“Great Camp, Great People!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

I'm writing this review much belated to my visit last summer. After arriving in Dahab, I looked for a place to crash and call home for the next month while diving. I found a great deal at The Fighting Kangaroo and had no regrets. Its right on the main strip in town and the owners are great.

Sam was very helpful and friendly my entire stay and consider a good friend I'd like to see once back in Egypt one day.

Lodging is affordable, location is perfect and the atmosphere peaceful.

very nice place with some old dahab character, basic & clean rooms at amazing prices and staff who are happy to help out and fix any problems for you in my experience.

have stayed here several times over the years, in different rooms and have always been satisfied. also see some of the same faces among guests, so must be a good thing!

Room Tip: unless on a tighter than tight budget go for "comfortable" or "top" rooms

This is one of the few places in the main strip with true value for money and bedouin hospitality. They offer clean budget rooms and I've stayed here many times and once for a long period...there are many other expats who stay at El Bulti Fighting Kangaroo for long periods.Its a friendly family run place, lead by a bedoin who has been running the place since the 1970s and his son.

There are two bedoin camps called Fighting Kangaroo in Dahab, this one is next door to 7th Heaven hotel, tucked in behind just steps away from the main pedestrian street along the ocean. For that reason it can be easy to miss, I only found it by accident myself the first time (I was staying in the other FK and the sign pointing the 'wrong' direction piqued my interest).

The owners are happy to arrange trips for you and will sometimes fire up the BBQ to cook for guests. It is quite near the muzin tower of the mosque so you'll hear the calls to prayer quite well, but hey...its Egypt. Overall a really great place to stay in Dahab!
