- Pick up you’ll be picked usually around 3:00 Pm ( depends on your hotel’s location In Sharm El Sheikh) .
- Drive to Wadi-Mander Valley our guides will pick you up from the hotel to an enjoyable short drive to mander-valley approximately 30 minutes away from sharm el sheikh city, you can enjoy the stunning natural views of the desert’s landscape along the way.
- Short Camel Ride the program starts by a short camel ride for exactly 20 minutes, some of our guests would rather stay in the AC-Bus and there is no problem as we understand for some it could be considered a bumpy ride, The camels are meant to drop you off by the Bedouin tents and you can take lots of pictures along the way to the tent, there will be also a camera man of our team who is video taping everything the whole time and he will be with you on foot during the 20 minutes camel ride, we are often asked are the camels loose and we will by our own ? of course we understand how worrying this may sound but Don’t worry it’s safe, the camels are not loose and you’ll be always guided by little Bedouin people who are holding the rope during the 20 minutes ride.
- Rest in Bedouin Tents the camels will drop you off at the bedouin tents and there you will find our bus along with the rest of the group ( the ones who choose to skip the camel ride) and you get to spend 15 minutes meditation and rest in the heart of the mountains and enjoy your welcome drinks, the Bedouin drink called Habbak Tea, it’s very natural and very safe to drink, all of our drinks and food are served by bottled water, The Bedouins have to always stay in a good shape in the desert to be able to function properly as a society so they take healthy food and drinks very seriously, imagine how they live in the desert with no pharmacies or no doctors? don’t they get sick! and when they do! don’t they require medical attention? what’s the source of their successful Life style in the desert by their own? Well they rely on herbs and natural medication, they have a herb for almost any kind of illness and it works really well, in short trust the drinks and you won’t be disappointed as in some cases it’s used as a very beneficial treatment, if you have a stomach-ache for example or if you have a high blood pressure, it really helps.
- Bedouin Bread Baking our group will watch the Bedouins will they are baking their Bedouin bread and every member of our group will take the chance to experience how he would function if he had to live in the desert! everybody is welcome to try a hands on experience.
- Mountain Sunset View now the group will climb a little hill to take some pictures for the astonishing sunset view and experience the desert breeze.
