The unforgettable White & Black Desert
A special experience is an expedition through the Western Desert. For many years, the Western Desert was closed to tourists. From 2022 it is now possible to travel there again. The oasis belt (Bahariya, Farafra, Daklah, Kaharga) with its very varied desert landscape, White & Black Desert, offers beautiful nature experiences and unforgettable campgrounds.
