First we visited the Black desert, then Crystal Mountain and finally off road to the absolute highlight: the White desert. Bizarre formations in an alien landscape! At the end of the first day we pitched our tents there and a delicious meal was prepared by guide Islam & his 2 colleagues. Finally, reminisce and relax by the campfire. On day 2 we got to see all the highlights of the Bahariya oasis and drove a bit tired but satisfied back to Cairo. An unforgettable experience richer ......!

Our guides Eslam and Mohammad were great took us off-roading to all different places in the desert, they were very knowledgeable and fun your guides would defiantly recommend you can also see thousands of stars when you sleep in the desert so that alone is worth it When travelling from Cairo to meet your guides defiantly bring some headphones though as it’s a very long drive

My dream came true. It was so wonderful and unique experience. The picturesque landscape drove me crazy. Our guides Islam and Muhammad showed us a lot of magnificent views, cooked really tasty food, song national music. They were so nice and friendly. The car was comfy and authentic. In the end of the trip Islam gave me a box of fresh sweet dates as a gift. It was such a funny and amazing adventure. I'll never forget it.
