Lonely Planet review

About 4km west of Bawiti, near the Siwa road, Ahmed’s is an old favourite among travellers and trans-Africa groups. There are cool, pleasant, domed double rooms as well as more basic ones (some of which have air-con, the rest fans), or you can sleep under the stars on the roof (E£20). Simple meals (E£30) and beer are available, which is just as well, because it’s a long walk to town if you have no transport. There’s a hot spring a few steps from the hotel.

Our independent authors have visited Ahmed’s Safari Camp and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Siwa Oasis & the Western Desert.
