Full description

Start with pickup from your hotel or another selected location in Cairo or Giza between 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM. Board a comfortable air-conditioned car and enjoy a comfortable 100-minute ride to the Wadi El Rayan Desert. Upon arrival, enjoy fantastic views of the Wadi El Rayan waterfalls in the heart of the desert. Admire the powerful cascades of water which provide a stark contrast to the surrounding arid landscape.

If you are lucky, catch glimpses of desert wildlife in the area such as the slender-horned gazelle. Next, make a stop for photos of the beautiful Mudawara Mountains. Then, get ready to enjoy the desert adventure. Board the 4X4 car for some dune bashing and experience the excitement as the car glides through yellow, soft sand.

After riding over the dunes, stop to enjoy some sandboarding. Strap yourself to the sandboard and glide down the sparkling, yellow sand at a fast pace. Next, mount a camel and feel like a Bedouin explorer as you ride through the beautiful desert terrain. After the camel ride, stop at a Bedouin desert camp and enjoy an elaborate and delicious BBQ lunch.

Once you are done with your lunch, you will be dropped back to your hotel or selected location in Cairo or Giza.

This was by far the best desert safari experience we’ve had to date!!! A special thank you to our tour guide Ahmed Sayed Afifi who was very professional, accommodating, and well organised throughout the trip. All activities were planned and carried out in a timely fashion. A special thanks also to our 4x4 driver, Ahmed, for a wonderful adventure he gave us in the dune bashing activity as well as his host and accommodation. We loved every bit of the experience including also the camel riding and sand surfing. A final thank you to our transport driver Salah who collected us from our hotel and dropped us back.

Being 2 young girls in a foreign country, my sister and I were pretty scared to try anything or wander alone. But I cannot express enough how safe and amazing this tour was!!! Our guide’s name was Ramy Afifi and he was phenomenal. Always making sure we were comfortable, relaxed, and having fun! We tried so many new things and it was a jam packed full adventure. His team made our experience perfect! Very funny and kind. Would highly recommend this tour with Ramy!!
