Discover Traditional Boatmaking

Go back to centuries gone by where craftsmen still build their boats as sons learn how to master traditions passed from their fathers and forefathers. See how each piece of wood is carefully selected and chiselled to form water tight vessels that even under the scorching sun does not give in to the pressure of the water. Have the unique chance to mix and mingle with the local tradesmen and enjoy a cup of traditional Sudanese coffee or a freshly brewed mint tea that respites the dry afternoon heat. Also take the opportunity to ride one of the boats and sail along the Nile powered by the wind that steadily blows its sail. An experience to be cherished and only selected few foreign visitors ever get the chance of experiencing.
