Day 1: Cairo – Bahariya Oasis (350 Km)

  • Pick up from you location in Cairo (airport/ station / hotel).
  • Drive to Bahariya Oasis 350 kilometers (219 miles) ahead. Midway in the journey at 155 kilometers (97 miles) is a rest stop with a gas station and a cafeteria Twenty-two kilometers (14 miles) from the beginning of the road, the railway from Helwan joins the road and follows it all the way to reach Managim.(First Village of Bahariya oasis).Beyond Managim, the main road continues to Bawiti. At 316 kilometers (197 miles) the terrain changes once again as small conical hills begin to emerge
  • Arrival in Bawiti, switch to 4WD.
  • We leave Bahariya behind in our way to a different world of Black and White. We approach Sahara Suda, the Black Desert, a favorite safari destination. The ground to the right and left of the road is covered with black stones. We climb a 15 meter Sand Dune by 4WD and stop to take pictures of these mixtures of colors. Then we see Al Marsous volcanic Hill.
  • 37 km we reach Al Hyaz small village that during the Roman era this area was very prosperous. Many of the current families were originally from Libya. We take our picnic lunch in a shaded place; also we will have the chance to get refreshment by swimming in one of the cold springs nearby.
  • We drive to the most famous of the formations is the Crystal Mountain, actually a large rock made entirely of quartz. It sits right beside the main road.
  • Meet the camels near Bir Rigwa, and start our tour on back of camels towards the Mushrooms formations.  Bit by bit the yellow desert sands east of the road start to become pierced by chalky rock formations.
  • The 4x4 will advance further on the desert to prepare the camping place, mounting tents, cooking food.
  • Our camel ride takes around 03 hours to reach the camping point.
  • BBQ Dinner. Overnight in tent.

Day 2 and Day 3: White desert- Magic Spring- New White desert.

  • We reach the Magic Spring, 07 meters above flat desert surface full of pure water.
  • Then we proceed to Ain Khudra, a garden of green palm trees in the heart of the desert.
  • Drive to ‘’ Camps Area’’, rock formations shaped on tents style carved by wind.
  • Bit by bit the yellow desert sands east of the road start to become pierced by chalky rock formations. You get further into the 300-sq-km White Desert Protectorate, you’ll notice that the surreal shapes start to take on familiar forms: chickens, ostriches, camels, hawks and other uncanny shapes abound.
