Facts about the Egyptian Sahara Desert

Egyptian Deserts cover about 20% of the Earths land surface in Egypt and are often thought of as unforgiving environments where it is difficult to survive even a day or two. While you do need special preparations to stay in the desert, its actually quite possible to do it even fun! Deserts provide the perfect atmosphere for some really interesting desert activities you won’t be able to do anywhere else in the world.

Sahara Desert safari is a term that covers cool excursions you would take into the desert. Of course, as many are inexperienced when it comes to the desert, it is always necessary to be accompanied by a guide and Bedouin driver who has a great deal of training and experience in desert activities in Egypt.

Best of Egypt Desert Activities you Should Do

Besides camping in the Egyptian desert there are other desert safari activities you can enjoy in Egypt are

Sand boarding and Sand Dune Bashing.

Sand boarding is totally different from snowboarding, where you climb up a sand dune with your board, and slide down either standing it’s a fun activity, and one that you can only enjoy in the desert, as there is no man made sand dunes that would suit the activity. You can enjoy this in certain point in the white desert or the great Sand sea.

Dune bashing in the Egyptian desert is a form of off-roading on sand dunes where you’re riding in a 4×4 Jeep that climbs up the dunes, drives along its crest, and sometimes crosses to the other side of the dune. It’s quite exciting activity and you have to hold tight as you’re actually leaning sideways during the ride along the crest of the dune.
