I have been very lucky to chose Oasis Egypt Safari to spend two days on the desert. Ahmed and Mohamed are most professional and honest organisers I ever met in Egypt.
Ahmed will take you for adventurous 4x4 drive on dunes and between rocks on white desert. He is equipped with all you need to camp on desert, so nothing there left to worry. Bedunian food he prepares himself is delicious, he is cautious about those who are vegetarian and prepares dishes for both meat and veggie lovers. Those who like BBQ will have it on their plates straight from the fireplace that is lit every night by the camp. Water is also provided, and of course traditional tea made on fire too. The atmosphere is beautiful, and Ahmed tells good facts about Egypt, as his English is good to have conversation with. Participating in preparation of the camp and packing it up is good fun. Part from white desert, there is crystal mountain, black desert and other valleys to see. Also sand boarding on dunes. Ahmed perfectly made the ride for good sunset spots,and were stopping in certain places for photos. He himself from time to time snaped photos of us, which is nice too. Always concerned about us being warm enough night time, and having all our stuff with us when moving on. Very humbled person with good heart.
Choosing Oasis Egypt Safari is no mistake experience, you will never forget.
I hope to come back again! Thank you Ahmed, thank you Mohamed. Its been very special time for me, to be on desert, walking bare foot, watching starts, soaking the sun rises and sun sets, experiencing such silence and peace! Very healing place, very beautiful time. Shukran!!!!
Big thank you, and see you again!!

My trip to Cairo was totally amazing! I spent my birthday around the pyramids at Giza Plateau ( my lifelong wish ). Egypt has been on my bucket list for a while,tell you what; it was worth every penny I spent on it. Long story short, my friends and I decided to go on a desert adventure but I’m still not entirely sure how we got so lucky to have met a tour guide named Ahmed Diab who picked us up at oasis restaurant somewhere in Bahariya. He drove us around for hours in his traditionally decorated SUV taking us from one beautiful desert to another, patiently waiting for us to take pics and enjoy ourselves in the sand followed by a small oasis in a desert for a quick swim and some more pics ;) Ahmed was organized and prepared for everything. He set up a big tent at the white desert with sleeping bags and blankets, then started making dinner for us while we were lost in a fiery sunset. He grilled some chicken, even cooked us some delicious soup, rice and veggies etc not to mention how nicely he decorated our table with candles! 😍We were completely mesmerized with the entire scenery under the stars. To make things even more magical, he cooked us a Bedouin tea which we couldn’t get enough of.In addition to that he entertained us by playing music and sang for us along with another Bedouin…Guys this stuff can only be seeing in the movies right? But no, this is a true story, an experience we will never forget thanks to this amazing guy AHMED. Later in the night he set up additional two smaller tents so the four of us can be more comfortable. In the morning he prepared us breakfast, he made sure we were happy from the beginning to the end and for that we would like to thank him with our story. Please look no further, ask for Ahmed Diab, he’s your guy, your tour guide! ❤️

We heard oaboit the white desert from the quite in Luxor. However, we read the rave reviews online and decided to go for it. We chose a 1 night 2 days and ended up with OES (Oasis Egypt Safari). What everyone forgets to list are all the activities you do prior to reaching the campsite. We were in the company of Amed, the owner, and his right hand man Hassan. From the moment we got into the 4x4, we were in AWE. Visited the black desert and hiked around, off to the aquifer that is used for agriculture, then to the crystal desert, drove to a dune and sand boarded (lot of fun), then stood on a high plateau overlooking that incredible On Mars Planet kind of landscape and ran down a steep golden sand hill, stops to take photos along the way and finally the camp site. In addition the desert ride to and back from the camp site was alone a nice adventure. The camp was well situated between a human face and cup cakes white rock formation. We took in that incredible sunset disappearing slowly while the night and stars make their way overhead. They cooked a delish meal, sang traditional Bedouin songs and afterwards tucked us in bed to wake up to the sunrise and coffee. The experience was TRULY MAGICAL!

I always say the universe connects people in unexpected ways.. I contacted Oasis Egypt Safari and Mohamed (Moha for us ) back in November 2019 to organize a trip to the Egyptian desert around April 2020. Unfortunately the pandemic and lockdowns made this impossible and we thought it will never be. But all storms passed, so near 4 months ago I contacted Moha again to make the so desired trip a reality, and we made it.
His company and himself had everything perfectly planned and organized since the moment of the hotel pickup.

We met the company crew and Moha in person near a village where we received a warm welcome and had an excellent lunch. We then started the magical journey to the heart of the desert.

Believe me when I say photos and videos do not make justice. Landscapes and places are unique, breathtaking and so different from one each other that you need a super powered brain to process such beauty in such short time. Also Moha was choosing the perfect music when driving to the different places creating the perfect atmosphere to enjoy and relax.

We camped 2 nights in the middle of the desert in two different places and I can’t choose one over the other.
Second night there were 2 other groups at the place, and after dinner, we ended up all together around the fire dancing at the rhythm of the drums and "flautas" drinking mint tea. We ended up the journey the third day at midday climbing to the top of a mountain near some farmer village to appreciate an outstanding view.

