A diving safari that’s unique to Dahab is travelling to untouched dive sites by camel! Much of the coastline here is inaccessible to off road vehicles and the only way to reach the dive sites there is by camel or boat. Travelling by Camel is a very popular way to experience a sense of being in the Sinai. These docile animals are able to carry both you, your dive gear including tanks and food and water! The two most popular and enjoyable camel safaris are to Ras Abu Gallum and to Gabr El Bint.
For some people the thought of a camel safari fulfils all those fantasies of Lawrence of Arabia, desert nights spent under a blanket of stars. A camel safari is the ideal way to experience diving little dived sites and experiencing just a little piece of Bedouin nomadic life. The journey to Ras Abu Gallum begins early to take full advantage of the cool morning air on the hour ride to the first dive site.
Your camel will carry all your dive kit, personal baggage and food and drink. You will be accompanied not only by an experienced dive guide but a Bedouin safari guide who will cook for you over a real fire, and provide you with not only an authentic insight into his culture but an endless supply of Bedouin tea!
If you are on a 2 day safari you will either sleep under the stars in the summer months taking advantage of the cooling breezes that blow in off the Gulf or sleep in one of the husha huts in the winter months, when due to the desert climate the nights can get a little chilly
We can run camel safaris to Ras Abu Gallum for as few as 2 people up to larger groups if you want a different experience for your dive club whilst in Dahab. All safari prices are charged by the day and include food and drink, 4 guided dives and an upgrade price for those on dive package is available.
