Tour description provided by Viator

If you love adventure and traditional Bedouin culture, then this exciting desert safari in Hurghada is the perfect combination. Live like a Bedouin for a few hours including eating their traditional dishes, drinking Bedouin tea, and riding a camel. Tour includes a 45-minute self-drive beach buggy safari and reptile house visit!
Your all-terrain vehicle will collect you from your hotel around 1pm for transfer to the Bedouin desert zone. For a bird's eye view of the many colors and striking rock formations of the extended desert, you can choose to descend the vehicle and climb either Raml or Balcony Mountain. Next, it's back in the four-wheel drive for the drive to the beach buggy station. Cover your face with a Bedouin scarf and think of nothing but the excitement of the journey, as you drive at high speeds over smooth sand for 45 minutes. Afterwards, meet and greet friendly local Bedouin families before entering a traditional tent. Here, sit around a small table and drink their famous Bedouin tea – along with a hookah pipe if you like! - while talking to them about their life and traditions. Here you'll learn how Bedouin make remedies from herbs and desert plants, watch Bedouin women cooking and kneading traditional Bedouin bread: you can choose to help draw water from a deep well. Next, rest your feet and hop aboard a real Arabian camel. Take a leisurely tour around the village, compare the different sizes and colors of the tents, and admire a stunning desert sunset. You are invited for a Bedouin BBQ where you'll enjoy a feast prepared the Bedouin way. On your way back to your hotel, stop at the reptile house to see a collection of reptiles native to the desert: snakes, lizards, chameleons, and many more. You'll return to your hotel around 7pm, though timings can vary.
