There are many tour operators in Hurghada offering desert safaris, which one you choose depends on your preferred mode of transport. A popular choice is by quad bike as it adds to the fun of the journey and is an exhilarating way to travel. After an instruction session and a practice run, you will travel with your guide through the sand dunes to a Bedouin village where you will meet the locals, have a traditional Egyptian meal, ride a camel and then enjoy some local music and culture before returning back to town.
If you prefer a more leisurely way to explore the desert, why not join a horse-back tour? Your group and a guide will head off into the desert for an amazing trek across the sands. The tour lasts approximately three hours.
Another alternative is to take jeep tour – be driven through dry, parched plains for an hour and then continue on foot up a small hill to meet your Bedouin hosts and be introduced to their way of life. In the evening, you will watch the spectacular sunset as you eat a traditional barbeque dinner before returning back to Hurghada.
