The Zarafa was built in the late 1800's, but has been refurnished for today’s modern comfort. The boat was formally used by Egypts royal families and later by celebrities for pleasure trips. The Zarafa explores the Nile in a traditional style visiting some unique places and monuments that are unattainable by modern cruise ships. Other memorable experiences include a barbeque on an isolated island or joining the 'chef' for green-grocery shopping in a rural market. This beautifully crafted wooden ship is outfitted in colonial style with oriental and Egyptian touches. The interiors boast period furnishing, and each cabin has its own distinct style and interior. The boat features a combination of nostalgic atmosphere and modern comfort, a pleasant place to relax and to enjoy the peace and silence. The salon is the perfect meeting place and sometimes, in cold winter days, dinner is served here. For relaxing and enjoying the passing landscape the sun deck is the place, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. The Zarafa is air-conditioned.
