BOOK

We travel by foot and camel through the desert, climb the Moses mountain and sleep for two days on the beach of LiveTheBedouinLife.

Guided by the Muzeïna tribe, we travel through the desert in the south of the Sinai desert, they share with us their way of life and travel.
We eat and share around the fire and sleep under the stars. This is a journey that offers you plenty of space to get in touch with nature and your own nature.

Traveling through this area under the guidance of this tribe offers you the unique opportunity to experience life in its authentic form. The desert ensures that all noise disappears from the line so that you can come back to your own nature. You will be well taken care of during the entire journey, you can completely surrender to the rhythm of the desert, of the day and completely relax.

Members of the Muzeina tribe and the LiveTheBedouinLife team are our guides during the journey. This team takes care of us, the food, the animals and everything we need. By taking other members of the Muzeina tribe with us every time, we ensure that different families can reap the benefits of these desert trips.

We travel 6 days by camel and by foot about 10 to 15 kilometers a day and as much as possible in silence. We sleep and live in the open air and we visit several historical places, such as the oasis El Goudra and the beautiful Jebel Mileihis. We climb over mountain peaks and through valleys and walk deeper and deeper into the desert.
The area is wide and varied and you will not get bored easily. The seventh day we leave the desert by jeep to Santa Catharina. There we have dinner and spend the night in a Bedouin camp. There you share a room with a shower and toilet with a fellow traveler (private room at an additional cost is possible on request).

For some of the group it will be a short night because at 2:30 we will climb with a group the Moses mountain, also the highest point of Sinai. Note that it is quite a climb. “Gabak Müsà”, “Mountain of Moses” is a 2285 meter high mountain. According to the Christian story, it is on this mountain that Moses received his Ten Commandments.
After the climb you can rest for a while, after breakfast we depart by jeep back to the coast of Nuweiba. There we spend the night in the Livethebedouinlife Camp.
This is a beautiful private beach near Nuweiba. Here you share a beach house on the Gulf of Aqaba. The beach is fully equipped and you will also be well taken care of here, completely in the atmosphere of the Bedouin.

You are cordially invited!

The entire Sinai desert is full of history and with every step you take you feel how solid the ground is under your feet. At a time when everything is developing so quickly, changing and requiring constant adjustments from you, the complete opposite is true in the desert. Your environment there is almost motionless, it challenges you to see and experience life and yourself again in its pure form.

When you want to be alone there is the desert, when you want to be together or want to share there is the campfire with good company. But most of all, feel FREE!

The desert is a huge historical area where in all these thousands of years no house has been built and no road has been built. Nature in its full power, and you can feel it. Entering this desert with its original inhabitants, the Muzeina tribe does something to you.

It will be a magical journey!

Our travel policy

Tourism is the largest industry in the world, with enormous potential for economic growth and employment. Unfortunately, tourism also causes negative effects on nature and local cultures. We try to look for sustainable alternatives to limit the negative effects of tourism and to enhance the positive effects. Livethebedouinlife attaches great importance to dealing responsibly with culture, nature and the environment. We adhere to cultural codes as much as possible and expect the same from our travelers. It is -if any- easy to forget that we sometimes travel through very poor areas.

Because we travel by camel, a pair of long pants are handy to take with you and some lighter clothes for the day. During this period it is hot in the Sinai. It is good to bring a sweater or cardigan for the climb up the Mozesberg. Some parts of the journey will require you to accompany your camel over the mountains by foot, so shoes/sturdy sandals/flip flops that are comfortable to walk on are indispensable for this journey.

We have a desert sleeping bag for every participant, but we do ask you to bring your own sleeping bag or sheet bag (duvet cover). An sleeping mat is not necessary

Don’t forget something for the head, a cloth, hat or cap! It is important to protect yourself well when riding through the desert on your camel and from the sun in general. So don’t forget your sunscreen! A toothbrush and greasy cream or oil is also nice to have with you in the desert.

Because we travel by camel and it will also carry your luggage, it is best to choose a flexible backpack, sports bag or soft suitcase.

Since the first lockdown, travel to Sharm el Sheik has remained possible with a negative PCR test on arrival and return to the Netherlands and an urgent advice for a 10-day home quarantine that can stop after five days in the event of a negative PCR test.

Since 1 July 2021 you can go to Egypt without a PCR test if you are fully vaccinated. For the return trip you do need a PCR test.

For the test back to the Netherlands, we work with a doctor who comes to take the test on the beach.
