SETH Tour

8 Days Fully escorted Private Tour – Pyramids, Oasis and Desert Safari

In a slow rhythm the caravan crosses the untouched desert landscape. A journey where time and hurry are left behind.

In Cairo you visit the Pyramids and the Sphinx with an Egyptologist. It continues to amaze us how the ancient Egyptians were able to built these timeless masterpieces. Your guide also takes you to the Egyptian Museum to show you the treasures of the Pharaohs including the golden mask of Tutanchamon.

A drive through the endless desert will take you to the lovely green oasis of Bahariya, a place where time seems to stand still. Donkeys and goats walk freely through the streets and men smoke a waterpipe in the local coffee house or take a nap on the couch in front of their house. Life in the oasis seems to be without the stress of time. It's hospitality that is valued highly and sharing stories while drinking a tea together. The Bedouin women still dress themselves in the traditional way.

Accompanied by experienced desertguides, the Bedouins, you drive from the oasis to a point where the camels are waiting and the safari starts. Riding on your own camel, the caravan treks through the beautiful desert landscape. One or more jeeps with supplies drive to the resting spots. Those travellers who prefer to go by jeep instead of riding a camel can join them.

You visit the Black Desert with volcanic mountains, Agabat, a small valley with incredible rock formations and the Crystal Desert, rock formations that consist entirely out of sparkling quartz crystals. In the White Desert between wind eroded limestone formations, camp is set up for the night. The Bedouins prepare fresh meals on an open fire and as talented musicians they to sing their songs around the fire.
Under a blanket of twinkling stars, you doze off to sleep, dreaming of a vast desert, gazelles and camels.

After the safari, before driving back to Cairo, you visit the Golden Mummies in Bahariya and the temple of Alexander the Great.
