Bedouin Castle: Hotel, Safari, Nile Tours © 2013

ASWAN was the southern most town and border between Egypt and Nubia, with the exception of a few periods when Egypt’s influence extended further south.  This is the area of the first of a series of cataracts (where the Nile is narrow and full of large boulders).  This area has been important since pre-dynastic times and throughout Egyptian history.
