There are only a few places in the world where a first-time visitor is confronted with a mountainous desert landscape as spectacular as that of the Sinai. On our Bedouin Safari, you will actually trek into the heart of the desert on camel, by foot and by jeep. You will visit some of the awesome Sinai canyons and spend time with a Bedouin tribe, learning about their techniques of survival in this harsh desert environment. We will also take you to some of the ancient biblical sites in the Sinai, such as St. Catherine Monastery (reached by jeep), and to explore the Mount Sinai area by foot. To top it all sleeping under the stars in the desert is a most breathtaking and soul recharging .You will be accompanied by selected group of Bedouin Specialist Guides and their essential desert skills – only those who live here know how to find the shade, firewood and water needed to survive. You will learn how the hardy shrubs that survive here can be utilised for food or medicine, bake flat bread on open fires and spend some time with the Bedouin families located at the eco-lodge, who continue to live a traditional life-style.
Once in the solitude of the deep desert the silence becomes intense. Sitting amongst the changing colours of the rocks of the desert as the sun sets, without a sound to be heard, it is easy to see why so many people have chosen the desert as a place of retreat.
