Tour Details

Here you will change vehicle and jump on a 4X4 jeep for a thrilling ride along rugged roads to the incredible White Desert. This unique landscape is set in a depression, and its intriguing aspect is the result of the chalk rock formations caused by sandstorms and the chalk deposits that settle on the ground. You will also visit the Black desert where the sand is caked with a gold and black crust. Nestled between the two deserts, the start of Crystal Mountain offers yet more wondrous sights and is best known for its quartz crystals. Arriving at camp you will find spacious well-ventilated dome tents equipped with mattresses, blankets, sleeping bags and bed sheets. Enjoy a delicious dinner before retiring for a night beneath the stars.

You will have the services of an expert Egyptologist guide to answer all of your questions and provide insights in to the area’s intriguing history. After lunch you will visit the ruins of the temple of Alexander the Great and the tombs of the nobles at the Valley of the Golden Mummies. You will then join a camel caravan for a 1-hour trip through the desert landscape. Depending on time, there may also be a chance to enjoy a bathe in a thermal spring before your transfer back to Cairo for your hotel drop-off or at Cairo airport for your onward travels.
