Exploring Beyond

Only In St.Catherine

In the heart of Egypt’s serene landscape lies St. Catherine, a locale not solely unique for its breathtaking scenery but also for the enriching cultural immersion it offers. A visit to St. Catherine transcends typical travel experiences, especially when it involves the warm hospitality of the local Bedouin communities.

As twilight descends over the rugged mountains, a traditional gathering around a crackling open fire becomes an almost mystical experience. Whether nestled in the sandy expanses of the desert or in the quaint garden of the Bedouin Camp & Guesthouse, each setting casts its own enchanting spell. Here, under the canopy of stars, you are invited to partake in an authentic Bedouin feast. The spread ranges from simple, yet flavorful, local fare to more robust, hearty dishes, all accompanied by an endless flow of aromatic teas, rich coffees, and herbal infusions that tantalize the senses.

A mere stone’s throw from St. Catherine, the Blue Desert awaits, its vast open plains punctuated by uniquely painted boulders—a whimsical touch added by a Belgian artist. As the sun dips below the horizon, painting the sky in hues of gold and crimson, a short car ride brings you to this captivating landscape. Here, amidst the serene beauty of nature, a campfire is kindled, heralding the beginning of an unforgettable evening.

As the fire flickers and dances, the air fills with the heady aroma of freshly brewed tea, coffee, and herbal concoctions, alongside the sizzle of a meal being lovingly prepared over open flames. The highlight of the evening is the vibrant Bedouin party, resounding with the melodious strums of traditional Simsymia or Uud music. This soulful celebration, rich in cultural heritage, stretches into the night, offering a unique window into the heart of Bedouin life and traditions.

St. Catherine’s allure lies not just in its natural beauty or historical significance, but in these intimate, shared moments that connect you to the land and its people. It’s an experience that transcends the ordinary, offering a glimpse into a way of life that has remained unchanged for centuries.
