Wilderness Ventures Egypt: collaborating with the people of Egypt

We specialize in cultural tours and adventure holidays in Sinai and the Western Desert while working in partnership with a team of young guides in Cairo and some of the leading dive companies on the Red Sea Coast.

Sinai with Yalla Jabaleya

Trek in the Mountains of Sinai and discover peaks and gullies, hidden gardens, potent herbs, archaeological remains and a religious history.

Take lessons in camel riding with trained Bedouin teachers and explore the desert on camel back to discover authentic Bedouin culture and the stars.

Western Desert with Zarzora

Ponder the battlefield of El Alamein and follow the routes of the Long Range Desert Group through the Western Desert to Siwa, Uweinat and the Gilf Kebir.

Discover the thrill of driving across the sand dunes and experience the soft, beautiful, phantasmagoric landscape of the White Desert in moon light.

Cairo with El Azhari

Visit mosques, climb minarets, stroll through souqs, listen to local music, discover Cairo’s cafe life and explore remote pyramids along the Nile.

As graduates of El Azhar, our young guides are uniquely qualified to give an insight into Cairo, ancient, medieval and revolutionary.

Red Sea in Dahab or Sharm

Plunge into the water of the Red Sea and witness the startling colours and fascinating behaviour of one of the world’s most diverse marine ecosystems.

Beginners can take instruction in snorkelling or a PADI Open Water Dive Course while experienced divers can take daily shore or boat dives.

Groups are kept small to allow a proper relationship to develop between visitors and guides.

Programmes are arranged in a modular way so that large groups can disperse for the day and return together in the evening to share stories.

We respond to your interests, cultural or adventurous, and can design a programme just for you, prioritising wilderness expeditions, city exploration or reef and wreck diving.

Suitable for couples, groups, families, clubs or schools.

We can link our programmes to arrivals in either Cairo or Sharm el Sheikh.

This is culture and adventure tourism as it should be!
