Heading Deeper into the Desert

... We were taken to a single mother's home where she lives with her extended family. The woman we were speaking with was fairly liberal, compared to her two sisters. She was willing to answer questions about women in an Islamic society and how she has seen things change. She talked about her divorce and how that takes place in Egypt. It was a really fascinating evening and I'm so glad everything worked put the way that it ...

The middle of no where

... of seeing and doing things that I now realise I've come to think of as normal. Sleeping out among the stars. Desert landscape. Camping. Lack of sound. They're all common in Western Australia. For people from other places, however, doing those things is a real novelty. Samy offered us another desert sleep out tonight which I turned down but Pam agreed to. I've figured I've been there done that with desert camping. I haven't had a shower in two days and would ...

Camping in the White Desert

After arriving at Giza, we were driven to the Bahariya Oasis, which is about 4-5 hours outside Cairo. The "desert road" was amazing. Miles and miles of straight road passing numerous oil rigs and desert land scape.

We transferred to a 4WD stocked with camping supplies and lots of blankets and got on the road for about another 2 hour drive to the White Desert. The highlights along the way included a nice ...

Heading into the desert

... He drove us through some tiny little back streets, lots of motor bikes, kids, animals. Arrived at Beshmo Lodge, our stop for the night. The had lunch ready for us, potatoes and rice, chicken for me. We then were shown our room, very basic but at least nice and clean, the bed was hard but comfortable. We just dropped our bags and left again, driving out through local streets, then through palm groves laden with dates. Off road driving to reach a ...

Sand, Sand Everywhere!

... The bizarre white rocks protrude up through the sand in all kinds of shapes and sizes and you have to use your imagination to find the shapes that some of these rocks are named after. Examples are Mushroom, Sphinx, Camel and Chicken.

The sunset in the desert was amazing and as soon as the sun disappeared, the temperature plummeted. During the evening and the morning a number of Desert Foxes came looking for scraps of ...

    Like a village of small houses, a pool, restaurang and Peter's bar in a beduin house. The bed were a bit hard, but otherwise a lovely stay on our tour between the oases.

    Oasis within an Oasis, Little paradise in the desert

    Peter who manages this hotel with his wife, their staff of local bedouins and the locals from the village of Bawati do a fantastic job at respecting the environment, protecting the environment and at the same time giving a great service. He is very welcoming, helpful and informative about the surroundings. The rooms are immaculately clean, neat with lovely cooling colours and comfortable. The roof top sitting area in the desert is a great place to relax. They offer messages and the Oasis sulfar water which looks disgusting is warm and great for the skin. He can organise your jeep safari into the desert with a local bedouin in a 4x4. There is a cozy lounge bar for drinks in the evening.
    We had breakfast and dinner there and I guess my only negative part of the stay was the food was a little dissappointing for the price we paid. We opted out of lunch on our departure and stopped at a well known BBQ place which was local, yummy with lots of food!
    What I enjoyed about the International Hot Spring Hotel is the excellent honest service and his emphasis being green in every way possible. It is very easy to walk into Bawati.
    If you arrive by bus from Cairo, Peter will send someone to pick you up and bring you to the hotel.
    I have sent several freinds from Canada, Australia, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Mexico to experience Peter's hospitality and all have returned loving it very much. Nobody was disappointed in their stay. All thought my detailed description of the this little Oasis was precise!
    It is a great place to unwind after a day in the desert or after having spent the night in the desert...
    I appreciate Peter's honesty, helpfulness, directness, frankness and welcome. If you want to do something different for a weekend from Cairo, this is a must.
    I researched most of the hotels in the area and this by far was one of the top, reasonablly priced.
    Highly recommended
