What an incredible experience! We recently took a safari trip to Bahariya oasis from Cairo, and it exceeded all our expectations.

Absolutely, the journey itself was an adventure. We were picked up right on time in Cairo, and our guide, Ahmed, was knowledgeable and friendly.

The desert landscape was breathtaking, and we got to explore the White Desert, the Black Desert, and Crystal Mountain. The contrast between them was amazing.

And let’s not forget about the food! The traditional Egyptian meals prepared by the campfire were mouthwatering.

We had the opportunity to stargaze in the desert, and it felt like we were on another planet. Truly a magical experience. This safari trip to Bahariya oasis was worth every penny. We highly recommend it!

My family and I just got back from an exciting vacation trip from Cairo to Bahariya, and it was amazing! As soon as we left Cairo with our knowledgeable guide, Ahmed, the adventure began. He made sure to tell us interesting things about the history, culture, and beautiful desert landscapes we were about to see.

The jeep safari through the White Desert was without a question the best part of the trip. We were all amazed by the strange rock shapes. Even better, our kids got to camp out under a starry night sky, which was a magical experience. The food we cooked over the campfire was wonderful, and we really felt like we were a part of nature.

We can’t say enough good things about how friendly and helpful everyone at Bahariya Adventures has been. This tour was better than we could have imagined in every way, and we are already making plans for our next trip. We strongly suggest!

I had an absolutely unforgettable experience on my solo safari trip to Bahariya Oasis from Cairo! From the moment I was picked up at my hotel in Cairo, I knew I was in for something special. The drive to Bahariya was scenic and comfortable, and once we arrived, the adventure truly began.

My guide, Ahmed, was incredibly knowledgeable about the desert and its history. He took us to some of the most stunning locations, from the Black Desert to the crystal-clear waters of the White Desert oasis. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the breathtaking landscapes.

The camp we stayed at was comfortable and provided an authentic desert experience. The food was delicious, and the stargazing at night was simply magical. I met some wonderful fellow travelers, and together we shared stories around the campfire.

This safari trip to Bahariya Oasis was an absolute highlight of my trip to Egypt, and I can’t thank the team at Bahariya Safari Tours enough for making it so special!
