Roar across Egypt's rugged Eastern Desert on a quad bike to a Bedouin village on this 5-hour desert safari from Hurghada. Sip Bedouin tea on Arabian carpets, brave an optional shisha pipe, enjoy dinner, ride a camel across the desert sands, learn about Bedouin culture from the locals, and maybe even catch sunset from a sand dune.
The afternoon begins around 1pm when you're collected from your hotel for the air-conditioned journey to the quad bike station. Here, don your helmet, wrap a scarf around your face to shield yourself from sand, and enjoy a quick orientation on the vehicle and a test drive.From here, it's off into the desert. Zip through valleys and over low dunes as you travel 28 miles (45 kilometres) to a traditional Bedouin village.Here, relax on Arabian carpets as you sip sweet Bedouin tea, made from a mix of tea and desert herbs, choose to enjoy a shisha water pipe, or perhaps shop for traditional Bedouin crafts.Next, hop aboard a trusty camel and ride through the village Bedouin style, high above the sands. During autumn and winter, you'll be able to catch the sunset the while you have your dinner, enjoy the view from a sand dune before driving back to the base station: you'll return to your hotel around 6:30pm - 7pm.
