Western Desert Off-Road

We organize these jeep safaris from October to April, but keep in mind that in winter the nights can be cold in the Western Desert. We travel by air-conditioned microbus and off-road by 4×4. In the desert we spend the night in Bedouin camps or we set up a overnight camp under the clear sky with a million of bright stars above us. Daily three meals will be freshly prepared.
