'ROCKART' SAFARI

GALLERY

 

This 3-day safari combines nature, archaeological sites that date from pre-dynastic till roman times, and hiking in the desert. You will be guided along sites in the southern Eastern Desert that are rich in rockart.

Day 1: After pickup from your hotel you will travel along the Quser-Quft road till the ancient caravan station and quarries of Hammamat (ca 130km). Pre-pharaonic and pharaonic petrogliphs give testimony of the many travelers and expeditions that visited this place in ancient times. From here 4WD jeeps will take you into the desert to a roman caravan station where you will have lunch and afterwards continue to the base camp. A hike among sand dunes will highlight the sunset.

Day 2: After breakfast you will visit several petrogliph sites by jeep. A two till three hour hike will take you to the lunch site. During the afternoon various additional petrogliph sites, ancient tombs and a well will be visited.

Day 3: During the morning the jeeps will take you along interesting ancient sites along the old caravan route. After lunch you’ll  return to the coast, where you will arrive late afternoon.
