Introducing Bawiti

Take one look at Bawiti’s dusty, unappealing main road, and you’ll wonder why you came. You have to scratch beneath the surface of this town to find its charms. Stroll through its fertile palm groves, soak in one of the many hot springs or explore its quiet back streets, where you’ll meet truly friendly, hospitable people.

Until recently, Bawiti was a quiet town dependent on agriculture, but it’s become a tourist hub for trips to the White and Black Deserts, with the Golden Mummies an added draw. Be warned that upon arrival you may be accosted by overzealous safari guides before you even step off the bus.
