Discover the Silence!
Situated between Baharia and Farafra you find the White Desert . “Discovered” by a Swiss guy in the eighties, it has become one of the
most famous places in the desert of Egypt. Since 2006 it is an officially “protected area”. Like ice blocks in an ocean the white rocks
suddenly rise out of the sand. Within thousands of years the wind and the sand have formed marvellous sculptures of white chalk stone.
Here you can step out of the “real world” and leave yourself to fantasy. Relax your mind by watching the sculptures in the changing light of the day.
Take a few days time to explore this place by driving or walking. Make a journey through times by collecting stones, shells and
petrified plants. Try to imagine how this places might have looked, when it was no desert but an an ocean or a big garden.
Catch the spirit of the universe by watching the clear sky and the
Milky Way in the night. Or take a night walk under the full moon , who’s light shines so bright, you don’t even need a torch lamp.
On the way to the White Desert you cross a lot of beautiful landscapes. The sand dunes of Abu Moharreg and Kerawin, Crystal
Mountain, Wadis, big rocks of Al Agabat and the Magic Spring.
Southwest from Dakhla you find the Gilf Kebir. You can visit the swimmer in the desert and other caves with prehistoric paintings. Then
take a ride through the Big Sandsea and go till Siwa.
Nowhere else in the Sahara you find such a lot of different shaped
landscapes on a relatively small area as you do here in the “Sahara gharbiyya”, the Western Desert of Egypt..
