Siwa and the White Desert Tour

The trip consists of spending two nights in Siwa to visit all the sites located in and around this famous oasis. Afterwards, we spend one night in a camp in the white Desert and one night in the Bahariya Oasis.

The Egyptian oases, including Bahariya, Farafra, Dakhla, Kharga, and Siwa have their own taste and magic. The Bedouins living in these tribal communities are different from any other population in Egypt. They have their own habits, customs, and beliefs that are totally matchless and unique.
Siwa, the most distant and mysterious oasis among all the oases in the Western Desert, is one of the most interesting destinations in Egypt hosting many fabulous attractions and a community that still holds to its old tribal culture, customs, and beliefs.
