What is the purpose of this page ? We received many questions
safari trips prices, how they are calculated and
what is included and what is not. We thought of
explaining the basics of how the price is calculated,
aiming that our client can get a clearer idea.
Safari trip main cost
The main cost for any
safari trip is the
safari car, the standard car is a Toyota 4x4 land
The car price is around $170 per day in the
Western desert and $150
per day in Sinai.
Universal Projects Tourism owns and manage 4
safari Cars which is of course a privilege as
good quality service is guaranteed.
This price is fixed, it has nothing to do with number of
How many persons can 1 car take
? Maximum of 8 persons,
but for long trips, 5 persons is enough so that they
have a comfortable trip.
What about the guide ? Generally English speaking
guides cost is about $45 to $70 per day, the
price really depends on the language required, for
example Japanese guides are of course more expensive
than English speaking guides.
What about food? We offer you 3 meals per day, 2 cold meals
(Sandwiches) during the day, 1 hot meal at night.
Usually chicken is the main dish at night, as the desert
meat is not good at all, however if you don't like
chicken and desperate to eat meat we can buy it from
Cairo and sent it to you by Car !
Food price is about $7 per person per day.
Accommodation, hotel or
sleeping bags ? There are 3 ways to spend the
night in the
safari trip, first way is sleep IN the desert in
our sleeping bags (don't worry there is always a
mattress under the sleeping bag for your comfort).
Second way is to sleep in a camp, which is a
small place with little huts, it is not luxurious or
something, just a nice clean place to sleep and have a
shower. Third way is to sleep the night in a hotel,
there are more than 3 hotels in each Oasis, a hotel is
the best choice for someone who is looking for a
swimming pool and air-conditioning !
Prices : Desert sleeping in sleeping bags : $5 per
person per night
Camps : Average $15 per person per night.
Hotels: Average $50 per person per night.
Bathrooms, not a problem !
I am sure this is a big issue for
all of us, don't worry ! here how it works :
If you are sleeping in a hotel or camp, bathrooms are
available (Private in hotels and public in camps).
If you are sleeping in the desert, well you have all the
desert ! and showers are available in the hot springs
and the hot springs are available everywhere !
Anyway, we have a sort of "moving bath room"
which is a portable tent with a toilet and a shower, but
it is needed only in the long
safari trips (more than 10days in the desert).
