Day 2: Sugar Loaf � Mud Lions 
Pick up the military escort in the morning and head to last check point, then leave the paved road towards Sugar Loaf, a spectacular rock formation. Continue towards Yardages formation site or Mud lions which is an ancient lake site, after it was dry, the fauna left fossilized in the playa sediment had formed in the shape of sea lions in the direction of the wind, giving a spectacular landscape view

Day 3: Central Gilf Kebir 
Driving west towards the Gilf Kebir, crossing Wadi Mashi dunes and continue towards the Gap that splits the Gilf Kebir for two parts, this is a remarkable area with beautiful landscape scenery where the Sand Sea dunes are breaking and surmounting the Gilf Kebir plateau. Will have our camp near the complex dunes of wadi assib

Day 4: Aqaba pass � Wadi Sura
From Central Gilf we will descend the Aqaba Pass towards the plain to the west, driving along the western cliffs of the Gilf that rises about 300 m. First we visit Swimmers Cave discovered by Almasy in 1933. Then visit the Mestqawe-Foggini cave discovered in2002 with the richest assembly of rock art drawings and engravings in the whole of Egypt, Some travellers consider this cave to be the �Sistine Chapel �(Vatican � Rome) of the African rock art. Later camp in spectacular area where the rocks were shaped like domes

Day 5: Wadi Abd Al Malik 
We leave Wadi Sura camp and drive along the western side of the Gilf towards Wadi abd al Malik, on the way we stop at Kebir a Crater; a very large crater that was observed by satellite images and thought maybe connected to the formation of the Silica Glass field! Wadi abd al malik is the valley with acacia trees that Almasy spotted from the aero plane and believed it to be one of three valleys of the lost oasis of zerzura. Camp in wadi abd al malik.

Day 6: Silica Glass Area 
Drive through Wadi el Gubba Leaving the Gilf behind we will enter the area of southern Sand Sea where the giant dunes block any passage to east or west. We will drive in between the dunes to a suitable camping area. Spend the afternoon exploring the Silica Glass and the stone tools.
