How To Go To Farafra Oasis

There are Upper Egypt Bus Co buses from Farafra to Cairo (E£185, eight to 10 hours) via Bahariya (E£165, three hours) at 10 am and 10 pm.

Buses from Farafra to Dakhla (E£185, four hours) originate in Cairo and leave around 2 pm to 3 pm and around 2 am.

Tickets are bought from the conductor. Buses stop across from Al-Abey restaurant and at the petrol station.

Microbuses to Dakhla (E£20, three to four hours) and Bahariya (E£20, three hours) leave from the town’s main intersection when full (not often), so you’re better off going early in the morning.

Rare servees to Dakhla cost E£20, to Al-Kharga E£30.
