In the Morning, around 7:00 am, our representative will come to take you from your hotel in Cairo in a modern A.C vehicle to start your adventure through starting a driving trip that is going to take about 4 hours until you reach Bahariya Oasis. Don’t worry about the duration of the tour as we will stop in the middle of the way to get refreshed at a rest house and also to have something to eat & drink. We will proceed towards the oasis and upon your arrival, which is going to be around 11:30 am, we will change the modern private A.C vehicle with a 4x 4 safari car.
You’ll meet your professional local Bedouin guide whom you will join to visit the unparallel attractions of the desert including the Sand Dunes area, where you are going to take some beautiful pictures above a dune whose height is more than 50 meters. After that, we will continue our way until we reach the territory of the black desert. There, you’ll see an outstanding sandy mountain covered with black stones & minerals that look like iron & coal, which is called "El Marsos Mountain".
The area that you are visiting now has been created by the actions of the volcanoes that used to happen during the pre-historic period and it is going to be an amazing chance for you to take pictures in such an area.
In the afternoon, we’ll head to "El Haiz village" to have some rest in addition to having your delicious lunch meal and that is not all as you’ll find there an interesting market where you’ll be able to buy some Bedouin clothes, accessories, handmade souvenirs, and a lot of other wonderful items. In the afternoon, around 2:30 pm, you’ll head with your Bedouin guide to an area called “Agabat”, which contains some amazing sculptures and limestone and it used to be called in the ancient time with “Obstacles” as in order to cross it by a camel, you needed at least three days.
Then, you’ll head to the White Desert before the sunset, where you’ll feel that you are walking upon the surface of the moon as the white sand of the desert looks like snow and the rocks represent human heads, shapes of Mushroom, forms of plants, and even chicken, and in fact all of these shapes were created because of the harsh wind in that area. While being there, you’ll capture beautiful photos to remind you of such an experience and you’ll also watch the sunset.
Surprisingly, in this area, the color of the surface is changeable, as during the day time, it is orange and it turns into ink and then to purple during the time of the moonlight.
After taking some pictures, we will drive back to the black desert for camping and we will stop on our way at the place of the Crystal Mountain to look at a true miracle as the stones of the mountains shine as if they are pieces of glass which will make you want to have pictures to and that is not all as you’ll find some tracks of the desert wolves on the sand.
After reaching the Black Desert, you’ll enjoy the best Barbeque dinner of your life prepared by the Bedouins. You’ll join them in a circle, watching the beautiful scenery of the sky full of stars. You’ll overnight in a tent.
In the early morning before the sunrise, you are going to wander around the area, witnessing the breathtaking sunrise view between the mountains as if it is a volcano that is about to erupt. You will have your breakfast and then get ready to collect all of your camping items to leave the area. You will be transferred to a 4x4 around 9:00 am to head to the highest mountain in the black desert and there you’ll enjoy the view and you take some pictures there. After that, you’ll head to one of the most amazing warm springs in Bahariya Oasis, which is called "Ein Mady", which is mainly used in the irrigation system and that is not all as you’ll witness some spaces planted with palm trees there in addition to hearing some stories from your guide about the way in which they follow to plant such marvelous palm trees. That is why; Bahariya oasis is one of the most important centers for producing the dates all over the world.
Finally, you’ll head to the city, where you are going to change the 4x4 with a modern A.C vehicle and then you’ll be transferred back to your hotel to end your safari trip in Cairo.
