A day in the life of a Bedouin

My Bedouin trip was a memorable experience to spend a day in the desert. My excursion started with a camel ride in the Sinai desert late in the afternoon.

Camel ride in the desert

We enjoyed the desert scenery and at sunset we got to the top of a mountain and saw the most amazing sunset in the desert with spectacular colours at dusk. 


After a tour of the desert we got to the tent where the people living there were preparing a meal for us. I also tried baking a Bedouin bread by the campfire and after getting it wrong a couple of times, I finally managed to bake a perfect one.

After dinner dance


We had some shisha and after dinner we danced to the Bedouin drums. The entertainment continued till it got pitch black dark after which we were taken further into the desert to a secluded and extremely isolated area where there was a guide with enormous telescopes waiting for us.

The guide was very informative and we got to see a galaxy of stars, some planets and so many shooting stars. I got to learn a lot about the stars and the whole experience was so amazing and knowledgeable.

I highly recommend spending a day with the Bedouin tribe if you are in Sharm el sheikh.
