Desert safari

The desert is very different from the high mountains but just as stunning. It can be easily visited on your way to or from St. Catherine. We can organize jeep, camel or walking safaris which can last from one day to several days. Desert safaris can be combined with mountain treks - see our combo section. Possibilities are endless and we can tailor-make any special program if needed.
