Great place to stay in aswan egypt

With-out a doubt we have found the best spot to stay for Overlanders heading south to Wadi Hafi from Aswan. A cheap clean safe appartment with all facilities including safe storage for motorbikes, and 24hr security for vehicles in a quite Nuweiban village 4 klms from the center of town, with Internet,
Usd 10.00 per person per night with hot shower, and kitchen view of Nile from private garden balcony with 180 degree views set in a cliff-top breakfast dinner BBQ setting, WOW we got lucky meeting Galal Hamed who is a great guy and wants us to have the best time everyday.|(no camping by side of road anymore in Aswan) You can also pitch you tent on grass,,,,,,, yes grass!!!!!! and make your own deal with Galal. Galal arranged our Sudanese visas, booked our ferry spot , and barge for Victor our buggy and will be there for us when leaving ,,,,,,plus no extra charges ,,,,,,makes the dreaded ferry easy,,,,,yes we know about the road and getting saftey travel permits from Cario's secret police been there done that.
We hope all Ovelander contacts Galal he is just what we needed after 3 weeks in the desert,
Check this really great guy out galalaswan@yahoo.com
mobile 01006016422
we have no finacial interest in this ,,,,,,just a treat to find such a great place for the next leg north or south east or west
Safe travels to allwww.ouradventurebug,com the worlds most travel non-production vehicle 6years and 120 Countries ,,,,,home this year,

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
