“Somewhere over the rainbow“… you may catch up the twilight hour and enjoy a marvelous hiking day.
Getting started every Thursday with our 4×4 cars to the canyon and waterfall of Satout in Wadi El Gemal. The Wadi is one of the most interesting areas in Egypt because of its many ecosystems and archeological sites.
Today we are following the “Blue bird“ maybe accompanied by various other animals.. The National Park is alive – means inhabited by mammals (sheep and barbary sheep), reptiles, birds and the largest population of Dorcas gazelles in the Eastern desert.
Relax your feet and start dreaming of new adventures.
As you know: Not all those who wander are lost!
What to expect?
From the park entrance we will have around 130 kms drive through Wadi el Gemal to reach our starting spot; nearly halfway we have a stop over at the roman ruins of Appollonia.
From Wadi Sartout we will start up to hike through the canyon to the base of the waterfall of Sartout. A lake is waiting at the bottom of the canyon. As animals are as thirsty as human beings we might come across their way as they are looking for water.
As the area of Wadi el Gemal is one of the driest places on earth, sometimes it takes some 14 years time between 2 rains, so the lakes could be differently filled depending on the last rain in that area.
On our way back, a drive of nearly 70 km will bring us to Abu Ghossoum and to the coastal road. As the Red Sea in that region is skirted by a lovely road that allows you to visit unpolluted bays, mangrove thickets and Bedouin villages, you may just get some more impressions on your way home.