So for those planning to visit Egypt this trip is a must, and if you want everything perfectly planned and organized, you need to contact Oasis Egypt Safari and Mohamed.

Thanks Oasis Egypt Safari and Mohamed for your kindness, infinite patient waiting for us to take thousands of photos of each place, the delicious food and the outstanding service.
We spent a wonderful time and I hope this post will help you guys to have more Argentinians and worldwide tourists visiting you.

The 3-day trip in Black Desert, White Desert, Crystal Mountain, Fayum - Wadi Al Hitan, Wadi El Rayan and Baharya Oasis, organized by Ahmed Diyab, our guide and 4x4 driver, will remain unforgettable!

We lived fantastic moments, thanks to Ahmed, who is nice, amusing, but in the meantime serious and responsible; he organized the whole trip very well, so we had only the joy of the wonderful pictures we saw and the moments we spent with delight in this little corner of Egyptian heaven, without worries about what we’ll eat, where we’ll stay or how we’ll get from one place to another ... Thank you, Ahmed and we hope to have the opportunity to come back in this little paradise again!

We recommend this trip, in the company of Ahmed Diyab, to anyone who wants to spend some unforgettable moments, without worries! And to sing admiringly: "What a wonderful world!"
We saw ancient whales skeletons in an extraordinary landscape, foamy cool waterfall in the desert, strange limestone cliffs, magic lakes, crystals on the mountains, magical shooting stars on desert crystal clear night sky.. Wonders with which God has blessed this Earth... They will remain forever with us in memories!

P.S. The price of the trip was very reasonable too. Go for it!

My husband and I were looking for a place to relax and simply be away from everything and everyone. We have heard wonderful reviews about the White and the Black Deserts of Egypt and wanted to experience it ourselves. It was much more that what we have expected! Our guide Ahmed was amazing, he took us around the White Desert, the Black Desert and the Oasis, told us some interesting stories and facts throughout our stay. We camped under the stars, drank bedouin tea that Ahmed made on a campfire in the middle of the desert. It was so magical sleeping in the tent and then waking up early in the morning to watch the sunrise over the White Desert. I will never forget these two days! Thank you Ahmed for a great experience! I love Egypt ❤️🇪🇬🌵🌞🏝

We contacted this company through the website because of the good opinions I read. We hired a night of camping in the desert. The experience was wonderful, the guide was very kind, the landscapes are amazing, the dinner was delicious, and sleeping in the desert with the starry sky was a dream. The activity met all our expectations, perhaps more than we expected. I recommend it 100% and if I return to Egypt I will repeat the experience but more nights to better enjoy all the landscapes and the calm of the desert.

We had such an awesome time with Ahmed and the other guides!! This trip beyond exceeded my expectations. From amazing meals to sandboarding to thrilling jeep safaris, we couldn't have asked for more fun! The guides gave us as much time as we wanted to stop and take photos throughout the trip, and also gave us a lot of free time to relax which is always appreciated on guided tours. They set up and broke down camp in minutes. The camp had extra warm blankets and the option to sleep outside under the stars or in our tent. We loved hearing their beautiful songs around the campfire and talking with them. Everyone was so friendly and polite. Highly recommend this trip. We can't wait to come back!

It was a highly recommended experience, outside of what is usually offered in tourist packs.
They pick you up at your hotel and take you to a beautiful place where Ahmed and his team welcome you. The food they prepare is local and delicious.
The drive in the white and black deserts was amazing, the views, the sand boarding experience, all excellent. The sunset was stunning, one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life, watching the sunset while the moon presides over the sky! We highly recommend this trip.

Friendly staff, they don't speak much English but it's not necessary because you understand them perfectly, the two Muhammad were just marvelous.

I’m so glad I went to see the White & Black Desert during my time in Egypt. I booked through a contact I was recommended by a friend when visiting Egypt, Hala, and she connected me with a driver and a guide to make the journey. To be honest I was a bit hesitant to go on my own but everything was better than expected - I felt safe, comfortable and like I was experiencing a beautiful secret of the earth! Everyone involved in all of the steps (from booking to going on the trip itself) was polite and professional, friendly and welcoming. Ahmed (the guide) was efficient in everything he did and you can tell he has a routine down for offering a wonderful experience. The land cruiser is a fun ride and there’s no way I could have seen the sites without the knowledge and skill of the guide. The food was delicious, the fire cozy. Ahmed set up a little tent just for me with plenty of warm and comfy blankets and pillows. The stars are unreal and the amazing white formations that spring up from the desert sand will blow your mind. To camp in this quiet, serene setting that was once underwater is a way to see a completely different side of the beautiful country that Egypt is. I hope if you’re thinking of making the trip, you include this adventure in it! There are also some optional activities like soaking in a local hot spring and sand boarding - just let them know in advance and they can make it happen for you! I would love to return, solo or with others, and spend more than just one night there (although one night was perfect with the time and itinerary I had to work with this time around). Totally unique and magical. Thank you for everything!
