THIS TRIP IS FULLY BOOKED

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 29, 2020 WE MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP THROUGH THE SINAI DESERT!

We will travel by foot and camel through the desert with a group of women in the full moon period under the guidance of the Muzeina tribe who take good care of us in their authentic way. We eat and share around the fire and sleep under the stars.
This is a journey that offers you all the space you need to get in touch with nature and your true self.

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 get back to the essence of yourself. You will be well looked after throughout the journey, you can completely surrender to the rhythm of the desert and of the day and you can relax completely.

Eid Ali from the Muzeina tribe is our guide during the trip.
Every time he sets up a team from the members of the Muzeina tribe. His team takes care of us, the food, the animals and everything we need. By taking others along every time, he ensures that different families can reap the benefits of these desert journeys.

We travel about 10 to 15 kilometers per day by camel and foot and as much as possible in silence.
We visit various historical sites, such as the El Goudra oasis and the more than 5000-year-old stone domes of Nawamis. We climb over mountain tops and through valleys and walk deeper and deeper into the desert.
The area is wide and varied and you will not get bored.

The entire Sinai desert is all history and with every step you make you feel how solid the ground is under your feet.
In this time when everything is developing so fast, changing and constantly demanding adjustments, the total opposite is true in the desert. Your environment there is almost immobile, 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 share, there is the campfire with good company. But above all, you are FREE!

This trip is accompanied by Debora Hempel (Livethebedouinlife), Geke Dijkstra (coach) and Maxine Vogt (Iseejah).
In the first place, they monitor and preserve the space for the group in the desert.
In addition, their skills will be deployed where necessary during the journey.

Maxine supports people to fully stand for who they really are. She does this in her daily life through her symbols and the corresponding development path (www.iseejah.love).
Geke ( www.gekedijkstra.com ) is a well-known coach and ceremony leader who deals a lot with Ayahuasca medicine plant works. During this journey she will guide us, not with the plant but with the powerful desert as medicine.

Because that is it: the desert is a huge historical area where no house has been built and no road has been built in all these thousands of years. Nature in its full power, and you can feel it. Entering this desert with its original inhabitants, the Muzeina tribe and being carried by three very capable and powerful women will do something to you.
It will be a magical journey!

The last night we sleep in Livethebedouinlife Camp.
This is a beautiful private beach in Nuweiba. Here you share a thatched beach house on the Gulf of Aqaba.
The beach is fully equipped and here too you are well looked after, entirely in the atmosphere of the Bedouins.
You are cordially invited!

Just before departure (january) there is an introduction evening in the Mahara. On this evening we meet so that you know who you are traveling with and there is additional information about the desert trip.

Because we travel by camel, at least two long pants are handy to take with you. A sweater and long warm pants for the evenings, and some lighter clothing for the day.
If you find it cold quickly, bring a pair of warm socks.
Some parts of the journey you will have to accompany your camel on foot over the mountains, therefore shoes / slippers that you enjoy walking are indispensable for this journey.

We advise you to bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat.

Don’t forget something for on the head, a cloth, hat or cap. It is important to protect yourself properly while riding through the desert on your camel and for the sun in general.
Also don’t forget your sunscreen! A toothbrush, 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 opt for a flexible backpack, sports bag or soft suitcase.

The weather

The climate of february March still shows quite high temperatures, as the minimum is around 20 degrees and the peak reaches a value of 30 degrees. With about 10 hours of sunshine a day and a particularly small chance of precipitation, the weather forecast for march is calm, stable and favorable. Around this time it is very comfortable in Egypt.
In the nights it can still cool down considerably. Warm clothing is therefore a must.

Time difference

The time difference with Egypt and Sinai is 1 hour later (during the winter time there is time difference).

Vaccinations

Egypt and Sinai do not require vaccinations.

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 strengthen 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 the same from our travelers. It is – if applicable – easy to forget that we sometimes travel through very poor areas.
