A journey through the Western Desert – From Cairo to Alexandria and the remote oases and spectacular landscapes of the Western Desert, this is truly a remarkable journey of discovery.

From Cairo to Alexandria and the remote oases and spectacular landscapes of the Western Desert, this is truly a remarkable journey of discovery.

From Cairo, with its astounding sights, you drive north to Alexandria, ancient centre of learning, and El Alamein, site of the epic wartime battle, before venturing deep into the Western Desert. In this stunning landscape, which includes the Black Desert with its extraordinary black pyrites and the unforgettable White Desert, where huge calcite 'icebergs' litter the sands, you visit some of the fascinating oases. These include ancient Siwa, where Alexander the Great consulted the Oracle; Bahariya, with its ancient cliff-top tomb complex; Farafra - the smallest and most isolated oasis; the agricultural Dakhla Oasis, and El Kharga with its temple built by Darius the Great. The tour ends in Luxor, ancient Thebes, a fitting end to a remarkable journey.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
