We crossed the lybic desert with Terra-Trips from Cairo to the oases of Baharya, Farafra, Dakhla and El Kargha to arrive in Luxor and return to Cairo.
This was done in a 4X4 with an excellent driver and our guide Walid who made us discover sublime places.
I will always remember the crossing of the white desert and the sunset during our bivouac. With the pure white limestone formations that gradually turn to ocher and the 3 fennec foxes that came to visit us there! Also very spectacular are the basaltic formations of the black desert. As well as all the sumptuous panoramas that we crossed during our journey.
And of course, let's not forget the unmissable places to visit such as the monuments and temples of Luxor and the visit to Cairo with the final show of the “Whirling Dervishes” at Wekalet El-Ghouri, to do absolutely!.
The organization of the trip was perfect, our guide "Walid" speaking perfect French and an expert in the history of his country as well as our driver "Haidul" doing the impossible to satisfy us and both doing their best to make us enjoy the maximum of our trip. Thanks to Terra-Trips for this fabulous experience!
