Itinerary

The day begins early at 6:00 am as we gather at our meeting point for a 5-hour journey. Upon arrival, we settle into our lodge. A simple desert lunch awaits, setting the tone for our adventure.

Day 1

Welcome to Wahat

Following the meal, we kick off our exploration in the Black Desert, named for the striking layer of black powder and rocks formed over years of erosion. There will also be an exciting session of sandboarding to add a touch of thrill to our day. We then venture into the Black Mountain, enjoying a panoramic view of the surrounding area.

As the day winds down, we gather in the lodge for a special treat—traditional cooked underground mandy chicken. Later, we come together around the fire, sharing stories and experiences from our day before we rest for the night

Day 2

Wahat adventure continues

Today kicks off early with a simple breakfast and checking out from the lodge, gearing up for a day of exploration. Our first stop is the famous Djara Cave, where we take it easy and enjoy some quality time before a relaxed picnic-style lunch.

After exploring the cave, we head back to the White Desert, making a cool stop at the Crystal Mountain. Continuing our desert journey, we go deeper until we reach the Agabat Desert.

As the day winds down, we set up camp in the tranquil White Desert, surrounded by its beauty. Dinner is simple but satisfying, cooked up in the heart of the desert with a cozy campfire. We wrap up the night with some starry-eyed stargazing, adding a magical touch to our desert adventure.

Day 3

Saying Goodbye to the desert

 

After waking up in the middle of the desert and savoring our breakfast, we set out for one last desert exploration. Before wrapping up our adventure and making our way back to Cairo, we make a final stop at the lodge for one last lunch.

We move back at around 3 pm and arrive at Cairo at 8 pm.

Non-Egyptians will incur an additional fee of $75 to cover essential permits, accommodation, and ticket price differences. Make sure you have this amount in cash to be paid to your trip chaperone at the start of the journey.

Adventure Leader

The Adventure Leader's primary role is to ensure your journey flows seamlessly. As your main point of contact throughout the trip, they're dedicated to enhancing your experience. Whether it's offering recommendations on activities or attractions, or facilitating interactions among travelers, they ensure everyone feels connected, although often connections form naturally.

Traveling Solo

Our groups are filled with solo travelers and like-minded individuals who share a passion for adventure and connecting with others. You'll feel right at home exploring with us.

We use private buses, either a Hiace for smaller groups of 10 or a Coaster for larger groups of 19.

In Egypt, the power supply is Type C and F, with a standard voltage of 220V and a frequency of 50Hz. No electricity will be available at the campsite, so make sure to bring your power banks.
