Daily Activities & Local Tours

Not all of our guests want the desert camping experience, yet still the desire to visit, explore and spend the day discovering the diverse desert landscapes and points of interest in the Western Desert of Egypt. For this reason, we have created DAY TOURS; leaving Al Haiz Ecolodge after breakfast and heading out for the day with a picnic lunch, an icebox full of cold water, juice, our tea basket, because we always need Bedouin tea! The day will end at sunset, returning to the Ecolodge, have a rest before dinner time.

If there are several days to fill, we have a large and varied list of daily activities to choose from, or choose them all. One of the great pleasures of living in the desert and on an oasis, there are spring’s everywhere to enjoy, including a cool spring on our property.

Daily activities available: prices in Euro for 2 people
