“Never Expected to See this in the Desert”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

When we arrived at Siwa our hotel provided us a guide who took us out to the lake for sundown. It was spectacular. There was a swimming hole nearby, and the view was just stunning. Take a meal along with you and watch the sunset. There are also vendors in reed kiosks selling drinks and snacks.

“Dank water with Lots of Mosquitoes”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

It is a big shallow salt lake in the desert, featureless and filled with voracious mosquitoes. Skip it.
