Description

Discover the Sinai desert

A trip to the Sinai just isn’t complete without a desert safari.

But what if you only have 1 day? Is a ‘big bus trip’ you’re only option? Of course not!

We’ll get you off the beaten track with a local Bedouin guide who will be happy to introduce you to the landscape and people of the Sinai.

This is a daytrip by jeep, exploring further on foot:

  • Nawamis
  • Jebel Makhroum
  • Bir Safra
  • Wadi Safra dune
  • Bedouin lunch in Wadi Arada
  • Adventure hike through the Double Canyon
  • Stunning sandstone mountains
  • Option to add Mt Sinai and St Catherine monastery
  • Warm welcome by the people of the desert
  • Small group, with local Bedouin guide

Minimum 2 people to guarantee booking. Single travelers welcome. We will add you to a group, or suggest alternative date/safari.

    Diving, Hiking, and a whole lot more! Last week, we visited Dahab and it was one of the highlights of our Egyptian Vacation. We were in touch with Tanis for several months determining what would suit our schedule best - she more than took care of us. We decided on snorkeling one day and Hiking another day. We were not disappointed. The logistics for both trips were taken care of, we were picked up at our hotel, the wet suits and equipment were fitted, briefing on hiking was great, we had a wonderful day snorkeling and the hiking was the greatest. We even were able to take on an added couple mile hike on our way out from our scheduled tour - what a blast. The Largest Sand Dunes in the Sinai were a trip not to miss - we hope it is included in future hikes! I would like to add, Tanis and her team were absolutely professional, passionate, and truly wonderful people to “adventure” with. We could not have asked for a better time. Reasonable prices, great team members, and fabulous location, what more could you ask for - other than more and more trips with them!
