Siwa oasis desert safari & siwa oasis camping holidays
Siwa oasis desert safari & siwa oasis camping holidays in Egypt.
Siwa Oasis, once the most mysterious of all Egypt’s oases, Siwa Oasis is also the most fascinating. It’s history has not only been shaped by all major civilizations, but also by the contrast of the surrounding desert with the lush soil of the oasis setting.
The Siwan people have their own culture and customs and, as well as speaking Arabic, we speak own Berber (Amazigh) language. Women still wear traditional costumes and silver jewelers and Siwa remains one of the best places to buy traditional local handicrafts.
Climb through the ruins of the old city for magnificent views of the whole oasis. Walk, hire a bicycle or ride in a caretta (donkey cart) to outlying sights and bathing places. Make a desert safari tour, a camel ride in the hidden treasures of siwa, Take a dip in one of the many cool and refreshing springs. Taste traditional Siwan foods. Enjoy a truly unforgettable and unique cultural experience
