It is an Egyptian-led Community of busy and intellectually-motivated people from all over the world who have traveled or intersted in travelling in the Middle-east. Safarists here are from all sorts of professional backgrounds, and are almost split in half between girls and guys. SaharaSafaris (and this website) is non-commercial, but uses commercial services sometimes. 'Co-operative' safaris are organized by members, sometimes publicly for the Community, but mainly for their family and friends.

See on-going discussion on the Forum.

If you see a sticker on an offroading 4x4 with a Nubian Ibex, on the backpack of a hiker up the Sinai High Wadis, or outside a lecture hall or a cultural event, you and your friends are welcome to join. It might be interesting also to know how people act within the Community.

What is SaharaSafaris Forum?

A message board (YahooGroups) on which discussions have been going on since 2001. The messages discuss:

  • routes for 4x4ing, hikes and related logistics, gear and 4x4s equipment;
  • area's archeology, wildlife, and wisdom of non-city people;
  • stories of experiences which could be spiritual, exotic, scientific, or physical; and
  • photos of trips to be shared and used in all the articles above.

There are few Guidelines for SaharaSafaris Discussion Forum though and you can read them here.
