Full description

Start with pickup from your hotel or another selected location in Cairo or Giza between 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM. Board a comfortable air-conditioned car and enjoy a comfortable 100-minute ride to the Wadi El Rayan Desert. Upon arrival, enjoy fantastic views of the Wadi El Rayan waterfalls in the heart of the desert. Admire the powerful cascades of water which provide a stark contrast to the surrounding arid landscape.

If you are lucky, catch glimpses of desert wildlife in the area such as the slender-horned gazelle. Next, make a stop for photos of the beautiful Mudawara Mountains. Then, get ready to enjoy the desert adventure. Board the 4X4 car for some dune bashing and experience the excitement as the car glides through yellow, soft sand.

After riding over the dunes, stop to enjoy some sandboarding. Strap yourself to the sandboard and glide down the sparkling, yellow sand at a fast pace. Next, mount a camel and feel like a Bedouin explorer as you ride through the beautiful desert terrain. After the camel ride, stop at a Bedouin desert camp and enjoy an elaborate and delicious BBQ lunch.

Once you are done with your lunch, you will be dropped back to your hotel or selected location in Cairo or Giza.

The booking was incredible. Alaa was super friendly and very communicative. Our guide, Aswany was awesome! He was funny and informative. We had two drivers, one for the van and one for the jeep. Hossam “Vin Diesel” and Ali “Baba” were fantastic as well. The views were incredible, the food was delicious and overall it was an unforgettable experience. We highly recommend!

This was easily one of the coolest experiences of my life. We booked this except ting it to be a group activity - but it was completely private and our driver, Fares, was also our tour guide so he was with us all day long. He made sure we had everything we needed at all times and completely catered the experience to what we wanted. The whole thing, from communicating to the activities, to the timing, was all excellent and he did an amazing job! TLDR - book this tour and if your get Fares as your guide, tell him he’s amazing and Leah and Matt say hi!
