Itinerary

Day 1Departure from Cairo and Journey to White Desert

At 6:00 am, we will pick you up from your hotel in Giza or Cairo to begin our journey to Bahariya Oasis, located approximately 350 km southwest of Cairo. The drive will take about 4 hours, with stops along the way for restroom breaks and coffee.

Upon arrival at 10:00 am, you will embark on a thrilling adventure in a 4×4 Jeep to explore the stunning Black Desert. At noon, a delicious lunch will be served in El Haize Oasis.

After lunch, we will continue our journey to the Valley of Agabat, arriving at 3:00 pm. Nestled deep within the White Desert, the Valley of Agabat boasts otherworldly beauty. Millions of years ago, this area was submerged under the sea, resulting in the unique limestone, chalk, and sand formations that we see today.

At 4:30 pm, we will explore the White Desert National Park, a renowned desert destination in Egypt known for its breathtaking landscapes. As the sun begins to set at 5:30 pm, we will set up tents and enjoy the magnificent view.

As the sky transitions from pink to fiery orange, the rock formations around us will fade into the background, leaving us in peaceful silence. Gathered around a small fire, we will savor a simple yet delicious meal of chicken, rice, and vegetables, prepared by our Bedouin staff. This experience will leave you feeling truly grateful for the beauty of the desert and the warmth of good company. After dinner, we will settle in for a night of desert camping under the stars.

Day 2 Bahariya Oasis - Crystal Mountain- Bir Sigam -

Witness the breathtaking sunrise at 6:00 AM. Indulge in a delicious breakfast in the desert at 7:00 AM before embarking on a journey to Bahariya Oasis.

At 9:00 AM, on your way back, you will have the opportunity to visit Crystal Mountain, also known as Gebel al-Izzaz. This stunning crystal hill, often referred to as the Jewel of the desert, is composed of quartzite crystals that glisten in the sunlight. Discovered by accident several decades ago, this natural wonder is truly a sight to behold.

By 11:00 AM, we will make our way to Bahariya Oasis. Take a moment to unwind and relax at Bir Sigam, a rejuvenating hot spring located 7 km east of Bahariya on the Cairo road. Known for its optimal temperature, Bir Sigam is considered one of the best hot springs in the area During the summer months.

 we will also make a stop at Bir Madi, a refreshing cold spring. Immerse yourself in the cool waters and enjoy the tranquil surroundings of this oasis.

We are pleased to offer two additional options for you to further explore the beauty and history of the oasis.

Option 1:
For those interested in delving deeper into the rich history of Bahariya Oasis, we highly recommend embarking on an extra trip to visit the Museum of the Golden Mummies, Bawiti Tombs, and Alexander the Great Temple. During this excursion, you will have the opportunity to explore the tombs of Bannentiu and Djed-Ankh-Amun-Iuf (Zed-Amun) at Qasr Selim, dating back to the 26th Dynasty. In addition, you will visit Bawiti, the capital of Bahariya Oasis, the Museum of the Golden Mummies, and the Temple of Ain El Muftella. A delicious lunch will be provided in Bahariya Oasis.

The cost for this option is $35 per person.

Option 2:
Alternatively, you can opt for a 3-hour tour of Bahariya Oasis. This tour will take you through the palm and olive fields, as well as Gebel Maghrafa, where the largest Diansour (Stormers Tidal Giant) was discovered in 1914. You will also have the opportunity to visit Lake al-Marun, the largest salt lake in Bahariya Oasis, and enjoy a breathtaking sunset from the summit of the English Mountain (Gebel Al Ingleez), offering a stunning view of the northern part of the oasis.

The cost for this option is $35 per person.

We hope these additional options enhance your experience in Bahariya Oasis and allow you to discover more of its wonders.

Drive to the Fayoum Oasis where you will arrive at the campsite for a delightful BBQ dinner and captivating show. Spend the night in Fayoum, surrounded by the beauty of the desert landscape.

