Imagine the old city located in the heart of the desert, surrounded by mountains, 26 km from the town of Safaga, but at the moment empty and abandoned. There remained only the ruins of houses. Looking at this place, you feel that time has stopped here. Begin the journey into the past …
Transfer by minibus or jeep to the main safari base in Safaga (approximately 40 km). Then drive quads or jeeps 8 km to the City of Ghosts.
Transit road leads through the winding switchbacks through the mountains, where in the past there were railroad tracks built by the British.
The first point of the trip after arriving in Ghost Town is a visit to the phosphate mine. Tour of the mosque with the possibility of entry by a spiral staircase to the top of the turret, which was once the muezzin called the faithful to prayer (this place is a great vantage point to see the whole city).
One of the interesting stage is a visit to the old school with classes and laboratory, Egyptian workers housing and home of Lord English (built in marble).
The most exciting event during an expedition is quad or jeep ride through the city (about 15 minutes).
The return trip is scheduled to take a different path. You can see the source of water in the middle of the desert and valleys full of desert plants.
After returning to the main safari base, visitors can drink a delicious black tea or tea with hibiscus, water and a water pipe.
After the tour return to the hotel.
Trip takes place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays afternoons.
