Getting Around

Situated not far from St. Catherine’s monastery and Mount Sinai, and with the tranquility and wilderness of the desert close by, Dahab is an ideal place from which to explore the Sinai region. Excursions can be organized through us, with a little help from the hospitable Bedouin tribes of the area, to explore this historically fascinating and richly diverse region.
