Tailored Trips
Tailored trips are arranged on demand. The area we cover is the Western Desert of Egypt. From Siwa Oasis, Great Sand Sea, Gilf Kebir, Jebel Uweinat, to all other oasis west of the Nile.  Trips can be arranged on Sit-In basis (people who do not have their own vehicles), and Self-Drive (if you have a desert worthy vehicle that you wish to drive yourself).  Longer and more difficult trips may not be attempted with inexperienced drivers and unequipped vehicles (for Self-Drive).
