The only Camel Riding School in Nuweiba
offers a unique opportunity to spend your holiday doing something completely
In a sparse
environment, the desert of Sinai, in a beautiful location on the beach,
overlooking the Gulf of Aqaba local Bedouin will teach you about the
camel and its nature.
camel is the main source of survival of nomadic people in a hostile
desert environment over centuries. Our aim is not only to provide the
best firsthand knowledge about this interesting animal but you are also
offered to learn about herbal medicine, flora and fauna and not at last
about Bedouin way of life and survival in a wilderness that has not
much to offer and yet is so surprisingly rich.
Course lasts for 3 days and is recommended for groups with
interest in camels as wel as the fast vanishing culture of the Bedouins
in south Sinai
camel treks are focusing on the element of Bedouin way of life and
survival. Under the supervision of your Bedouin leader you will learn
to care for your own camel, feeding, riding, loading it yourself . Bedouins
will show you techniques of collecting wood and preparing delicious
food on campfires without using amounts of natural resources. You will
discover where and how to find water, how to protect yourself against
the heat during the day or the cold windy nights in winter or shelter
against one of the rare flashfloods.
There is only a slight possibility of observing wildlife, yet the Bedouins
will tell you about the clever desert fox and the gazelles once abandoned
and now very rare. You can listen to stories about the more dangerous
desert species: snakes and scorpions and how Bedouins take precautions
against poisonous bites and how they cure themselves.
At a first look desert vegetation looks very sparse and yet the Sinai
desert is known for its many medical plants. Soon you will be able to
distinguish between the main herbal plants along your track and know
which illness they are supposed to heal efficiently.
All our treks let
you experience the real meaning of "beyond time and space".
No need for your watch, the sun will wake you up. No concrete boundaries
limit your sight just incredibly magnificent mountains of always changing
colors and shapes.
