A Note on Tra­vel Security

The desert areas west of the Nile  from Siwa in the northwest to Kha­ri­jah Oases in Middle Egypt  have remai­ned untou­ched by the effects of the revo­lu­tion in Egypt. And from the per­spec­tive of pro­fes­sio­nal tour ope­ra­tor, there are no rea­son to sus­pend any tours in these areas as long as its gui­ded and appro­ved by the Egyp­tian aut­ho­ri­ties. This assess­ment applies in our opi­nion, also for tra­vel to remote areas of the  The Sahara , with the excep­tion of the Gilf el -Kebir as long as a posi­tive assess­ment of the situa­tion by the Egyp­tian aut­ho­ri­ties and our staff is pre­sent on site.

We don't recom­mend howe­ver any inde­pen­dently and non gui­ded tours outs­ide of the oasis town. Also even pro­fes­sio­nally plan­ned tours may suf­fer urgent chan­ges in rou­tes and time tables accor­ding to short notice advice by Egyp­tian Aut­ho­ri­ties.
