Comments: 

"... The only route from Sudan into Egypt (except flying)is via this ferry.

Officially it is only for foot passengers, but we were allowed to put the bikes in the corridor, after a hair-raising gangplank entry. As an extra tip - we put our tent up on the deck of the ship.

Midhat is an extremely knowledgeable and helpful person who helped with all the bureaucracy of taking our bike out of Sudan as well as helping us save quite a bit of money. He is easily found by asking in town. If anyone does meet up with him - say Hello from Tiffany and Maggie."

Additional info from various sites:

Ferries depart from Egypt (High Dam) on Saturdays, and from Wadi Haifa (Sudan) on Tuesdays.

1st class fare is LE 131.00, 2nd class fare is LE 77.54. No prices for motorcycles, but as Tiffany says, it's officially a passenger only ferry!
