Mr. Hadji Ibrahim had officcated as Robert Elwes' cook on his boat. Mr. Ibrahim went with Robert Elwes to up the Nile to Wady Halfa, the second cataract, “and had been a most excellent and faithful servant, and in those expeditions one’s cook is a great item in the comforts of the voyage. But as we had the best of dragomen, namely Said Ali Bey, and the best of cooks, Hadji Ibrahim, the voyage was both pleasant and prosperous.” Four years later Robert Elwes met Mr. Hadij Ibrahim again - he was the chef de cuisine at the 3rd station on the journey overland between Suez & Cairo.
