My partner and I did what was meant to be an hour long camel ride here, hen we arrived it was clear from the word go that it was a mistake. When you pay peanuts you get monkeys we say, we were escorted to two unhappy camels one of which was bleeding from where its nostrel had been torn. This... More

We booked this trip as our 21 year old daughter wanted to do a horse riding trip! So glad we did! Great staff, lovely horses, I rode shakira' a beauty. We rode to the Bedouin tent and had tea and got to take in the sights of the gorgeous sights of the dessert ! Worth it

Depending on the horses they have there at the time, and of course the instructor you have will depend on your view of this centre. I have witnessed both compassionate instructors who really care about the animals and then also some who most definitely do not. My personal experience is the horses we rode were taken care of and Sayeed... More

I really really really do not understand how other reviewers can say that this people take care of their horses and that the horses are fit. They are covered in sores and have no meat on the body. We are two experienced riders who know horses, even owned a few. We reluctantly mounted the horses and started the trip to... More

This is the worst stables I have ever been to. Please do not go there. The horses were starving and covered in open sores. The tack was in terrible condition and some broke during the ride. Staff were completely disinterested in the customers' safety or the horses' welfare. Some of the tack collapsed during the ride. No safety brief was... More

We didn't get as much time as we paid for as they left us behind by accident plus they overcharged us but we still really enjoyed it and would recommend riding in the desert. We went on quads first, I thought it would be amazing on a horse and it was. The horses were all looked after, they seem slim... More

Myself and my girlfriend (who is a very experienced rider and I am not) were very apprehensive before going on this trip knowing about the problems of Egypt. However, people from Britain need to understand their situation and that if they visit them and ride the horses they will get more money and be able to care better for the... More
