Travelling through the Desert of Sinai is a spiritual and refreshing endeavor; its clean air enables one to recharge the soul. Base camps are set up on location and an approximate 50 km of land will be covered, with two days spent residing with the local Bedouin tribe.

Each day consists of walking with the sun, enjoying an energy boosting breakfast and continuing the trek into areas of vastness and sand dunes, canyons, plateaus. Avoiding the hottest part of the day there will be a block of time each day for you to relax and absorb the ambiance of the environment or use for group discussions.

A further approx 3 hours trekking takes us to the locations chosen for our sleepover camps. This consists of Bedouin Tents made of woven camel or goat hair, rugs and mattresses. The heart of the camp is the fire and is a symbol of hospitality. Dinner is served around the fire, and evenings are enjoyed with tales from the elder Bedouins, music and singing.

Sleeping under the stars, with its breathtaking display of planets and constellations, recharges the soul and is a great way to end the day in the wilderness of Sinai.

This tour is more than an average desert experience and unique in the world of travelling.
