From Luxor to Bahariya

We want to travel from Luxor tot Bahariya at the beginning of March 2013. Is there a bus or do we have to take private taxi? Or do we have to go first to Asyun and take a car with private driver or taxi from there? We are 1 week in Egypt so there is not so much time. We want to see the white and black desert.

Simplest - and probably cheapest - would be to go to Cairo and take an overnight trip to Bahariya oasis and the White Desert from there.

This has been done by other contributors - type "White desert" into the Search Box (near the top of this page) to learn more.

You can do it from Luxor but you have to go through kharga oasis, Dakhla oasis , farfra oasis then white desert and bahariya oasis then Cairo it will be better to Stay overnight in each place to visit it and get rest too then from bahariya you can drive to Cairo I can send you a day by day program to see what you go to see in each place

Since you are staying only one week in Egypt then I advise you to forget about visiting Bahariya from Luxor. It is not doable in less than 3 days. You need 2 LONG days alone for the transfers and one day to explore the White and Black Deserts.

hi Frieda , you'll stay all the week in luxor , or go to another destination , if you'll stay at luxor just you can make on night to kharga for visit some places but not include whit desert because white desert in bahariya near from Cairo , i have a good idea to do it , fly from luxor to Cairo at morning then car from Cairo airport to bahariya , spend one night there and back to Cairo , fly again or by sleeping train to luxor

have a nice trip
