  • This place is worth a visit, the Nubian tribe has great contributions to the Egypt history. You to go by a boat and they take you to a Nubian house, which is a model of how they lived, they serve you with tea, Brad, there is also crocodile which they believe you be god, once the crocodile becomes big they let go in Nile River. The huts are built with mud to keep in coming in dessert. The government takes care of them with various benefits. You get to see young children riding on the camel very fast, there are old cars. Also many handicrafts and shops.
