On the fifth day, you'll begin your White Desert Tour from Cairo, which also includes a visit to the Bahariya Oasis. The excursion can start anywhere, just like with the majority of our Cairo Day Tours. From Cairo to Bahariya Oasis, it will take you four hours in an air-conditioned vehicle.
You will have a visit to the Golden Mummies Museum. Together with the remains of an Alexander the Great Temple, the mummies were found in enormous Greco-Roman graveyards. You will also witness the tombs of the local rulers or nobility from the 26th dynasty. Finally, you'll enjoy seeing the Temple of Muftella, which was built in reverence of the deity Bis.
We will transport you to a restaurant designed to seem like an oasis later on, where you can eat a fantastic lunch of Egyptian food. This should be a fascinating experience for you.
After that, we'll head to the White Desert for a unique White Desert Safari. On the way to Cairo, to the south of the oasis, we will pass through the Valley of El Haize, a green town in the heart of the desert that comes before the black desert. If we have time, we may stop to visit the water spring there.
Visit Crystal Mountain to see historic quartz crystal formations and the Valley of Agabat to enjoy the thrill of sandboarding down the sizable sand dunes as well as the breathtaking formations and petrified wood. We will enjoy camping in the White Desert while your local guides prepare your lunch, where there is a great chance to see an amazing sunset. Take in the beautiful stars as you rest in the camp.
Spend the evening gazing at the magnificent stars far from the smoke of the larger towns. The next morning, you will awaken to the most romantic sight: the sun rising in the White desert.
