    Depart by "feluccas" (traditional Egyptian sailing boats) and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the magnificent stretch of the Nile as you sail towards the unspoiled and exotic island of Basma. Once there, you will become totally detached from today's boisterous world as you revel in the privacy and the serenity of the island.

    In preparation for lunch, you can be assisted to bake your own tasty pita bread on the traditional Egyptian clay stove. A special buffet luncheon and barbecue grill will be set up for you; the only indication that you are in the 20th century! After lunch, wander through this haven of peace where you can see various citrus and vegetable plantations as well as goat pens and chicken coops. Your felucca sailors and the staff hosting you on the island will all be dressed in traditional garments. You too will be provided with galabeyas, traditional loose fitting garments notably famous for keeping you cool.
