The Amoura is a two mast Egyptian dahabiya, which was built in 2008 and fully renovated in jan 2017. It is 38 metres in length and 6.5 meters wide and has 6 double cabins and 1 double suite, meaning there is a maximum of 14 guests, plus the crew. As the dahabiya has no engine, there is always an accompanying motorboat for towing it if the wind is calm. There is, however, a 24 hour electric power supply, with an onboard generator, and it runs at 220V.
As mentioned above, there are 6 double cabins, each one measuring approximately 13 square meters. These are furnished with either a twin or large bed; air-conditioning; wardrobe; big windows; shower; wash basin; and WC. The suite measures approximately 21 square meters and is furnished with a large double bed; private terrace; wardrobe; shower; wash basin; and WC.
There is a fully equipped kitchen, which also contains a water filter. From here is served the dahabiyas cuisine: traditional Egyptian foods, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea with pastries. Food and beverages are served all day, and night, long including tea, coffee and mineral water
The sundeck is 29 meters in length and hosts tables and chairs on the deck; an oriental seating area, and a sun lounger. The Amoura also has a salon/bar, which is 27 square meters, with comfortable seating area; air conditioning; satellite television; DVD´s; Internet; and a book corner.
You will be transferred to, or from, Esna in one of our air-conditioned vehicles free of charge, so there is no need to worry about getting to, or from, your embarkation/disembarkation point. Leave the worrying up to us, just relax and enjoy the serene silence as the dahabiya gracefully glides along the River Nile, visiting sites, such as Gebel El Silsila, where the larger Nile cruise boats cannot.
