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 1 Arrive 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.
  • On the final day, pack up the camels after the 2nd dive and start the journey home. By camel to the road, and jeep to Dahab.
Day 7 Relax in Dahab
Day 8 Transfer to Sharm el Sheikh airport (SSH) and depart. You'll be planning your next trip to Dahab within hours!
