Description of the Siwa Oasis and the Great Sand Sea Tour
Our 6-day Siwa Oasis and the Great Sand Sea tour starts and ends in Bahariya Oasis (a pick up/drop off service from/to anywhere in Egypt will be arranged if you wish).
Siwa Oasis offers all you could ask for in the way of desert beauty spots: thick palm groves clustered around freshwater springs and salt lakes; rugged massifs and enormous dunes. Equally impressive are the ruins of Shali, a labyrinthine mud-built town that once protected the Siwans from desert raiders. Scattered around the oasis are ruined temples that attest to Siwa’s fame and prosperity during Greco-Roman times.
This tour crosses into zones administered by the Egyptian Army and includes some serious off-roading deep into the desert; please make sure to read the further information section at the bottom of this page.
