    Don't miss the boat! Or slip!

    Kom Ombo Temple

    When our ship pulled into Kom Ombo, we docked up against several other similar cruise boats. We then had to walk through the reception area of each boat to get to shore. This was the easy bit.

    Once on shore - the sandy banks of the Nile - we had to clamber up the steep river bank, which was difficult as it was mainly sand and a bit of scrub. Then, to get to the temple we had to walk along a narrow sandy path in the dark for about 5 minutes until we neared the temple and sturdier ground.

    After a quick visit to the temple we had to hurry back to the boat, being careful not to slip off the narrow path, looking for where are cruise ship had been moored...

    Confusingly, many of the boats had already left and the remaining boats had moved around, so that the boat we had originally walked through to get to shore was no longer there.....luckily we eventually located it.....then had to slide back down the steep river bank, and jump back on board, shoes full of sand....just in the nick of time for our boat to depart!

    Especially in this area of the temple of crocodiles - locals will try to sell some baby crocs.
