White Desert Protectorate



Sleeping under the stars (or rather under millions of stars!), In absolute silence, in the heart of a seemingly infinite space provides an unreal sensation. Walking in the sand or stones, crossing a dry oasis, drinking tea to a lost spring in the middle of nowhere, discovering fossils of shells is somewhere else apart from this planet. And for those who like the adventurous atmosphere, all this can be done by 4x4 Jeep vehicle.


The White Desert has a truly magical effect as it’s one of the more recently declared protectorates of Egypt and is located totally within the Farafra area. Considered one of the most important tourist destinations for Egypt Desert Safari adventure.

A gloomy and, at the same time, extremely attractive landscape seems supernatural. Tourists come to admire it from all over the world. The Bahariya Oasis and another prominent natural attraction of Egypt, the White Desert, are located near the Black Desert. The uninhabited and absolutely lifeless desert attracts not only curious tourists but also professional photographers. At certain times of the day, you can create unique images, since the play of shadows forms an even more amazing scenario.

The name of this Desert comes from the layer of chalk and limestone that partially covers the landscape. This is the vestige of a time when this area, today arid, was located under the sea, there are tens of millions of years. You can always find remains of sea urchins, shells, even coral reefs near the Libyan desert.
