Full description
You'll begin by traveling from your hotel by jeep to the tour starting point. Once there, you will venture for 26 kilometers into the picturesque desert of Hurghada. You'll drive through the sunset observation area until you reach a Bedouin camp, and once at your Bedouin tent you will begin a camel riding session for 15 minutes. Following that, receive a cool and refreshing welcome drink as well as a herbal Bedouin tea. You will then travel with your guide to experience traditional Bedouin life, after which you will enjoy a Bedouin buffet dinner with romantic candles. After dinner, relish the tranquility of the desert whilst watching millions of stars in a calm atmosphere away from the noise of the city. Your guide will then take you on a trip to the edge of the universe to enjoy the vision of the distant milky way represented through the stars. You will have then the opportunity to see some of the planets, and will also learn exciting information about space and star science. Once you are done admiring the stars, you will be driven back to your hotel by Jeep.

    We really enjoyed this trip. We were a family of four including two girls aged 8 and 11. The transfer from Makadi bay (small extra transfer charge) was quite long and a bit uncomfortable but all squashed in the back of the jeep and chatting with other guests that we picked up on the way was an adventure. There were lots of different elements of the trip but it never felt rushed. The camel ride was short, which was fine by us. The jeep ride in the desert was fun. The sunset was great, the food was delicious and the star gazing brilliant. Mahmood was an entertaining and informative guide.

    Glad to have made this excursion at the end of the stay in Egypt. Soothing, relaxing with a touch of madness on wild jeep driving. Very impressive and moving. A guide who shares his passion for astronomy and history will delight the most interested... Thank you for everything. Glad to have made this excursion at the end of our stay in Egypt.

    Lovely afternoon which began with a camel ride in the desert. It was nice but could have been skipped as the ride is very brief. Mohammed Mumu and his drivers brought us to the a bedouin camp where we had the chance to see how bread is traditionnally made by the bedouins and an excellent tea was served. Later on we climbed a mountain located next to the camp to watch the beautiful sunset - it was marvellous ! After sunset, we could observe the stars and the moon with a powerful telescope, during which Mumu gave us very detailled informations. Overall a great experience with lots of fun - a special shoutout to Eslam, the camera guy, who shot really nice pictures of us and the group - you absolutely have to take them (extra cost) !
