You never learn something until you do it yourself. Instead of watching how the Bedouins get their water out of the well, cure or make their famous bread, why not help them yourself?
What to Expect
You will be picked up from your hotel in Hurghada and taken to the Beach Buggy Station. Meet your representative and listen to a short briefing of the day’s program and enjoy the cool drinks served to you throughout the day. Drive the beach buggy for 1 hour deep into the desert until you reach the Bedouin village. It is recommended to bring a scarf with you to cover your face as the air will hit strongly.
As soon as you reach the Bedouin village you will be welcomed with open arms and served a welcome drink. Try tea with herbs, which the Bedouins are famous for and watch them make it. Smoke a water pipe while chatting with the friendly Bedouins about their way of life. Observe how they extract the remedies and natural cures out of the planted herbs. If you want to, you can give them a helping hand. Proceed to a different spot in the area where you will see a Bedouin woman making bread. Watch how she bakes and put the bread dough into the “oven”. You will have the chance to taste it when it's done. Stop by and watch some Bedouins trying to get water out of a deep well with traditional ways without using technology. Drink the pure water.
Outside the tent, enjoy a camel ride with an Arab camel covered in colored Bedouin decorations. Take your time watching and admiring the tribe. Witness a magnificent sunset and climb a mountain for a better view of the horizon.
After a sunset walk back to the Bedouin tent, enjoy a gourmet Bedouin BBQ prepared outside the tent. Enjoy eating Bedouin food under the stars and hear Bedouin songs. After the BBQ, go back to the bus and start heading back to your hotel.
