Departure from Cairo at Night
Arrival to the Oasis, check in hotel (Siwa Taghaghien Island Resort): We will visit Cleopatra Spring (a stone pool fed by a natural spring, said to have been a haunt of Cleaopatra the VII’s during her visit to Siwa), and finally go on a city tour of the old town Shali.
After breakfast, enjoy a visit to the Fortress of Shali, a 13th-century mud-brick fortress. Then we will sojourn to the Alexander Temple at Aghumi Village, a temple from the 26th Dynasty (664-525 BCE) which is dedicated to the God Amon, which is next to the Amun Ra Temple at Um Ubeyda. After enjoying a riposo at the Cleopatra Spring with refreshments, we will then get to visit the Mountain of the Dead (Gebel el Mauta). Finally, we will visit Siwa House Museum before watching the sunset at Fatnas Island, then return to our hotel for dinner.
First, breakfast at the hotel. We will start our journey into the Great Sand Sea, and cross the desert dunes until we arrive at any paleontologist’s dream– an area rich in fossils and coral reefs that date to the Cambrian era. We will then drive to Bir Wahed (system of springs and a freshwater lake) in the middle of the desert and possibly catch the flamingos enjoying a bath. We will return to the hotel around sunset.
After breakfast in our hotel, we will then drive back to Cairo, thus concluding our Siwa adventure.
