On this 3000 km route we travel through one of the most remote desert parts of the world enjoying the variety of landscape formations, plus the astonishing prehistory rock art drawings. The landscape diverse between limestone bizarre formations, sand stone, sand dunes, volcanic craters, sand plains, depressions, plateaux, cliffs, mountains, all beautifully shaped by the strong dry desert wind, Some formations are unique of its kind as in the white desert, a desert without any similarity any where in the world! The inhabited part of this expedition includes Fayoum, Bahariya, Dakhla, and Siwa. In Fayoum we can wonder about the traces of an ancient sea and the remaining of the 40 million year old whale’s skeletons, while in Siwa we can observe a strong North African community still preserving its own ancient culture.