Day 3Wadi al Htan - The Magic lake and wadi el Rayan - back to Cairo

Depart from the camp site after breakfast for an unforgettable journey to Wadi Al-Hitan National Park. This site was designated as a Protected Area and Natural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005. Wadi Al-Hitan, also known as the Valley of the Whales, is located 35 kilometers west of Wadi El-Ryan in the Western Desert of Egypt.

This area is a treasure trove for scientists, as it is home to fossils dating back 45 million years. The site is often referred to as an open-air museum, where visitors can marvel at petrified whale skeletons, shark teeth, shells, and ancient roots of Mangroves preserved in soft rocks. Everywhere you turn, you will encounter petrified seashells and corals, providing a glimpse into the ancient marine life that once thrived in this area.

During your visit, be sure to explore the Fossil & Climate Change Museum, which showcases a variety of whale fossils and skeletons. Some of these fossils are displayed outdoors, while others are housed indoors in glass boxes. The museum also features fossilized mangroves and ancient seashells, offering a fascinating look into the prehistoric world of Wadi Al-Hitan.

Depart from the campsite after breakfast for an unforgettable journey to Wadi El Hitan National Park.

Embark on a scenic drive to The Magic Lake and Gebel Al-Mudawara, where you will have the opportunity to explore the stunning landscapes of Wadi El Rayan, Qarun Lake, and more before returning to Cairo.

The Magic Lake is a breathtaking body of water nestled in Wadi El Rayan in Fayoum, Egypt. Its name derives from the mesmerizing way it changes colors throughout the day, creating a truly magical sight against the backdrop of the surrounding desert. Visitors can partake in activities such as hiking, sandboarding, and even swimming in the lake, which is believed to possess healing minerals for those suffering from rheumatism.

Next, you will have the chance to experience the desert thrillingly by embarking on a Jeep 4×4 adventure to explore The Magic Lake and enjoy sandboarding. Additionally, you will visit Gebel Al Mudawara, a picturesque area located seven kilometers south of the waterfall, offering stunning views of the lakeshore and three mountains that make it a popular picnic spot.

Wadi El Rayan, a depression 42 meters below sea level covering 673 km, will also be on the itinerary. This area became a water reservoir in 1966 when it was connected to Qarun Lake via an underground pipe, adding to the natural beauty and allure of the region.

Drive back to Cairo, reflecting on the magical experiences and breathtaking landscapes you encountered throughout our three-day desert safari trip.

Exceptional hospitality with comfort Such a great experience. Started with an on time arrival at our location on the Corniche followed by an exceptionally well planned day seeing the highlights in Alexandria. Really knowledgeable about history and answered all our questions at the sites we visited and even sights we didn’t. He took us to places we would have never found in our own and shared very specific details from various scholars and archaeologists. Our Seafood lunch was very tasty and a nice time to relax. Comfortable vehicle and he always found good parking. I will be recommending Tarek to all my friends!

Fascinating land of the pharoahs From the moment we touched down at Alexandria Airport, our guide Tarek was there to receive us and took us throughout our 3 day Alexandria/Cairo tour. What else can I say about Egypt that everyone else has said except that it was the best trip ever to just be immersed in the so rich culture. Everything was so rich and deep. The people especially, the smells, sounds, the mesmerizing sites. All so stimulating. I can never top this trip if it hadn’t been for our guide Tarek and Cairo Private Tours. Everything was so moving for me. Thank u Tarek for showing us your fascinating country.

Amazing! We were in Egypt for 2 weeks and had an amazing trip! The private trip was planned perfectly and we had a wonderful time! All I did was tell them what all we wanted to do and they took care of the rest! Itinerary planning, bookings, cars, guides.. everything! Our guides Khalefa in Cairo and surrounding areas, Nagah in Luxor and Aladdin in Aswan and Abu Simbel were exceptional! We felt treated like family! What a memorable time!! 100% recommend!!
