Overnight Desert Camping Safari (Private)

Private Tour:  USD 370
Duration: 2 Days(need to book 5 days in advance)
Location: Cairo
Available From:  Nov 4, 2013 to Nov 4, 2016


Egypt’s Black and White Deserts are part of the country’s Western Desert and together they offer a fascinating glimpse into desert life as well as some of the most mesmerizing landscape you can hope to see. This overnight tour takes you to the heart of the desert on a camping adventure at the edge of the El Bahariya Oasis.
Upon arrival in Cairo, depart for the El Bahariya Oasis. This unique landscape is set in a depression, and its intriguing aspect is the result of the chalk rock formations caused by sandstorms and the chalk deposits that settle on the ground. You will also visit the Black Desert where the sand is caked with a gold and black crust. Nestled between the White and Black Deserts is the start of Crystal Mountain, which offers yet more wondrous sights and is best known for its quartz crystals.
Arriving at camp you will find spacious well-ventilated dome tents equipped with mattresses, blankets, sleeping bags and bed sheets. Enjoy a delicious dinner before retiring for a night beneath the stars. 
After a delightful breakfast in the White Desert you will return to El Bahariya Oasis for a tour of the city. It has been home to Bedouin tribes for centuries. You will have the services of an expert Egyptologist guide to answer all of your questions and provide insights in to the area’s intriguing history. After lunch you will visit the ruins of the temple of Alexander the Great and the tombs of the nobles at the Valley of the Golden Mummies. You will then join a camel caravan for a 1-hour trip through the desert landscape
Depending on the time, there may also be a chance to enjoy a bathe in a thermal spring before your transfer back to Cairo for your hotel drop-off or at Cairo airport for your onward travels.
