-dining restaurant, and Sahara and H.Carter lounges.
In addition to the first-class dining, entertainment from traditional belly-dancers and musicians add to the exotic atmosphere.
Egyptologists take you on shore excursions to the ancient lands of kings and queens where you’ll explore temples, tombs, museums, pyramids, burial sites and more. You will live a history that has to be experienced first-hand.
This Scenic adventure highlights the magnificent temples of Abu Simbel, the Valley of the Kings and Temple of Hathor at Dendera.
In the Kingdom of Jordan, discover the capital Amman, before experiencing the World-Heritage listed city of Petra. The Nabataeans settled in Jordan over 2,000-years-ago, building the stunning Treasury which stands over 40-metres high. You’ll see it by day and return at night to see it lit by candlelight.
The dramatic desert landscapes of Wadi Rum, with its ancient-valleys and weathered sandstone mountains, provide a dramatic backdrop for your stay in the luxurious campsite, Sun Camp.
You’ll want to rise early to experience the dramatic stillness that comes with morning in the desert, as the rising sun casts ever-changing colours on the sand and rock-filled landscape.
In Aqaba, cruise and snorkel the Red Sea in a glass bottom boat to view spectacular marine life, or enjoy the facilities as you relax at the resort spa.
Separating Jordan and Israel, you’ll arrive at the Dead Sea. Float in the salty waters or take advantage of a therapeutic mud bath in the mineral-rich sediment.
