Description and Services


The desert experience is an introspective journey of discovery. The solitude and impressive beauty of the sabara provides space for the spirit.

It is released in this wondrous and natural setting and can reach new boundaries not possible in our contemporary urban existence.

It is no surprise that the greatest prophets in the course of human history were desert travelers.

Our different expeditions visit one or more of the few oases that exist in the desert of Egypt.

But we also reach uninhabited oases, incredible desert lakes, isolated monasteries where men are still seeking their truths, grand canyons, awe-inspiring rock and natural formations and the most awesome experience of all the great sand sea.

Nothing however, compares to the delightful and unexplored surprises which we are constantly coming upon during our desert treks.
