Marhaba! Welcome to Al Haiz Oasis. I am Abdu Shaban and this is my family land, 30 kms south of Baharya Oasis. Our family roots go back many generations here in Tabl Amon.
I named it Dreamland in 2011; once barren desert, now has a solar-powered fresh water spring plunge pool, a main 2 bedroom house, a palm tree house, several new guest rooms, a large Bedouin tent, handmade Bazaar, meditation/yoga tent, fully equipped kitchen serving meals, snacks, fresh juices and Bedouin tea to our guests throughout the day.
The land contains over 200 date palms, organic fruit trees, vegetables and animal farm including: pigeon, duck, sheep, lamb, cattle, a donkey named Cece and 2 friendly farm dogs – Foxy & Lucky .

Bedouin Desert guide of 20 years.

Discover, explore, photograph and experience the Western Desert with us. We create both public and private tours of Baharya, Farafra, Dakhla, Kharga, Siwa and Fayoum Oasis.

We also travelled out on longer deep desert excursions of Abu Muharrik Dunes, Caraween Dunes, Gebel Uwaynat, EL Gilf Kebir (currently restricted access), and explore the petroglyphs, silica glass fields and dunes of The Great Sand Sea, Abu Muharrik Dunes & Caraween Dunes.

Whether its an over-night to the White Desert from Cairo, or a deep desert safari by GPS, I have spent my entire life living, and learning in the Sahara Desert of Egypt.
