Camel (or Hiking) safari

Two days Camel Safaris

We offer a variety of two day camel safaris so that we can provide our customers the chance of a lifetime to ride a camel into the desert and sleep under the stars just like the Bedouins have done for thousands of years. Along the way, we'll pass by various forms of terrain including desert landscapes, mountains, sand dunes and oases.

* Canyons by Camel

The White Canyon

This site is located 700 m above sea level along the way to St. Catherine, known for it's white soft sandstone terrain. When you descend, you will find Ain Khudra Oasis where you'll observe Bedouin families living in traditional tents, following the natural water sources for their livestock.

Ain Khundra

A palm tree and desert vegetation paradise located 53 km North of Dahab. At this site you will observe the desert at it's most natural state when Mother Nature has been so kind as to bring some rain. There is natural spring which irrigates the landscape.

Rock of Inscriptions

Rocks of Inscriptions can be found all over Sinai depicting scenes of early life, when Sinai was still Savanna with lions and ostriches to hunt - the only relics of these times is the Acacia tree. Nabateans, Romans and Byzanthines left messages on the rocks along the Pilgrim's Road (Darb el Hajj) for other pilgrims to read. One of the most amazing places where inscriptions can be found is this rock here between St. Catherine and Dahab/Nweba rod.

The Closed Canyon

This canyon is best for the limber rock climbing enthusiast. (Larger folks or claustophobics would definitely be uncomfortable due to the tight spaces one must climb through). If you are up for a bit of climbing in addition to the camel ride, this is an optimal choice.

The program:

We start at 08:00 and drive for an hour before meeting up with the camels and riding for half an hour to the beginning of the White Canyon. There we will leave the camels and walk through the canyon with a guide to end up in Ain Khudra Oasis for lunch. You will ride again for 45 minutes to see the Rocks of Inscriptions before heading back to Ain Khudra Oasis for dinner and to spend the night under the stars (Bedouin style). The next day you will ride the camels through Wadi Rum for an hour to see the Closed Canyon. This is where the fitness test begins! You will slither through tight rock formations and crevices. We will go through the Closed Canyon with a guide for 30 minutes until we reach the end. Then another 30 minutes walking back to the camels and one more hour to see Naqp el Hamidat. We return by camel to Wadi Ghazala where we take the car back to Dahab.

Including: experienced guide, food, Bedouin accommodation and transportation

Costs: 115 euro per person by camel

Melehez Oasis tour

The search for water occupies the traditional nomadic Bedouin family. At this site, your guide will show you the cracks in the rock formations where either sweet or salty water flow naturally. Take your camera as the rocks have a very colorful pinkish hue to them.

* Please note for larger folks and or people with claustophobia, we can modify the tour to skip the Closed Canyon by having lunch in front of it and not entering the maze.

The program:

We start at 08:00 and drive for one hour to Wadi Gazala. From here we start riding the camel for one hour to visit the Salama Canyon. We walk through the canyon for half an hour and have lunch. We then ride the camel for one and a half hour to Melehez Hill. Here we will climb down for about half an hour into Melehez Oasis, to see the four springs that come from the same rock - some of them have fresh and some have salty water. We climb out of the canyon and ride the camel for Melehez Oasis. We ride the camel for one hour to Wadi el Disco to have dinner and spend the night here. The next day after breakfast we ride the camel for half an hour to Naqb el Hamidat, and walk through this camel path for fifteen minutes. We then ride the camel for another ten minutes to the Closed Canyon to visit the canyon for one hour. We ride the camel for one hour to Ain Khudra oasis where we have lunch. We will then walk through the White Canyon and ride the camel for half an hour to take the car back to Dahab. Here we arrive around 5 in the afternoon.
