Originally intended to relocate millions of Egyptians from overcrowded cities into a “New Nile Valley,” the project includes plans for hundreds of thousands of hectares of irrigated farmland. Like the lakes that formed in this region, this irrigation project relies upon water from the Nile River.

It is situated 55 kilometers from the western coast of the High Dam and 1 km south-east of the Aswan/Abou Simbel route. It's located 90 kilometers north of Abou Simbel City. The Waleed bin Talal farm and the Aswan/Abu Simbel road encircle what is thought to be a desert region.

Egypt's Toshka Lakes were developed in the 1980s and 1990s by diverting water from Lake Nasser into the Sahara Desert using a man-made canal.

 The Nubian Museum in Aswan is a fascinating museum that showcases the history, culture, and heritage of the Nubian people.
