siwa - bacharriya
I have a question about the road between siwa and bacharriya. We have driven the road last summer and it wasn't that good. But we saw that they have ever worked on it to get the road better. Is there somebody who has driven the road this spring?? how was the road condition?? Still parts with soft sand??
Siwa -Bahariya road
Just saw your post now ,hope my answer is not late?
The road is still awful as it is , and still need to do the damn army permits , and you can't camp there . that said you must do it in one day ,and it is 400 k.m and average hours to cover it like 10 hours in a safe way (driving -riding )
i know some local guys from the oases , they do it like in 5 hours . many serious accidents happened there . due to the very bad road condition and the careless high speed .
still i love to do it again and again ,it is really good journey
make sure to get enough fuel as there is nothing there but military check points every like 80 k.m
Permission Siwa Bawiti
Is it true that is´t hard to get the Bawiti - Siwa permission (granted in Cairo)and it´s better to do the trip the other way around, as to say Siwa - Bawiti. To who we have to talk to get permits, the Egupt ambassy suggested Misr Travel in Cairo, are there any other suggestions ?
We´ll do the trip from Bawiti to Siwa on 13.04.2009 if permission is granted - 2 persons and a 4x4.
hope my reply is not late !
well on the 13th i will be heading from Alexandria to Siwa , will stay there 2 or 3 days then head to Bahariya oasis ,
you don't need any company to make your permits
