Getting to St. Catherine

BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT

public bus

 

 

 

 

microbus

Coming from Cairo, there is a bus leaving every day from Turgoman Station at 10h30. You can take this bus at the Suez station at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. You will arrive in Saint Catherine between 6 and 7 in the evening.

If you are on the red sea coast, there is a new minibus service between Dahab and St. Catherine and Nuweiba and St. Catherine. Check out the Bedouin Bus website for more details.

Bedouin Bus, connecting Sinai

In Saint Catherine, you only have to walk 3 minutes from the bus station to reach the camp. At the bus station, you go down the street in the direction of the mosque. At the mosque, you turn right to the main place and you continue straight on. 200 meters after the Co-op petrol station, you take the road on your right, and there is Bedouin Camp & Guesthouse.

BY PRIVATE TRANSPORT

If you prefer not to take public transportation, we can arrange a taxi, a microbus or a big bus for groups. The driver will take you from your hotel or from the airport to Saint Katherine, be it from Dahab, Nuweiba, Taba, Sharm el-Sheikh or Cairo.

BY AIR

The nearest airport to St. Catherine is the international airport of Sharm el-Sheikh. Give us a call and we can arrange to pick you up.

For all these services, please contact us by e-mail or telephone.

The capital of the Governorate of South Sinai is El Tur (1), although the biggest and most developed city is Sharm el Sheikh (2). Another popular destination is Dahab (3), a smaller and more laid back place, attracting mostly the independent traveller. In Nuweiba (4), the gateway to Jordan, and further north along the road until Taba (5), there are many quiet and laid-back camps offering simple huts right on the beach. The road beyond Taba leads to the only border crossing to Israel. In the center of the mountainous interior is the town of St. Katherine (6), famous for Mt. Sinai and the Monastery of St. Katherine. Wadi Feiran (7) and Serabit el Khadim (8) are smaller settlements with important historical and archeological sites. The coastal town of Abu Zenima (9) is a small place with a few shops and cafeterias from where transport can be organized to Serabit el Khadim. Ras Sudr (10), further to the north, is a sea-side destination popular with people from Cairo. To Suez and Cairo the road connects via a tunnel (11) under the Suez canal, and from here there is also a road going to North Sinai, and another, the ancient caravan route of pilgrims from Cairo to Mecca, cutting across the peninsula via the interior at Nakhla (12) and connecting to the Gulf of Aqaba.
