deserts & oases

The first thing that you have to remember is that you really are talking about huge stretches of land here. That’s a staggering total of over 270,000 square miles or over 700,000
square kilometres. 

There are six large natural oases with contrasts in features and scenery : Fayoum, Bahariya, Siwa, Farafra, Dakhla and Kharga. The size of an oasis might come as a surprise to you. Of course, there are smaller ones where you might wish to camp under the stars, but the larger oases have a range of hotels to give you modern comfort after a busy day. 

One particular attraction is the huge Gilf Kebir mountain plateau, between there and the Siwa Oasis, you cancross a huge sand dune ocean. It is up to you how long you wish to spend in the desert and the welcome oases

Many operators offer a brief taster, from 1 to 3 days, but people often speak of “deep desert”, which mean long time to explore the desert. You can book a longer desert trip of about 4-10 days. For the real enthusiasts, a deep desert trip can be up to three weeks long. Any way exploring the desert is unforgettable adventure you’ll never regret just make sure you‘ll be accompanied by experienced guide, plenty of water and food and good vehicles.
