We got the ferry north in december last year
we organised the ferry through a guy named Mohamed Abouda who is based in Aswan, firstname.lastname@example.org
mb+20125111968 hes a realy nice guy and knows everything about the ferry,he also helped us get the truck into egypt ie all the insurance,egypt plates etc you could do it by yourself but would take a very very long time as you need to go to loads of different ofices.With his help it still took 1 1/2 days !!!, he charges $100 for his help,We (Oasis Overland) have used him loads of times
We got a guy named Midhat Mahir who runs a tour company in Khartoum to help organise all our photo permits,alein registration etc. midhat.sudan@gmail
+249 (0)912253484 or 121313101 again realy nice guy,he has a brother who lives in Wadi Halfa named Mazar Mahir , email@example.com
+249 918335149,+249 122380740, He helped us with sudan side of things,he even managed to get me onto the barge to travel with the truck, 3 very long days.....
Id contact Mazar first and let him know when youll be up there as he may already have others organised for the barge
Just out of interest they reckon in the next few years the ferry will be no more and there will be a fast ferry (african Fast) between Wadi Halfa and Abu Simbel so will make life easy....
Where abouts are you now?
