4x4 Responsibly

نحن قادة رحلات السفارى المصريين

لضمان ألا نؤذى من نحب وألا ندمر ما يعجبنا ونحب الترحال اليه

ولضمان اننا نتعلم من تجاربنا لاستدامة هذه الرياضة

فإننا نعاهد الله وأنفسنا وبعضنا البعض وكل الركاب الآمنين معنا والأهالى الذين نزورهم

BMW X3

In a nutshell, The X3 is engineered for Ultimate On-Road Performance purpose. Its design requirements include speed, stability, comfort, and safety. This would position it as an on-road star. However, the same design considerations would be a shortcoming for off-road performance.

Ghoroud Samuel

"غرود صمويل" (بالانجليزى Ghoroud Samuel) هى مساحة من الأرض في الصحراء الغربية المصرية (جزء من الصحراء الكبرى شمال إفريقيا) والتى يكسو بعض أجزاء منها غرود (كثبان رملية) بين البحيرات والجبال. المنطقة تعد من أكثر المناطق تنوعا فى أنواع الغرود كما انها قريبة إلى القاهرة وتصلح لرحلة يوم واحد لأندية سيارات الوعر (الوعر= كلمة أوفرودينج 4×4 بالعربى).

El Baben Shal

Owned by the same owner of Adrere Amellal and Kenouz lodges; Mounir Neamatallah.

El baben shal is a luxurious expensive lodge, built on the same hill of the old town of shaly. And as you can see some rooms have the hill as one of its walls!

Excellent food and service and a very nice terrace overlooking the archaic town of shali.

A very convenient located lodge for the tired traveller going through El Bahariya oasis. However, this is a very unimaginative location. Just a normal building overlooking a part of the 'downtown' of Bawiti and which is not really set to be a good scene.

Adrere Amellal

One of the first ever private ecolodges in Egypt built in Siwa to express the beauty of nature with no electricity and with all the possible grandiose of Siwan native architecture.

 

It's a very expensive place but the level of details in architecture and service is royal.
