Frequently asked questions about Touring Egypt White Desert

How far is the white desert from Cairo?

about 370 km

Located in the Farafra depression, a small section of Egypt’s vast the Western Desert, the White Desert is located about 370 km south-west of Cairo

Is it safe to travel to Egypt

Egypt is nearly crime-free; as Lonely Planet notes, “The incidence of crime, violent or otherwise, in Egypt is negligible compared with many Western countries, and you’re generally safe walking around day or night.”

Is there anything in the white desert?

Like the Great Sand Sea region, there are no actual locations in the White Desert. There’s actually even less to see here, as that region at least had a handful of bandits in it. There is absolutely no reason to come here unless you’re trying to defog the entire map.

Is the white desert safe?

The desert is about as safe as the rest of Egypt. Incidents can occur at any moment but generally are rare exceptions. So nothing that should reasonably hold you back from a trip.

Is Egypt Safe for Americans to Travel to

We get this question a lot at Bastet Travel In short, Americans and other visitors can rest easy: yes, Egypt is a safe country for tourists. And the rest of the world seems to agree — after years of middling numbers, tourism in Egypt is steadily rising towards its former highs, hosting over 9 million sightseers in 2018. The longer answer is worth exploring, though, and we have some assurances to offer all our clients who join us on all of our Egypt Travel Packages.

Do and do not in Egypt

Do respect the monuments archaeological sites are human heritage don’t touch scratch or sit on it. Do dress correctly whilst there is no specific dress code in the cities, women will feel more comfortable if they do not wear shorts or have their shoulders uncovered.

What do female tourists wear in Egypt

Pants, Capris, Leggings, and Shorts

Basically, as long as your knees are covered, you are good. So whether you choose pants or capris, you will feel comfortable and remain respectful. Local women wear long pants or skirts; however, I wore capris a couple of days with no issues.

What is the best time to visit Egypt

The best time to visit Egypt is from September through to April. Christmas, New Year and Easter are also very popular times to visit, so it’s wise to book early.

How many days are enough to visit Egypt

If you make the trek out to the Red Sea, plan to spend at least 2 full days there in order to get the most out of the journey. So if you tack on the Red Sea, that means you’ll be in Egypt for about 7-8 days total at least. Anywhere from 5-8 days is pretty typical for trips to Egypt, even all the way from North America.
