Cairo – Bahariya – Hidden Oases – Siwa – Great Sand Sea – Ain Della – White Desert – Bahariya – Cairo
From Cairo you drive the 225 miles to the Bahariya Oasis.
You cross the plateau which connects Bahariya with the Siwa Oasis. Here lie the hidden oases of Sutra, Noamis and Bahrein, which were inhabited in Roman times. Today only the graves remind us of the people who lived here.
From each oasis there streams the blue eye of a lake.
The Siwa Oasis with its famous Oracle Temple, where Alexander the Great asked God whether he was the son of Amon, is in itself worth a trip.
From the Fatnas Peninsula your gaze wanders over the salt lake to the dunes of the Great Sand Sea.
These welcome you with open arms and after crossing the first dunes you soon feel at home in the sand landscape and enjoy the varying dune forms of this endless sea.
Wind carved sculptures in the White Desert fascinate your eyes and elevate your fantasies.
Before the return trip to Cairo you enjoy the cool shadow in the Bahariya Oasis.
