Sinai desert Discovery – 2-day jeep and camel safaris

Day 1:
We will depart from Dahab at 8.00 am. We will go to the north of Dahab driving towards Nuweiba. From there we go off road into the heart of the desert. We will then start a 1.5 hour trek to the most stunning canyon in the Sinai Peninsula, the Colored Canyon. Afterward we drive through barren desert valleys to reach the relieving oasis of Ein Khudra. On the way we stop by a rock which has an unusual formation that looks like a mushroom so aptly named the Mushroom Rock.
We will have lunch under the palm trees in the oasis crowned by the famous Bedouin tea.
Then for one more adventure we will climb through the White Canyon created from white sand ground and lime stone walls. The hike takes over one hour.
In the end of the canyon we will meet our jeep and we shall head into the desert to set up in the place of our first camp at Wadi Hajaj. Dinner will be served around the camp fire and we will sleep under the stars in the open air.

Day 2:

We will start the day early in the morning just after sunrise. After breakfast we will be met by the Bedouin tribe of the area and our equipment will be loaded onto camels. The Bedouin Sheik of the area and his family are located in Nawamis village. The neighboring tombs of Nawamis are reputed to go back some 5335 years and are named from the Bedouins word for flies. These circular tombs were used by the semi-nomadic people from northern Egypt, who worked in the mines of the Pharaohs. After having look at them we will continue into the colorful limestone area of Mt. Matamir. An area of mountains soaring to 1000m high, sand dunes and narrow canyons. The view from the summit is spectacular, so it is recommended but optional to climb the mountain while lunch is being prepared.
After lunch the trek continues to take us back to the road where we will find our transportation back to Dahab. You will be back in the civilized world again by approximately 6.00 pm.
