Wadi el Gemal National Park
Wadi al Gemal („Valley of the Camels“ in Arabic)is one of the largest valleys in the region between the Nile and the Red Sea. This region is distinguished by its very special environments, which are home to a great variety of flora and fauna. Nevertheless – in our days it is still very little known.
Come to explore with us for 1 day – and – by the way – hiking is one of the greatest things you can do for your physical and mental health.
And in this region it is also a great reminder that this world in which we live is pretty amazing.
What to expect:
Pick-up at your hotel and drive with 4x4 cars to the Protected National Park
After 6 Km jeep drive from the entrance we reach a small info-center called Bayt El Ababda, built to preserve the cultural heritage of a Bedouin tribe called Ababda. They still live as shepherds, camel breeders, fishermen and guides in Wadi El Gemal and preserve their ancient traditons and customs.
And now its time to walk! Either you start hiking immediatly or you continue another 2 kms in our jeeps till everybody has to get out into pure nature. The park boasts some of the richest flora in the Arabian Desert, over 140 species of plants and bushes that characterize its diverse ecosystems: the coastal belt, the mouth of the Wadi, the coastal plain and the large valleys.
The vegetation in the Wadi differs quite a lot and is characterized by the large quantity of acacia and desert date trees.
Get your track off the beaten path and enjoy untouched special nature.
Meeting-point after the hike will be a place called Khab al Khawara. Let’s boost your energy now – it is lunch-time – you deserve a sumptuous break!
On our way back we will have a small stop at Abu El Dabbaa for a last photoshooting before we are heading back (around 35 km to the entrance, finally back to your hotel)
