You may watch my 16-pics SLIDE-Show from my WebShot page Bur Safajah-Luxor convoy

Bur Safajah (Safaga) is a small town on the coast of the Red Sea about 60 kilometers from Hurghada. I would not pay attention to this place, if the existing order of sending tourists bus caravans from Hurghada to Luxor.

When our bus has arrived to Safaga, I have been amazed by how many buses were waiting for the departure to Luxor. It seemed to me, that there were more than a hundred buses. Therefore the name of the city of Safaga now will always associate for me with a chaos of buses and the armed escort.

    Hi Sergey - security for tourist of Egypt is of high priority. But the last terror act was only a few weeks ago. Nevertheless it is a beautiful country. Good info

    Nice pictures from your trip between Hurghada and Luxor. I travelled with the caravan in 2000 and remember there were many buses, but probably less than when you went.

    Sergei, great tips, photos, slides, and videos! But I'm a little disappointed that you rode through the desert on a bus instead of a camel (haha). Best from New Jersey, Bill

    Great page Sergey, those mountains sound fantastic. From South America, where we are now, Egypt seems a completely different world.

    Nice page on this "bus hub"! Do not think that mountains in the desert are lifeless. I know from the Sahara, that they are full of life that you cannot spot from a bus. hikinbg is the only way to see that!
