Desert Lodge | In various regions throughout Egypt there are beautifully crafted Eco Lodges. Some made of natural materials of the region and some build to blend in with the surrounding environment. Usually located owned and run, these lodges are a great way to really experience traditional ways of life. A Desert Lodge offers basic facilities for an overnight stay with restaurant in house.

Coastal Camp | Our coastal camp is usually set up within one of Egypt's National Parks which offer designated areas for camping, which can be out in the open air or within palmed beach huts, perfect for shelter in windy days and shade in the hotter months. We carry with us equipment for sleeping & food supplies as some location offer basic kitchen facilities where the locals help in preparing meals. Some locations also offer toilet facilities, alternatively we set up a makeshift toilet area not far from camp.

While travelling in the Desert & Mountainous regions of Sinai, work opportunities and therefore income is distributed between multiple desert dwelling families. Wherever possible we purchase local produce, encourage souvenir purchase from the Bedouin women and use local homes for meals. The projects we support in this region are:  

    • Nawamis Desert School | An initiative developed by a UK charity that was brought about to enable the Bedouin villagers to remain in their desert homes and maintain their traditional way of life and still have their children educated. It also provides a special meeting place where Bedouin tribes can gather and celebrate.    

    • Medicinal and Aromatic Plant Gardens | a local initiative to preserve Rare medicinal plants unique to the region. Herbs gardens have been created on various plots in land throughout St Catherine’s and are also cultivated in greenhouses for preserving biodiversity, research and for sale.
