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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
