I booked with this trip when I was at Cairo. The price is really vary for different people from different approaches. In fact the amount that I paid was 400EGP extra than my two traveler that I been grouped with. Yes good thing they do a grouping tour which was good for a solo traveler like me to desert. Basically... More

I was booked through these guys for a 2 day/1 night White Desert tour and I did not enjoy the experience. I was already in Bawiti, but I had to wait until the other people in my group showed up on the bus from Cairo which happened around 1:30pm. We were taken to the Ahmed Safari Camp which was kind...

The tour to the black and white deserts was wonderful and an experience we will never forget. Our guide was very friendly, considerate, devoted, helpful and interested to show us all the beautiful places in this area. The camp is very nice and we enjoyed our stay so much! Would love to come back.

Three day two night tour with Ahmed Safari's. One night in the hotel and the other in the White Sand Desert. Hotel room was basic but clean and comfortable. Certainly better than other places I have stayed in Egypt. The safari was well organised and the driver safe and friendly. Plenty of warm blankets, food etc. The White Sand Desert... More

I stayed there twice, it's a very basic camp, cheap, food is not bad and service is fine. The safari and desert team are the best in Bawiti, they know nothing but desert. They have all the gears needed, tents, sleeping bags, wood for camping fire, etc... I would recomend it if you will be having a short stay in... More

Our experience here was limited, as they facilitated a trip to the White Desert for us. We did have the opportunity to view rooms due to a friendship with other safari-goers, as well as access their shared(?) WC and a lunch provided. We were... less than impressed by what was on offer: flies infested the restaurant area more than anywhere... More

This place will likely ruin your trip to the White Desert and the Bahariya Oasis. Let me go through what's wrong: Room: Dark, very cold, 'rustic' in the sense that the interior is the same as the exterior - brick and stone. There are no seats, furnishing is a small 20" table... you won't spend much time here because you... More

My overnight camping experience at White Desert with Ahmed Safari was arranged by my overall Egypt tour operator, Habibi Tours. The moment Megahed of Ahmed Safari picked me up from the bus station at Bahariya Oasis, I felt like I was in good hands right away. Before heading to the White Desert, I was brought first to the hotel to... More

They charged us 40EL for tickets and later we found out that the ticket is no more required since last summer. But we can not get the money back anyway. The owner increased the price of hotel after we came back from the safari......True, this is complete dump!

Disregard the one-off reviews written recommending this place - it is terrible. We were booked into this place by a tour company in Cairo for one night and in the desert for another. The sheets looked unchanged from the last unfortunate person who stayed there and the toilet didn't work nor had been cleaned recently, if ever. We complained to... More
