Elephantine Island

As its name suggests the island is known to host over fifty elephants alongside the water coastlines. And none of these elephants are captivated or anything they roam around freely and it is a record that they have never harmed any of the locals or tourists itself. The elephants you can spot bathing and play in the river, sometimes you can even spot them with their babies and it is so lovely that you cannot take your eyes away from it. You can help these elephants bath and even ride them through the waters, making it a completely different kind of adventure.

Abu Simbel

Abu Simbel is the heritage historical site registered under UNESCO. And it is very true to its title, it is one of the most intricate designing. Not only the architecture of this place is ancient but it has got an equal mix of modernization when it was restored and rebuilt. You can take a day trip to the monument which was earlier the palace to the Ramses rulers. However, this place is somewhat ruined, but it has got this huge ancient Statue on its entry that is a definite sight.
