Welcome to the mysterious, magical and remote (sorry, we ran out of m's) White Desert, a sub-desert of the Western Desert. This eight day whirlwind of an itinerary allows you to explore the delights of Cairo, trek through the desert and bathe in fresh hot springs.

Arrive into Cairo and be met and transferred to a hotel near the pyramids of Giza for one night.
In the morning a visit to the pyramids is on the cards before the drive heads west and the journey to Bahariya begins.
In Bahariya visit the golden Mummies which date back to the 12th Dynasty. The drive then continues on into the White Desert where camp is set up and the night is spent under the stars.
Rise early to start the adventerous trek through the desert, carrying lunch and water. In the evening head to the designated camp spot and meet back up with the tour jeeps.
Trek through spectacular desert scenery through little oases and chalk white rock shapes fashioned from the wind and sand over centuries.
Drive to Farafra and enjoy a bathe in one of many hot springs, after visit the local museum and return to Cairo for the last night.
Visit the Egyptian museum and enjoy a spot of shopping before flying home.
