Ferry Aswan/Wadi Halfa damaged and out of order?
We just met two travellers who took the Wadi Halfa / Aswan ferry and got stuck with their ferry somewhere close to Aswan (the ferry crashed into a rock, we were told). All the passengers had to be rescued in 12 hours.
Does anyone has accurate information about this incident and does anyone know if this ferry is just being repaired and used again?
We intend to take the ferry from Aswan to Wadi Halfa in 2 weeks, but don't know if this would be possible now. We cannot reach Mr Salah on his mobile (maybe we have a wrong number?).
p.s. we also heard that people did use the road from Egypt to Sudan, although they had to pay USD 1000. Does anyone has more information about this alternative (just in case the ferries stopped their services now).
