Spent 2 days in Cairo and then headed out for 4 days, 3 nights doing the Western Desert. Bahariya, Farafra, Dakhla, Al Kharga to Luxor. (then onto Aswam-Abu Simbel and back on felucca, train to Cairo. Any questions just ask. Started tour Sept 19, 2009 (total 15 day tour)
Absolutely loved the white desert, just like you see in google images. Amazing, camped on the sand under the stars - WOW!! Only a small desert fox (keep everything in bags or go missing). warm nights, no spray-no bites.) we went in sleeping bags (in case bugs/windy too helps keep sand out)but some guys slept on top. tour provided mats (they said not to use our inflatable as can tear with sharp rocks) Hot, long driving days so good to chill, talk or nap. The Oasis are um interesting. cool for sure. Cement tanks with water pumped in. wear t-shirt/cover up for gals. iron will stain cloths red. refreshing. we all loved the WD!! bring biodegradable TP!!!! we hated to hit city again away from stars and so relaxed.[/img]
