Upon arrival “around 11.30 am” we will change the vehicle by 4× 4 safari car and meet our local Bedouin guide who leads us to the main attractions of the desert starting with the Sand Dunes area where you will stop to take some photos above one of the Dunes which its height can reach up to 50 meters, then we will continue our way until we stop in the black desert territory where you will see a sandy mountain covered with black stones and minerals like coal and iron, it's called "El Marcos Mountain". we will take some photos of the area which was created by the actions of the volcanoes which are dating back to the prehistoric period, afternoon we will continue our way to "El Haiz village" where we will have lunch and take some rest. "also you can buy some Bedouin handmade style souvenirs". Then “around 2.30 pm” we will get back to the vehicle to witness the el "Agabat" area which consists of limestone hills and magnificent sculptures. Its name means "obstacles" as in ancient times it took 3 days to cross this area by camel Before the sunset we will head to the White Desert. Upon entering the area you will feel that you are walking on the moon's surface as you will see the white sand looks like snow and the different limestone rocks all over the area resembling a variety of Human heads, chicken and Mushrooms shapes, and plants forms. they were created by the act of the harsh wind in this area. You will stay in the area for a while to capture some photos and watch the sunset. The surface's colour of the area is changing with the change of the light of the day time from orange to pink to purple and during the moonlight time you will feel that you are standing in a snowy area as the scenery of white sand is so similar to the snow within this time. We will take some photos around sunset time. Then we will get back to the Black Desert for camping. On our way back to the black desert we will stop at the place of Crystal Mountain where you will see the mountain consisting of stones looking like glass and you will find mysterious inscriptions that are worth taking some photos of it.

Then we will camp overnight at the White Desert While the Bedouins prepare the Barbeque dinner, you will sit on an open-air pavilion around a fire circle watching the magnificent scenery of the sky full of stars, observing the shooting stars and smoking hookah if you want.
