5 Day Desert Safari
5 days Desert Safari Excursion in detail:
Day 1: Cairo
After breakfast at the hotel, we will start our 5 day Desert Safari, then we drive to the Giza Plateau, where one of the Seven wonders of the World (the Kheops pyramid) stands, and we will also greet the Sphinx. After the pyramids we eat lunch (Egyptian food), in a very fine restaurant on the Nile, before going to the Egyptian Museum. The museum has the oldest heirloom in the world, 122,000 treasures. Tutankhamun‘s burial equipment as well as his famous gold mask.
In the evening we drive to Alexandria, Egypt’s second largest city, where we stay overnight.
Day 2: Alexandria
After breakfast we will see the Qaitbay Citadel, which is a defensive fortress from the 15th. Century. Located on the Mediterranean coast. It is built at the exact same place where the famous lighthouse once stood, and with the ruins of the lighthouse. It was created in 1477 ad by Sultan al-Ashraf Sayf Al-Din Qa’it Bay. After lunch we visit the library, which is a worthy successor, after the old legendary library, and houses countless books and copies, museums, scientific facilities and a reading area with room for 2,000 people. In addition, visiting Pompeii’s Pillar, a triumphant Roman pillar, is one of the largest monolithic pillars ever to be erected. Before we travel back to Cairo, we visit the Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa, a large underground cemetery.
We stay in Alexandria
5 Day Desert Safari
Day 4: Al Bahariya & the White desert
In the morning we visit the Valley of the Golden mummies -a Greek. Roman burial ground. Then we drive to the Qarat Qasr Salem Hill, and visit the two ornate tombs of The 26th Dynasty. We are now driving to the black desert, where we will visit the Crystal Mountain, which is not really a mountain, but probably an old rocky cave formed by crystals.
Then we run To the white desertwhere we see a landscape formed by a plateau which was razed to the ground, and has left standing hard rock figures, while the softer parts were eroded away by wind and sand. In some parts, the chalk surface still appears as fine wind-ruffled waves on the water.
We sleep under the Stars in the white Desert -an experience that you never forget. Discover when the sky turns pink and then changes to orange and the rock formations disappear-then there is quiet all the way around.
Day 5: Cairo
Today we will join our 5 day Desert Safari. And then we drive back to Cairo via the Al Bahariya Oasis.
