The White Desert is rightfully Egypt's most famous desert destination - and with good reason. The abundance of unearthly and beautiful wind-carved rock formations in the form of giant mushrooms or pebbles is unparalleled in any desert in the world. Farafra is closer to this 300km protectorate than Bahariya but offers a more limited choice of tours and safaris. Nevertheless, it is the perfect starting point for a nocturnal journey into the infinite white.
Just north of the White Desert, the Black Desert is closer to Bahariya than Farafra, about 50 km south of Bawiti. The mountains have been eroded and the desert is covered in a black layer of powder and rock that gave the desert its name. At the end of the Black Desert are black volcanic mountains that erupted long ago with a black volcanic material called basalt, forming black rocks. Climb English Hill, the highest point in the Black Desert, and enjoy breathtaking views of exotic lands.

We will pick you up from your hotel in Giza or Cairo at 06:00 and drive to Bahariya Oasis, about 350 km west of Cairo.

Soon we will climb Panorama Mountain which overlooks the black desert and enjoys the glorious stillness of the desert. Around 1:00 p.m. we will have lunch at the oasis of El Haize. Then drive through the Agabat Valley into the ancient desert for beautiful photos of the limestone formations. The Valley of Agabat was under the sea millions of years ago. Over time, unique amazing rock formations of limestone, chalk, and sand developed. In this valley, 7 skeletons of dinosaurs were found. Around 5:00 p.m. we reach the white desert of Egypt.

It is a national park that is considered the most famous nature reserve in the desert. Around 6:00 p.m., while our driver sets up the tents for our overnight stay, we enjoy the sunset. 18:30, when the sky turns pink, a mystical atmosphere arises, and there is silence everywhere. As you sit by the small fire and enjoy the simple meal of chicken, rice, and vegetables, you'll feel like nothing has ever tasted so good. The Bedouins will prepare a delicious dinner for us and arrange desert camping.

It is made of quartzite crystals and looks impressive in the sun's rays. A few decades ago, this natural feature was found by accident. 11:00 We drive to Bahariya Oasis and swim in a natural sulfur spring known for curing rheumatic and skin diseases.
