Egypt White desert tours
Most white desert tours tend to go late in the afternoon, as the sky turns orange, and when the orange sunlight reflects on the white sand, the color looks spectacular, you’ll be mesmerized by it. Once the sun start setting, the white desert tour guide will start setting up camp, by un loading the tent from the roof of the vehicle, setting it up and then laying down carpets into the tent, and later during night fall the tour guide will prepare special Arabian coffee just before dinner, which is extra sweet and may taste unusual to most westerners. Once dinner has been consumed, the white desert tour guides will see to it that you are not bored; they will sing and dance till midnight. If you’re lucky enough to camp under a full moon, you’ll get to see how the white sand glows in the dark, when the moon’s light reflects on it.
