Are you ready for Easter travel?

published on 2012/03/13

This upcoming extended Easter vacation will prove as a boon to Siwa. A lot of people are going. If you have never been to Siwa, here’s a list of things to pack:

  • Swimwear (to swim in the various water springs).
  • Sandals.
  • Warm clothes (it is cool in the evening).
  • Sunscreen.
  • Toilet wipes (there is no toilet in the desert if you choose to camp there).
  • Sunglasses.
  • Sleeping bag (if you have one).
  • Long sleeves so you don’t get sunburn.
  • Hat.
  • Phone.
  • Shoes.
  • Mosquito repellent. You will not encounter mosquito in the middle of the desert but depending on where you stay in Siwa town, you might encounter these annoying creatures.
  • Camera.
  • Some amount of cash. There is single or two ATM in Siwa and with this high season, it might run out of cash.
  • Bring your passport. The Great Sand Sea is part of a national park and to enter it, you will need to get a permit. This we will arrange in Siwa, we just need your passport.
  • If you drink alcohol, bring your supply from Cairo. They are almost impossible to get in Siwa. Siwawi provides water and other non alcoholic beverages for the desert trip.

We offer amazing excursions for small and large groups all inclusive (transport from and to Cairo/Airport, lodging, food and desert safari included)
