Getting Around Farafra Oasis

There are Upper Egypt Bus Co buses from Farafra to Cairo (E£125, eight to 10 hours) via Bahariya (E£95, three hours) at 10am and 10pm. Buses from Farafra to Dakhla (E£80, four hours) originate in Cairo and leave around 2pm to 3pm and around 2am. Tickets are bought from the conductor. Buses stop across from Al-Abeyt restaurant and at the petrol station.

Microbuses to Dakhla (E£75, three to four hours) and Bahariya (E£60, 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£60, to Al-Kharga E£90.
