Travel through miles and miles of golden dunes. See uncanny rock formations and rest at precious oases- take a safari into the Western Desert. The Western Desert is 262, 000 square miles of dunes, canyons, oases, mountainous plateaus, and valleys that span most of land west of the Nile Valley. Once you reach the White Desert, sand and black rocks give way to the awe inspiring sight of a magical landscape full of strange limestone concretions that are shaped like giant mushrooms, fjords and icebergs.  Quench your thirst at any of the five oases. Do not miss a chance to see what inspired the religion of the Ancient Egyptians; unravel a layer of the mystery- tour the desert.
