CAIRO – 29 June 2017: There is no better opportunity to watch stars than a crystal clear summer sky and a cool night with the least light and minimal noise that Fayoum desert offers. The trip to the Fayoum, southwest of Cairo, desert starts Friday.

For L.E. 300 ( $20 for non-Egyptians), the trip will take place on June 30 and July 1.

The day and night are spent almost entirely outdoors so prepare for the experience; comfortable clothes, walking shoes, and basic camping snacks are optimum. A led LED light and a camera will make good companions too. It is time to get your camping gear out of the closet and give it a refreshing break!.
