8. From Hurghada: Star-Gazing Safari by Jeep with Dinner
Venture far out into the Egyptian desert on a guided day trip. Take a 4x4 across the mountain terrain and ride camels to reach a Bedouin camp. Tuck into a barbecue buffet dinner as the sun sets, then observe the clear night sky with a telescope and an astronomer.
Get picked up from your hotel in Hurghada and drive through stunning desert landscapes in a 4x4 convoy. Cross over the mountainous landscape until you've left the city far behind.
Arrive at your first stop and hop into your new desert transportation for the jeep safari. Next climbing onto a camel. Spend 10 minutes riding over the desert sands and taking photos on the dunes.
Be welcomed into the Bedouin camp with herbal tea and meet the locals. Learn how the Bedouins bake bread and craft handmade carpets, bracelets, and necklaces, then take the chance to try making your own.
Relax as your guide cooks you a barbecue dinner and the sun begins to set over the desert. Enjoy an open buffet dinner with green salad, tomatoes, cheese, rice, grilled chicken, and beef before enjoying tasty desserts.
As the flames of the fire flicker, look up to realize that the stars have come out to shine. Out in the desert, they're bright enough to make out all the constellations, and if you're lucky, you might spot a shooting star.
Follow your professional astronomer guide to the observation area, where a MAEDA brand telescope has been set up for you. Look into the lens to see twinkling stars and distant planets on a journey to the edge of the universe.
