Camel trekking through South Sinai

We love to hear your stories from the desert and particularly enjoyed this account of a recent journey through South Sinai in March 2013:

“I travelled to Egypt with a group of people all loosely connected to the girl’s old school. We flew in to Sharm el-Sheikh on a Thomson’s plane full of package holidaymakers but were whisked away into the desert to camp out under the stars as soon as we arrived.

We were accompanied a British guide, as well as an Egyptian, who had worked together and travelled with the school group many times, so we benefited from both their great camaraderie and their experience.” Read the full blog.

“The whole trip was AMAZING – thank you so much.”

“We got more out of our little adventure than we had ever hoped for, thanks to a country of huge diversity and historical interest and to a very special guide.”

“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

“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.”
