Sinai Camel drive: 7 nights 8 days

Type of safari- Camel Trek , Destination - Egypt

Tour Summary

In this safari you will actually trek into the heart of the desert on camel and by foot. 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.


Day 1

Arrival at Sharm el-Sheikh (or Taba) airport, where you will be picked up and transferred to Dahab situated approximately 100km north of Sharm. In Dahab, you will check into Coral Coast Hotel, on the northern side of Dahab's seafront. Coral Coast Hotel is designed with a Bedouin ambience, offering clean rooms with en suite bathrooms, balconies and fantastic sea-views. Coral Coast Hotel is Bedouin owned and employs a nearly all Bedouin and Egyptian staff.   
   
Days 2-4
On your second day, you will be introduced to the dive centre and dive equipment, weights and buoyancy checks will be sorted out before setting off on your first dive of the week. Whilst based in Dahab, you will be driven to the various dive sites by jeep or pick-up truck, owned and driven by local Bedouins.

Dahab offers a wide range of shore dives, from shallow gentle dives, such as Eel Gardens, to deep technical dives in the Blue Hole (see photo). On the programme are dive sites such as the Canyon, Bells to the Blue Hole, the Islands, Coral Garden, Eel Gardens, the Lighthouse and, dependent on weather conditions, potentially a boat dive to Napoleon Reef.    

Days 5-7
On day 5 you will leave all unnecessary personal belongings behind in your rooms in Coral Coast Hotel and set of early on your camel dive safari adventure. First you will be driven to the Blue Hole area, where your camels and Bedouin hosts are awaiting your arrival. All equipment, food and plenty of bottled water are loaded onto the camels and the trek on camel back or by foot to Ras Abu Galum can start.

The next three days are spent diving the pristine, beautiful reefs of Ras Abu Galum, guided by an experienced dive master from Poseidon Divers. Ras Abu Galum is considered to be a floristic frontier between a tropical climate and Mediterranean conditions. It offers a high biodiversity of coral reef fish and associated flora and fauna. Although a Managed Resource Protected Area, Ras Abu Galum still supports an active Bedouin subsistence fishery, supplying amongst others Dahab's local restaurants with fish and seafood.   

During your desert dwelling days, all the meals are prepared by the Bedouins and served in a traditional style of eating together and helping yourself. The evenings provide ample opportunity to relax and are probably the most amazing part of this desert adventure. Sunsets over the Sinai Mountains, sitting around the campfire and sleeping under the stars with its breathtaking displays of planets, constellations and shooting stars, will most certainly be a soul recharging experience.

Towards the end of day 7, you will make your way back to the Blue Hole area, where you will be picked up and taken back to your hotel in Dahab.

Day 8
This last day can be spent in whatever fashion you like. Whether it is just relaxing in one of Dahab's many Bedouin style restaurants, shopping in its bazaar or walking along the beach, one thing is for sure, Dahab leaves an everlasting impression on most people.

Transfer and return to Sharm El-Sheikh airport.
