Half day Jeep Safari to
* Salama Canyon and Melehez Oasis
This canyon is known as the small coloured canyon. The canyon is close to the St Catherine road. It is made of soft sandstone and has naturally coloured rocks. The walk through the canyon takes half an hour and is easier than the real Coloured Canyon, with less climbing and wider passageways.
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.
We start at 09:00 and drive for one hour to Salama Canyon. We walk through the canyon for half an hour. From here we drive 15 minutes to Melehez Hill. From here we climb down for about half an hour to the oasis, where we watch the four springs which come from one single rock - some are fresh and some our salt water springs. We then climb out of the canyon and drive back to Dahab in about one and a half hour. We arrive in Dahab around 3 pm.
