Roadtrips in Africa: special for sure
Africa has a lot to offer. Explore it by car to see it all.
Western Desert, Egypt |
When you are looking for a desert road trip, Egypt is the place to be. Four oases form a perfect touring circuit, beginning with Bahariya south-west of Cairo, and continuing in a counter-clockwise loop, through Farafra, Dakhla, and Kharga, before returning once again to the Nile Valley between Assiut and Luxor. A sixteen hour drive along a decent road brings the traveler from stop to stop, with plenty to do and see along the way. With precious little traffic on the road, and with great views all around, the trip provides a wonderful experience.
