Egypt's Sinai Peninsular

Egypt's Sinai Peninsular: Watercolour SunsetsEgypt Sunset, Desert Stars

Sandwiched between the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Aqaba, the Sinai Peninsular covers an area of almost 24,000 square miles. It encompasses barren desert, classic dunes, vast ranges of crystalline mountains and the clear turquoise waters of the Red Sea.

As remote desert regions go, the Sinai is one of the most beautiful and intriguing. The high granite mountains are dissected by deep ravines and wadis. It is here that the Bedouin of the Sinai still lead a remote, nomadic existence. † Opportunities for trekking, desert adventures and unique interaction with the local people, make the Sinai a place for a truly memorable adventure and an incredible educational experience. †

It is possible to link the Sinai with mainland Egypt to visit the classic sites at Cairo, the Nile Valley and Luxor. † Ten days is the minimum for a trip of this nature, but such a journey would really only leave you scratching at the surface. To do justice to the Sinai, you need a full week on the peninsular so that you can get to the very heart of this extraordinary place. The Sinai offers true desert adventure in every sense of the word, so be prepared for some basic conditions. However, the experience of sleeping out under the stars, spectacular sunsets and the ambience of camp life will more than compensate for the lack of creature comforts. †

We can also arrange specialist geography, geology, history and religious tours to this inspiring land.
