Corona virus information.
In this 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 airline companies we deal with most (Transavia & TUI) assume that normal flights will be available from September.
They have taken measures whereby flight tickets can be rebooked free of charge or that vouchers are available in the event of force majeure, for example a second wave of infections.
We as Livethebedouinlife have decided to make the trips available for booking as planned for the upcoming season.
This means that when you book you make a deposit of 200 Euro, which guarantees your place. The remaining amount must be paid two weeks before departure.
If it does go differently, we will reschedule the trip to a different date, in consultation your reservation can then be taken to the new date or you will receive your deposit refunded immediately.
We hope with all our heart that we can make these trips with you again next season. As The bedouin tribe says, InshaAllah ..

WOMEN DESERT TRIP
Under the guidance of the Muzeïna tribe, we travel by foot and by camel through the desert during the period of the full moon. We eat and share around the fire and sleep under the stars.
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.
The rhythm of traveling through the desert with each other, on foot or on a camel, quickly creates a calm. It is getting quieter and wider around you.
We travel 6 days per camel and per foot about 10 to 15 kilometers per day and as much as possible in silence. We sleep and live in the open air. We visit several historical sites, such as the oasis El Goudra and the more than 5000 year old stone domes of Nawamis. We climb over mountain peaks and through valleys and walk deeper and deeper into the desert. The environment is wide and varied and will not be boring.
Traveling with the knowledge of the tribe and in the safety of the group is a primal feeling that we are quite away from here in the west.
This space that becomes available often provides insights, energy and strength.
In order to keep your energy flowing properly, we offer an opening of the day every morning through movement or meditation.
For this trip this will be provided by Michelle van Coevorden. She will open the space in the early mornings with a morning meditation in the rising sun followed by moving with the desert spirit “from Tai ~ Chi to Yoga to Dancing with the wind”. She will also give a Blue Lotus tea ceremony under the stars. This mystical plant played an important role in the culture of the ancient Egyptians.
In addition, Maxine Vogt travels with us, she supports people to fully stand for who they really are. This is said in her daily life through her symbols and the corresponding development path (www.iseejah.love).
Her presence on this journey will therefore be dominated by the symbols. She can provide insights and tools that can help you get to your core.
The aim is to investigate silently, but also with each other as a mirror, what we have to do as individuals in this life. To sharpen our own talents and powers, so that we can come home to our highest potential ego.
Eid’s team are our guides during the trip. Each trip a team is composed of the different members of the Muzeina tribe. This team takes care of us, the food, the animals and everything we need. By bringing different members of the Muzeina tribe with her each time, Eid ensures that different families can reap the benefits of these desert trips. The whole Sinai desert is all history and with every step you make you feel how solid the ground is under your feet.
Every day there are places where we will travel on the camel, where we set up camp and immerse ourselves in the flow of the desert.
After breakfast on the sixth night, we will depart by jeep back to the coast of Nuweiba.
We spend the night there at the Livethebedouinlife Camp. This is a beautiful private beach in Nuweiba. Here you share a thatched beach house on the Gulf of Aqaba. The beach has wifi and sanitary facilities and here you are only with the group and in the atmosphere of the Bedouin.
This is how we slowly prepare for the return journey.
You are unique and free.
When you want to be alone there is the desert, when you want to be together or share the campfire with good company.
You are cordially invited!
This trip is accompanied by three Dutch-speaking guides, Debra (Livethebedouinlife), Michelle van Coevorden (Mahara) and Maxine Vogt (Iseejah). Together with the Bedouins they save the space and energy for the group in the desert.
Just before departure (October 2020) there is an introductory evening in the Mahara. On this evening we meet so you know who you are traveling with and there is additional information about the desert trip.

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.
For this trip we recommend the flight

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 day. If you find it cold quickly, bring a pair of warm socks. Some parts of the trip you will have to guide your camel over the mountains on foot, 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.
