Classic Package
Our classical tour starts from Cairo with an early morning departure heading to Bahariya. After arriving in the oasis and getting settled in our hotel, a local visit of the most interesting culture and historic sites is planned. On the next morning, the expedition in the desert begins. Throughout, you will be surrounded by splendid and unique nature! To end this unforgettable day, you will be camping in the White Desert, under a roof of stars!


Day 1- Cairo – Bahariya Oasis (350 Km)

• Pick up from you location in Cairo (airport/ station / hotel).
• Driver 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, we check in hotel and relax. Then we start tour of main attractions of the Oasis.

• First we go the see Museum of the Golden mummies where 10 of roman golden mummies in view selected from 10.000 intact roman burial chambers discovered in the 1990s.
• Not far from the Museum, we head to slightly south of the spring of the same name are four 26th-dynasty chapels that together form the Temple of Ain al-Muftella.
• Climb down to see the colored Tomb of Noble Bannitu with its fascinating decoration of Universal Day.
• Then we visit small, two-chamber temple is the only place in Egypt where Alexander the Great's effigy and cartouche have been found.
• We take the spring of cold water is used by both tourists and locals as a swimming hole. It is cool and refreshing on hot desert days.
• Climbing the Black Mountain known as English Mountain. As on summit are the ruins of a World War I lookout post, which was manned by Captain Williams, after whom the mountain is sometimes called.
• Visit Gebel el Dist Locals call it Magic Mountain because of the way the light plays on the texture and material of the mountain during the different hours of the day.
• Back to hotel. Dinner and overnight.

Day 2- Oasis – Black Desert- Crystal Mountain- White Desert (140 Km with stops)
• Breakfast in hotel.
• 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 Haiz 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.

• 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.
Two flat-topped mountains known as the Twin Peaks, a key navigation point for travelers. A favorite destination: the view from the top of the surrounding symmetrical hills, all shaped like giant anthills, is spectacular. Kids will delight in coming up with shape associations, and photographers will fill up their memory cards trying to capture the brilliant hues of the setting sun reflecting off the inselbergs’ shiny surfaces. Waking up amongst them is one of the highlights of any camping trip into the desert
• BBQ Dinner. Overnight in tent.
 
Day 3- White Desert - Bahariya Oasis - Cairo

• Breakfast in White desert.
• Back to Bahariya oasis and switch to minibus. Travel to your address in Cairo. End of services.

    Information about Bahariya Oasis tours and White desert
    The Snow - White Desert

    The richness and variety of Egyptian landscape is endless. At least if you ever decide to visit the White Desert, that's the message you'll get. It is a vast stretch of land in the Western Desert that borders Bahariya Oasis to the north and Al-Farafra to the south.
    The snow-white desert is actually made of chalk that has been exposed for years to what geologists call "differential weathering," the erosion of soft particles that results in eerie protrusions of hard rock. This explains the very beautiful forms that now fill the White Desert including shapes like domes, minarets, castles, towers and so forth.
    The destination has proved a great attraction to all travelers who camp in the few oases, watch the fauna and flora and enjoy the mild winter weather.
    Shallow water levels allow for modest vegetation and wildlife. One example is the Cairo University Oasis which comprises only one palm and a few green trees, used by academics and students to rest and eat. The desert could be a great safari area.

    Safety in the white desert

    The white desert is a magnificent place found only in Egypt. The terrains are flat and walk able or drivable but due to soft sand you can only enter it in a four wheel drive car. It can be seen from the main road but only truly experienced in a four wheel drive vehicle.
    It is totally safe to stay overnight. The only animal you may see (if you are lucky) is the small desert fox that will come late at night and eat the leftovers of your dinner.
    There are no creepy crawlies and no one bothers you.
    If you spend the night there, you can:
    Sleep in a tent, or
    Sleep in a mat outside under the stars
    It is true camping. There are no toilets or washing facilities. You find your own little spot for a toilet and water for washing is supplied by your guide.
    The desert is completely clean and no guide leaves anything behind. Everything – even toilet paper- is taken out in plastic bags to be disposed of.
    Your guide knows the best places to camp and he has only your comfort in mind
    THIS LEAVES THE SITE CLEAN FOR ALL THE OTHER GUESTS
