Schedule

We’re often asked about the itinerary for a Camel Diving Safari. It’s all flexible, but this will give you a good idea about how you spend your time:

Day 1Arrive Sharm el Sheikh airport (SSH), meet our driver and transfer to Dahab, check in and relax
Day 2
  • 2 dives Dahab
  • Safari briefing 5pm
Day 3
  • 6-7am: The best time to leave on safari is early! By jeep for ½ hr, then meet your camels
  • Load tanks and equipment onto the camels, a quick lesson in camel driving and we’re off! 1 hour trek along a beautiful stretch of the Aqaba coastline. Relax & enjoy the ride.
  • Unpack, breakfast and time for the first dive.
  • All diving on safari is from shore. Kit up, buddy check, descend and enjoy!
  • Relax with Bedouin tea after your dive
  • Lunch and time to explore
  • 2nd dive
  • Relax, snorkel, walk to Laguna for an afternoon swim
  • Around sunset, dry off and gather round the fire for dinner and a perfect night under the stars.
Days 4-6
  • Wake with the sun and an early morning swim! Walk a few meters and you're in the cool blue waters of the Red Sea. Finish your swim and breakfast arrives, with fresh baked Bedouin bread.
  • The days carry on like this… 2 dives a day, optional 3rd/night dives, eating fresh food prepared by our Bedouin hosts and drinking as much of the sweet Bedouin tea as you can manage!
  • Option to trek to Bir El Ogda Oasis. The Bir El Ogda wells are known for the best drinking water in South Sinai. It's a nice walk up the wadi, and a great way to explore the mountains.

    “Camel Safari to Ras Abu Galum” Decided to head out to the Sinai after a week in Cairo and everyone recommending Dahab to me as the place to go. Found Desert Divers after a brief search and was impressed by what they had to offer. The e-mail correspondence was prompt and extremely clear. The whole trip to Ras Abu Galum was top notch. Eat, dive, nap, eat, dive, relax, eat and sleep under the stars only to wake up and do it all again the next day. Plus the staff were extremely friendly and hospitable, always stopping for a quick chat. I hope to return soon.
