Big Five Tours & Expeditions is pleased to announce that it is among the first tour operators selected to market Oberoi's new luxury ship, the Oberoi Zahra. Set for launch in the fall of 2007, this stylish cruiser will ply Egypt's Nile River. The ship is beautifully appointed in contemporary decor with large windows offering panoramic views of this timeless waterway.

Big Five has created a Nile River tour program to match this outstanding new Oberoi Nile cruise ship. Extraordinary Egypt is a 13-day program that provides guests with an unparalleled experience. They explore the frenetic lanes of old Cairo and the magnificent pyramids of Giza, bargain for treasures in Khan El Khalili Bazaar, discover ancient Alexandria and the temples of Luxor, and spend time in the Valley of Kings. They enjoy a special, private tour and reception at the temple of Hathor at Dendara, and travel to Abu Simble to discover the remarkable temples of Ramses II and Queen Nefertari.

The Oberoi Zahra will boast the largest rooms on the Nile River, with 25 luxurious, deluxe suites that measure 322 square feet, and two grand suites that are 645 square feet. After venturing into the antiquities of Egypt, guests return to the ship to savor 21st-century conveniences such as plasma TVs and wireless internet in all suites, a swimming pool, gym, and a full-service spa with three massage suites that feature Oberoi's special treatments.

Staff to guest ratios allow the same high standards that remain a signature of Oberoi's acclaimed Indian resorts. An international chef will ensure that the food is unrivaled. And, a resident Egyptologist will help guests understand this ageless land and its customs. The ship has a telescope for studying the night sky.
