The scenery on this hike is breathtaking and indescribably beautiful. You will be hiking through the desert like mountains of Sinai and seeing a completely different side of Egypt that you have never seen before.
The desert is usually hot during the day but it’s still pleasant and sometimes cold at night.
The Bedouins usually sleep under the stars. They call it the million-star hotel. We will be camping in the wilderness – by camping we also mean that our water resource is minimal so expect no showers, and nature calls are responded in nature – no toilets. We’ll be providing tents for sleeping which can accommodate 2 hikers per tent and provide insulation from the cold and a barrier against rain, which is possible at any time, and also against mosquitos. A warm sleeping bag would be suitable for this trip with comfort temperature of 5 degrees. We also recommend using sleeping bag liner or just wearing more warm layers during sleeping for people who'd still feel cold. Sleeping bags can be big, bulky and weighty, so get the smallest, lightest model you can. Remember, the weather in Sinai at night is colder than what most people would expect, especially if they are not familiar with it.
You will be treated to 3 extremely delicious meals on a daily basis You will have 3 daily extremely delicious meals throughout the trip where you can help in their preparation if you want to. Breakfast is usually eggs, cheese, beans, honey and jam, lunch is on the light side having pasta and salad, while dinner you will enjoy the amazing cuisine of bedouins which is vegetables, meat or chicken slow cooked on charcoal or on the fire with some rice and salads.
