"I was very impressed by the company and the care you offer. I felt very safe and my bedouin guide Suleiman was everything I could have wanted: kind, caring, quiet and attentive."
Solo retreat - 40 days and nights in South Sinai
Whether you are seeking a solo venture or an amazing experience for families and friends, Wind Sand & Stars has the expertise to arrange a journey tailored exactly to you and your group’s needs. We cater for all ages, interests and levels of fitness.
We travel with our friends in the local communities, which means we can organise activities no other company can – camel treks through beautiful and remote sandstone valleys, walks along hidden mountain paths, and visits to ancient historical sites. Evenings around the camp fire under a magnificent starlit sky, nights under canvas or in traditional lodges, all of these combine to create a truly memorable experience.

“So many thoughts about our wonderful trip to St Catherine; the fantastic warmth of welcome from the Egyptians, Fathers Justin and Nilus, and the unique history which we felt privileged to be given access to. In my book, how could one not enjoy and be inspired!”
Julia Palmer, St Catherine Retreat, February 2017
“A great experience altogether and I am grateful to all the organisers, to the guides and drivers, to all the staff at guesthouse and hotels, to the Bedouin we visited; all contributed to a perfect trip. “
Verena Watson, Tailor Made Desert Journey, April 2016
“Huge thanks to all at Wind, Sand & Stars for an amazing trip. John’s passion for Ethiopia fires his erudition and he gave us more insights into the country, past and present, than we could ever have gained from local guides.”
Christine Dunmow, Exploring Ethiopia’s Orthodox History with John Binns 2016
“I am hugely impressed with Wind Sand & Stars’ organisation and their relationship with the Bedouin family who looked after us. These local contacts made the experience especially rich.”
