The Western Desert in Egypt is magnificent. More than just a desert, the vast landscape has so much to offer with each of its oases presenting a wonderful and different perspective of this amazing country. Words cannot really describe it and photos do not seem to do it any justice (although I’ve included one here!). Well off the beaten track, you will need to experience it for yourself to realise how spectacular it truly is!
Covering about 700 000 square kilometres between the Sudan and the Mediterranean, the Western Desert lies to the west of the Nile, and actually accounts for about two-thirds of Egypt’s area. You can discover this spectacular part of the country on our Dunes and Tombs and Sandblaster tours in Egypt.
