if you go from nweba3, you need 4x4 car, if you go from dahab, you will go to Blue Hole, then take camel to Ras abu galum, then car to blue lagoon. the car rent from nweba3 300 LE, camel from blue hole 50, and the car from abu galum to blue lagoon around 40. dont expect much service, and beware of drugs use, but also there is amazing kite surfing and wind surfing inside the camp.
Basata is simply the first ecolodge in Egypt with true credentials for the 'eco' label. It's the most famous of this category in Egypt for Egyptians and international travellers alike with its own special beach and very immersive community experience.

Prices for residents in Egypt are different from travellers with no-residence visa in Egypt. Also, there are special prices for single-women.
For Foreigners with no residence in Egypt
The most internationally award-winning lodge in Egypt. Expensive in taste and located in the furthest oasis of Western Desert and closest to elGilf elKabir with nearby airport.
Perhaps this is the most popular 'ecolodge' for Hollywood stars, European royalties and internationally recognized personalities looking for a secluded sanctuary that's both in the middle of great cultural and natural heritage furthest from sophisticated civilisation but with internationally appreciated taste for good service and accessibility.
