• Explore Elephantine Island, which gets its name from the smooth grey boulders that surround the island and look like elephants in the water. This island was the original border town between Egypt and the Nubian lands to the south, and in ancient times was an important strategic position for both defense and trade.

• Explore the Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae, a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the western bank of Lake Nasser, a reservoir which formed after the Aswan High Dam was constructed on the Nile River. The relocation and reassembly of the Abu Simbel Temples was considered to be one of the greatest challenges in archaeological engineering, and the complex consists of two temples as well as four large statues of Ramesses II.

• Explore the Nubian Museum, which contains more than 3,000 Egyptian antiquities representing various ages, as well as a library, information center, and botanical gardens. These antiquities were saved during UNESCO’s International Campaign to Save the Monuments of Nubia, which were threatened by the construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s.
