Fancy an inventive way to spend your Eid break? How does trekking through the Sinai peninsula on a bus full of bedouins sound? Read more here…
If you fancy ditching the fashion victims at Egypt's nouveau riche hot spots this Eid - then why not hop on a bus full of Bedouins?
The Bedouin Bus is a not-for-profit firm designed to ferry you around Egypt's (arguably) most interesting region in a safe and reliable fashion. The company, founded in 2011 by local Bedouin tribes from Dahab, Nuweiba and St. Catherine, aims to raise awareness about the beauty of the Sinai region.
Bedouin Bus aims to fill a gap in the South Sinai region, notoriously poorly served by traditional transport firms. The company operates various routes between Dahab, St. Catherine and Nuweiba.
All drivers are locals who know every bump and turn in the road, so they are guaranteed to get you to your destination quickly and safely.
Buses operate between Dahab and St Catherine on Tuesday and Friday, while vehicles cover the route between St Catherine and Nuweiba on Wednesday and Saturday.
Tickets cost a mere 50 EGP on all routes. And best of all - all future proceeds are invested in local community projects in South Sinai.
So ditch the other beach spots this Eid and hot foot it across Sinai on your very own Bedouin Bus.
