The Pharaonic Village on Jacob's Island offers a theme park-style guide to ancient Egypt. Visitors are taken on a motorised barge through a network of canals, or left to wander among the numerous exhibits - some of which are living.

In converting Jacob Island into a reconstruction of ancient Egypt, Dr Ragab began by planting 5000 trees of different types to screen the island from modern Cairo. He searched the world for plants, seeds and even birds which had flourished in ancient Egypt but were no longer present. The island now includes nine hectares of papyrus.
