Camping out in the White Desert was amazing and definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Egypt. Our camp-site was set up in the midst of the glistening white desert. As we approached, our ears were filled with the sound of light beating drums and traditional music sung by the local crew. Seeing the sunset over the vast landscape was breathtaking.
The meals were simple enough, but tasty and in plentiful supply. We started with an appetizing lentil soup starter, then devoured a succulent roast chicken and rice combo with an array of fresh vegetables. The after dinner entertainment was sensational and everyone seemed so cheerful, with games, dancing and singing around the camp-fire before we retired under a blanket of stars.
You need to witness it first-hand! But in the meantime, here’s a video of the Egyptian desert.
