Seeing the Sights of Bahariya

... and the ground kept crumbling underneath us. We decided not to venture further up the mountain. We did have a great view of the surrounding area though. After another stop at a spring, we headed over to English Mountain to wait for sunset. There are the ruins of an old British fort there from WWI that made for some pretty nice pictures. It's crazy how chilly it gets here when the sun disappears. I might have to break out my fleece jacket ...

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 ...

... of Bahariya, everyone getting ready for El Eid festival. Drove out to the Temple of Alexander the Great. Mike had to do some swift talking as he had a local ticket 1LE not a tourist ticket, but eventually the police guy let us in. Huge covered temple out in the middle of the desert. Some pottery bits and pieces here as well as a sarcophagus. Then we drove to the hot springs. I had to change in the car (such a fun experience) and went ...

Heading into the desert

... we stopped several times along the way for photos). Looked a bit similar to the Dead Sea with the salt on the water’s edge. Then we drove over dunes 4X4 driving to reach Pyramid mountain, which I could have sworn was an actual pyramid from the distance, but up close could see all the different layers and colours of rocks. Mike and I climbed up onto rocks quite high to get a magnificent view of the surrounding area. Our 4X4 looked tiny down at the ...

... brash creatures were very bold and if you were patient and offered it, they would take left over chicken right out of your hand. They all looked very healthy so we assumed that were well fed by the various tourist groups passing through.

Whist travelling through the desert we had a driver called Jimmie, but Greg called him Possum – as he chose to drive through the sand like Possum Bourne the rally driver. It was a ...

    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
