“so close to Gizah, but...”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Good location West Cairo, very convenient for Gizah and Saqqarah pyramids, and as a starting point for the Oases and Sudan, on your Cairo to Cape-Town expedition. You can set-up camp at the rear or rent one of the very basic bungalows. Good place to spread your stuff and sort-out any mechanical problems. Saïd, the very knowledgeable owner, is eager for contacts and can be of help in case of hassles; he speaks fluent English, French and German, and of course Arabic!
He appreciates "la bonne chère" and you're welcome to invite him to share an evening meal by the fireside. Excellent place to meet other long-haul travelers and exchange the latest tips about road and political conditions.
Unfortunately the place is a bit rundown, and could be improved tremendously. Vsit the Wassef Coptic carpet workshop newt door.
