Desert safari tours in Egypt and Jordan

The deserts of Egypt and Jordan are amongst the most spectacular in the world. From vast sand seas to weird moonscapes, from prehistoric rock art to colourful Bedouin campsites, these unique environments make an ideal destination for the more adventurous traveller. Our desert safari tours may also include some cultural and historic sightseeing, but they concentrate on getting out into the desert and experiencing time in these beautiful but barren environments. Most tours include at least one memorable night camping under the stars, combined with more comfortable accommodation elsewhere.

Note Following advice from the UK Foreign Office we are currently not operating any tours through Egypt's western deserts, including the Siwa Oasis. Bookings for travel on these tours in 2016 may still be made, but backup itineraries will be provided in case we are not able to run the full tour as planned.

Customer feedback

"The crew were tops! Very knowledgable and helpful in everything and being so down to earth! the layout of the truck alone puts all other overland trucks to shame. I had comments from people on the other tours and they all said they were very jealous of our truck. i have enjoyed my time immensely... would do it all over again!"

Ms. Adele Samuel (Istanbul to Cairo - overland expedition)
