Jeep Safaris

Two days Jeep Safaris

* Canyons by Jeep

The Coloured canyon

The Coloured canyon has its name from the layers of bright, multicoloured stones across the steep, narrow walls. The patterns are made from a mixture of sandstone and limestone, with coloures from pink to brown and from yellow to green. The canyon is experienced by walking through it from either direction.

Closed Canyon

This excursion 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.

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.

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.

Double Canyon (Small Arada Canyon)

The area gets its name from the Arada plant, a Bedouin medicinal herb thought to cure athsma, which in the Sinai, appears only here. Upon closer inspection, you'll find that the plant's leaves change color during the summer to a shade of blue.

The program:

We start at 08:00 and drive for 2,5 hours to the Coloured Canyon. Then we drive through Wadi Ghazala to stop and look at the Mushroom Rock and to visit the Closed Canyon. Then we drive to Ain Khudra Oasis where we will spend the night under the stars. The next day we visit the White Canyon and drive to see the Double Canyon (Arada Canyon) before we return to Dahab around 5 in the afternoon.

Dragon Head Mountain

The mountain derives its name from its shape, as it looks like the head of a dragon. If you look closely you can even see the teeth of the dragon. This mountain is also known as ‘ the mountain with the hole’. The hole in the mountain is considered to be the eye of the dragon.

El Hedoda

El Hedoda is Sinai's highest (800 m above sea level) and most expansive areas of sand dune terrain. The name itself comes from the Bedouin word meaning "to tear down". As it is one of the naturally highly windy locations in Sinai, once there you will see for yourselves how the sand comes rolling down when the wind hits.

The program:

We start at 08:00 and visit the Salama Canyon, Melehez Oasis, the Closed Canyon and Ain Khudra Oasis, where we will spend the night under the stars. The next day we will see the White Canyon and drive to Safra Sand Dune, Hedoda Sand Dune and Gebel Makhroum (Mountain with a Hole) before returning to Dahab around 5 in the afternoon.

* Serabit el Khadeem tour

Wadi Feiran

Wadi Feiran - the Sinai's largest wadi (valley) and one of it's most archeologically important stretches of terrain. It was here, according to locals, scholars, and legend, that Moses (pbuh) struck a rock with his staff, bringing forth a spring so his people could drink. Feiran is also the Site of Rafadim, the fabled oasis where the Hebrews camped and battled the Amelecites. For the pilgrims and believers who have been coming to this wadi for centuries, a journey through Feiran is to pass through an entire chapter of the Old Testament itself, Exodus 17.

El Magara

The El Maghara assessment area lies in the northern part of west Sinai Peninsula and includes much of Gebel Maghara and the adjoining plains east to Risan Aneiza. El Maghara, North Sinai region is one of the landmarks for biodiversity in Sinai and Egypt.

Serabit el Khadim

Serabit el-Khadem) is a locality in the south-west Sinai Peninsula where turquoise was mined extensively in antiquity, mainly by the ancient Egyptians. Archaeological excavation, initially by Sir Flinders Petrie, revealed the ancient mining camps and a long-lived Temple of Hathor, the Egyptian goddess who was favoured as a protector in desert regions. Fewer than thirty incised graffiti in a "Proto-Sinaitic script" found in the temple have made Serabit el-Khadim famous among students of the history of the alphabet. The mines were worked by prisoners of war from southwest Asia who presumably spoke a Northwest Semitic language, such as the that was ancestral to and Hebrew.

Forest of Pillars

The name Forest of Pillars comes from the tubular columns of black lava that are driven up like many stalagmites from the surrounding rock, made up from reddish-yellow sandstones. This place is one of the most intriguing geological oddities in the Sinai.

The program:

We start at 08:00 and drive for three hours to Wadi Feiran. This is the oldest oasis the Sinai, where Moses struck his staff on the ground to provide water for the Israelites. From here we will drive to El Magara, where the ancient Egyptians used to cut turquoise. Here we will climb and look at the caves with hieroglyphic inscriptions. We will have lunch here. We will then continue to Serabit el Khadim where we will have dinner and spend the night under the stars or in one of the Bedouin camps. The next day we will climb for about two hours to see the Hathor Temple. We will then climb down to have lunch at one of the Bedouin house and drive for about one hour to Gebl el Fuga (Forest of Pillars) where we will see the pillar-shaped vulcanic rocks.
