Full description
You'll begin by traveling from your hotel by jeep to the tour starting point. Once there, you will venture for 26 kilometers into the picturesque desert of Hurghada. You'll drive through the sunset observation area until you reach a Bedouin camp, and once at your Bedouin tent you will begin a camel riding session for 15 minutes. Following that, receive a cool and refreshing welcome drink as well as a herbal Bedouin tea. You will then travel with your guide to experience traditional Bedouin life, after which you will enjoy a Bedouin buffet dinner with romantic candles. After dinner, relish the tranquility of the desert whilst watching millions of stars in a calm atmosphere away from the noise of the city. Your guide will then take you on a trip to the edge of the universe to enjoy the vision of the distant milky way represented through the stars. You will have then the opportunity to see some of the planets, and will also learn exciting information about space and star science. Once you are done admiring the stars, you will be driven back to your hotel by Jeep.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The Guide told us a lot about the desert, stars and Bedouin life. The sundowner on top the hill was a wonderful experience, especially the beautiful sunset. After that we watched stars and the full moon, with the guide telling us a lot of interesting facts about the stars. The food was great as well, but especially our guide left a lasting impression with his intricate knowledge . We were there in January , and I would advise bringing warm clothing. The desert can become very cold.
