You can book a trip into the desert by jeep or camel at any time. We arrange desert trips either along the coast or inland and if you so wish, we can organise overnight accommodation.
Safaris always offer a mixture of culture, nature, religion and adventure. Our programme of activities include desert safaris, canyon trekking, overnight accommodation in a tent or in Bedouin camps, wadi trekking, camel ride and, of course, diving. Your luggage can be stored in the hotel during the safari.
During the safari, native Bedouins will prepare simple, but nutritious meals over a campfire. A desert safari is one of the last great adventures of our time. The route that you take will ensure that you come away with a deeper understanding of the origins of oriental culture and with having seen amazing views of the varied landscape. These desert treks should never be undertaken alone, but always with professional guides. Also, please take special care to respect the inhabitants of the oasis and be sure not to abuse their renowned hospitality.
The INMO Team will organise camel and jeep safaris lasting one day or more into the deserts of Sinai. These can be booked directly at the hotel.
Oasis Ain Hudra
A spectacular trip to a large oasis deep in the desert on the way to the St. Catherine's monastery. It is only accessible by a 4x4 jeep and the journey involves 1 hour on a tarmac road, 2 to 3 hours on difficult sand tracks and allows for around two hours to enjoy the oasis. The return journey is routed through a different valley.
1 hour by taxi, 1 hour by camel, a 1h 30 min. climb to the Canyon, one to three hours break in the Hudra oasis, half an hour by camel to another valley, 20 minutes on foot and finally one hour by camel back to the taxi.
A day trip by taxi / jeep, two hours travel, stay in the coloured Canyon for approximately two hours.
Wadi Kid / Wadi Nasseb
A one or two day trip into one of the Bedouin inhabited oases. 30 minutes by tarmac road, two hours by jeep, one hour hike and then a two hour or overnight stay.
St. Catherine monastery & Moses mountain
Taxi to the monastery - open 9am to 12pm, except Fridays 11am to 12pm. Closed Sundays and all Orthodox holidays.
Hikes up Moses’ mountain are possible. It is an arduous three hour ascent either along the camel path or by going up 6666 steps. In order to arrive punctually for the sunrise, the ascent is also possible at night. However, strictly by torchlight only.
Camel Safari to the ruins of the Nawamis Graves
One hour by taxi, meet the Bedouins there, saddle up the camels, and then ride for approximately 2 hr. 30 mins. through the Sinai desert and mountains. Stay at the Nawamis ruins for approximately two hours. Have a small snack, with freshly baked bread, cheese, tuna salad and Bedouin tea. Follow more or less the same route back on the "desert ship".
National park Nabq
The Nabq National Park is located 35 km north of Sharm el Sheikh.
The area covers more than 600 km. squared. This unique landscape contains 134 different plant species, a variety of mammals such as gazelle and ibex, as well as numerous reptiles and insects. Both the large amount of mangroves at the Gulf of Aqaba and the dune landscape at the Wadi Kid are remarkable. Snorkelling is possible. Day trips are possible by jeep.
Half day jeep or camel tours to the oasis in the mountains (5 km. south of Dahab). Small lunch (fresh Bedouin bread with cheese and tomato salad).
