Many years ago Wind Sand & Stars fell in love with Sinai and its people. Working closely with the Bedouin tribes we have developed strong partnerships and made life-long friends.
Wind Sand & Stars is proud to be part of the Wilderness Expertise group that incorporates two other brands, Wilderness Expertise and Inspire Worldwide, who offer high quality experiences for school groups that develop an awareness of our world, its people and cultures, and ourselves.
