Bahariya Oasis in detail


A number of sights in Bahariya can be included as part of a tour by the many safari operators in Bawiti. Some can also be done on foot, if the weather is cool. The main attraction, however, is the surrounding desert scenery.

Practical Tip: Your Ticket to Antiquities

Bahariya’s authorities issue a one-day ticket that gives entry to five of the Bahariya Oasis’ ancient sites: the Golden Mummies Museum, the Tomb of Zed Amun Ef Ankh, the Tomb of Bannentiu, the Temple of Ain Al Muftella and the Temple of Alexander. Tickets are available at the museum's ticket office, so stop there first. Yup, you gotta pay for ’em all, even if you only visit one.
