Corona virus information.

At a time when the virus is seen as a threat and measures are being taken worldwide, it is a very uncertain time for all of us.
The airlines that we deal with the most (Transavia & amp; TUI) assume that normal flying will be possible from July.
They have taken measures whereby flight tickets can be booked free of charge or that vouchers are available in the event of force majeure, for example, of a second wave of infections.
Livethebedouinlife has decided to make the trips available to book as planned for the upcoming season.
This means that when you book you make a deposit of 200 euros, which guarantees your place. The remaining amount must be paid two weeks before departure.
If things go differently, we will reschedule the trip to another date. In consultation, your reservation can then be taken to the new date or your deposit will be refunded immediately.
We hope with all our heart that we can make these trips with you again next season. As the Bedouine says, InshaAllah ..

BOOK

Saturday, February 20, 2021 we will leave for Sinai with a group of adventurous children and parents.

The upcoming spring break there is an excellent opportunity to go on a very special trip with your child on a very special trip.

Under the guidance of the Muzeïna tribe we travel by foot and by camel through the desert where they bring us home in 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 from the line disappears so that you can return to your own nature. You can completely surrender to the rhythm of the desert.

Upon arrival in Egypt, transportation will be ready to take us to the beginning of the Sinai desert, where we will be welcomed with a warm campfire and delicious food. We spend the night here under the starry sky. The next day we leave by camel and by foot into the desert.

Every day we travel between 5 to 7 kilometers. You share a camel with your child. This strengthens the cooperation and dynamics between you on this journey. You can alternate or ride the camel together.
On request it is possible to reserve two camels for you.

As a parent you can relax completely and you will be well taken care of. You don’t have to think about anything, not about food, groceries or other everyday worries.

These five days we slowly travel deeper into the desert, we cross mountains to camp in the valley or on the sandy plains, eat and spend the night under the stars. To reach certain places, you have to climb and climb over mountain areas and sand dunes. We will visit some historical sites such as the “Nawamis”, prehistoric stone buildings dating from the “Copper Stone Age” (4000-3150 BC). We spend the night in the El Goudra oasis and we trek to Jebel Mileihis, a flat sandstone mountain high above the desert.

Wednesday night is the last night in the desert. Thursday morning after breakfast we leave for the Livethebedouinlife camp. This is a beautiful & amp; quiet beach in Nuweiba. Here you share a comfortable thatched beach house located on the sea of ​​Aqaba. The beach is fully equipped and here too you are well taken care of, entirely in the atmosphere of the Bedouin.

Shortly before departure there is an introduction / information gathering. On this evening you can inform about all questions you have and get to know your traveling companions and discuss the 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 find sustainable alternatives to limit the negative effects of tourism and to enhance the positive effects. Livethebedouinlife attaches great importance to the responsible handling of culture, nature and the environment. We adhere to cultural codes as much as possible and expect that from our travelers. If applicable, it is 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. A sweater, cardigan for the evenings, and more airy clothes for the daytime.

For traveling at this time of the year, a pair of warm socks and jacket are nice to have with you. Some parts of the trip you will have to guide your camel on foot over the mountains, therefore shoes / sturdy sandals / slippers that you walk on are indispensable for this trip.

It is also important to bring a sleeping mat and a sleeping bag.

Don’t forget something on the head, a cloth, hat or cap! It is important to protect yourself while riding through the desert on your camel and for 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 will also carry your luggage, it is best to choose a flexible backpack, sports bag or soft suitcase.
