Day 7: Luxor Sightseeing
We rise early to cross the Nile, where our donkeys are waiting to take us into the Valley of the Kings. After matching up the donkeys to our riders we head off, just as the sun begins to rise in the eastern skies. It’s a great experience and is sure to be one of the highlights of your visit to Egypt. We return to the east bank, where we meet our Bedouin crew, and after loading our gear we set off in 4WD vehicles to Baris to spend our first night camping under the stars.
Day 8: Kharga & Dakhla
After breakfast, drive to Al Kharqa the largest of the oasis towns and a sizeable producer not only of dates but also cereals and vegetables. Just outside town are the remains of the Temple of Hibis, built by Darius I during the Roman period. There is time to visit the temple, as well as the Christian burial ground, dating to the end of the 7th century. We drive on, to Dakhala,where we spend the night at an Oasis style hut with reed huts, communal showers and basic facilities.
Day 9: Dakhla Oasis
After breakfast, head off to the fabulous medieval mud-brick town of Al Qasr, exploring the timeless streets, seeing the old school, an ancient olive press and the granary. We also visit the excellent little Ethnological Museum, a locally sponsored project which we support through our visits. There is also a hot spring nearby which makes a great rest stop either on the way out or when we return. We return for lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing while we wait for the heat of the day to pass. In the late afternoon we set off on camels, riding through a desolate windswept landscape to the base of a Great escarpment,where we spend the night under the stars (about 20 km). Dinner and overnight.
Day 10: Farafra & White Desert
North of Dakhla is Farafra Oasis where we have time to visit the Museumand enjoy a swim in another of the many natural sulphur springs. A little further on we enter the White Desert, a spectacular region of wind-eroded limestone formations. The continual erosion has left a layer of fine white dust on the desert sands, hence the name ‘white desert’. We enjoy a sunset walk in this surreal landscape and spend the night camping under the stars. Note it can be very cold in the winter months (Oct-Mar) so make sure you are well rugged up if you are travelling at this time.
Day 11: Back to Cairo
Bahariya is the most northerly of the Western Desert oasis towns and we stop here for a break on our way back to Cairo, which we expect to reach in the late afternoon. On arrival we farewell our Bedouin friends and after time to freshen up we can enjoy a final night out together.
