Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos


In Hurghada many hotels or travellagencies organise trips to the desert. You will go in a car (or with a large number of cars) or on a four wheeled motorbike to a beduine camp (for the tourists) in the desert. At the beduine camp you will get some tea as you arrive. If you want you can have a ride on a camel and then there will be a tour around the camp. In the evening you can watch the sunset from one of the hills around. Before returning to Hurghada there will probably be a barbaque.

I brought a lot of water when I went on one of these tours. The other three persons in the car did not bring anything to drink (I could not understand how anyone could go out in the desert without bringing anything to drink). Luckely there is a small supermarket in the beduine camp selling water and soft drinks.
