Full description
Experience the race over the steep dunes and take in the vibe of either sunrise or sunset in the desert. Your tour starts at 7:00 AM with pickup from your selected hotel or hostel in Cairo or Giza. Then enjoy a comfortable ride in a modern, private car with air conditioning through the mountains and dunes to the staging area. You'll arrive at the staging area around 10:30 AM to start the real adventure. Climb into your Jeep Wrangler and head to Wadi Al-Hitan to get your adrenaline flowing. Wadi Al-Hitan is the most important site in the world showing the evolution of whales. Many whale fossils have been discovered here, along with other early animals, such as sharks, crocodiles, sawfish, and turtles. At 2:00 PM, you'll enjoy an afternoon snack. By 5:00 PM you'll arrive at your camping site for the night in the middle of the magnificent desert. After setting up your camp, it's time to savour a delicious Bedouin dinner while listening to traditional music and watching the beautiful stars. The next morning after a special breakfast, you'll pack up and head out for day 2 of your adventure. Go off-road to see mummified crocodiles that have been in the desert for thousands of years. Then, take the chance to swim at the Magic Lake where you can also enjoy a drink while taking in the beautiful desert views. Your Jeep adventure ends around 3:00 PM and you'll head back to your hotel in Cairo or Giza arriving about 7:00 PM.
