Hop on a 4 wheel drive to the amazing White Desert as the white “sand” looks like snow transforming the hot desert landscape to one that resembles the cold Arctic. You will be impressed by the neighboring Black Desert where volcanic hills have colored the desert landscape black thus giving the desert its name. Enjoy lunch before heading back to Cairo
