Our Trip, Part Four: Wahat

Next we moved north to Wahat el Baharaiyah. Wahat means Oasis. There was also some great dessert sights.

Our tour guides were great. They were so friendly and hospitable. They took us out in 4x4s and showed us the sights.
First there was the black mountain.
Then Chrystal MountainPretty isn't it? The whole place is like that.

Next was the White Desert. This is where we spend the remainder of the day. It was gorgeous. This was my other favorite part!
The kids had fun climbing.

Dawood posing, It just might roll away.
This one they called the chicken.

Kids goofing it up.
They made a little seating area in the middle of the desert.
Starting a fire for cooking.
The desert sure makes you hungry.
Sunset on the White Desert.

They made a delicous dinner IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT! Grilled Chicken, rice and stewed potatoes & carrots. It was seriously good.
More Bedouin tea.
Then we all sat around the fire. it was so cozy!
It was a full moon or almost, I think. It was really a great day we'll remember forever.

  1. Looks like an amazing trip Mona. Thanks for adding the photos. The chicken looks like one to stay away from, lol. Your black mountain pic looks very similar to a picture I took on the South Island of New Zealand which is funny. Totally different terrain, yet the look of the pic - sooo similar.

  7. Mashaa Allaah that sounds and looks sooooo fun! All four parts of the trip! And soooooo "just what I need" :) I'd love to know how much something like that costs...Sokhna and Alex look real boring compared to your trip, lol! Time for a change! I know you said you got a hookup, but could you tell me (by email if you like) what the normal price is? Thanks!
