2. Is it safe staying in came with kids and family?

Thanks & Regards,

1. Re: White dersert (Bahareya Oasis)

As you are based in Cairo it will be easy for you to confirm that camping in the deserts is currently banned, for safety /security reasons.

The end of May will be after Ramadan which is scheduled to end 12/13 May!

I certainly wouldn’t be taking kids into the desert when it’s not allowed!
