For those of you who are a little nervous, you might want to try a brief ride on a camel on your hotel beach first - this is possible at many resorts including the four star Al Nada Resort, 20km south of the airport.The park is surprisingly rich in wildlife and vegetation and also historic sites dating back to before the Roman era

Another alternative for the more nervous available on some camel safaris such as that in the Wadi El Gemal National Park is the option of a camel-pulled wagon which will take you safely through the wadis and sand dunes stopping off so you can see the wildlife or so that you can taste the local food such as bread baked on a fire in the sand or camel cheese
