Independent. Honest. Comprehensive.
Dahabiays.com was launched in 2022 to be a complete information resource for future visitors to Egypt to learn about the history, uniqueness, and availability of traditional sailing yachts on the Nile River in southern Egypt, which are colloquially called dahabiyas.
This site was the vision of John Nicholson-Navarre, a travel industry entrepreneur and serial content creator with a passion for promoting travel to Egypt and showing the world what a wonderful, safe, and magical destination Egypt truly is.
In addition to creating Dahabiyas.com, John is better known for being the creator of EgyptTravelBlog.com as well as the host of The Egypt Travel Podcast and The Egypt History & Culture Podcast. He also runs an exclusive travel company called Egypt Elite, through which he has come to visit, tour, and sail on numerous dahabiyas all over Upper Egypt.

If you are a dahabiya owner or a dahabiya company manager and you would like your boats to be added to the listing of dahabiyas on Dahabiyas.com, please feel welcome to reach out to us and we would be happy to schedule a visit and tour of your boats for verification and inclusion on Dahabiyas.com.
