Sahara Inn Motel
If you consider spending the night in the town of Zafarana, the Sahara Inn Motel offers up some bare-bones concrete cubicles and a basic roadside restaurant...
There is no official accommodation for the general public at either monastery, although male pilgrims are allowed to spend the night in a dormitory at the Monastery of St Anthony with written consent from the monastery’s Cairo headquarters. Since this is a major destination for Coptic Christians on religious pilgrimages, guests are expected to attend prayer sessions, respect the atmosphere of the grounds and leave a donation at the time of departure.
