"River Nile" River Nile Tip by leffe3

River Nile, Cairo: 25 reviews and 42 photos


Access to the banks of the Nile are not as straighhtforward as I had imagined - few opportunities for sweeping views. The island of Zamelek offers you the best opportunities in central Cairo - mainly because there are any number of private homes, clubs, diplomatic centres etc whose demands on prime real estate make it difficult to get to the river.

The northern tip of Zamelek offers you open views - problem being it's alos one of the ugliest views in Cairo!!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
