Siwa Oasis in detail


Siwa Town has a great collection of places to sleep, with everything from competitively priced budget pads to dazzling top-end options. Many midrange and top-end sleeping options can also be found further afield around Gebel Dakrur and Sidi Jaafar.

The police here are very jittery about people camping close to town. If you want to sleep in the desert, it’s best to organise a tour with a local guide.
