White Desert - Review
The White Desert is, like the name betrays, a desert in Egypt which has multitudes of rock formations that rise up to the skies from the white surface of the desert floor. One can have some great fun, imagining weird and interesting shapes in the rock formations of the desert. The sunlight also changes the color of the dunes and plays quite a few tricks on the untrained eyes. The best way to enjoy the desert is either to visit it during the daytime and witness all the rock formations or just camp it out like a champ under the Egyptian sky, accompanied by Bedouin food and music.

White Desert, Farafra Reviews
The white desert is an amazing place to visit. No it is a must visit place at least once in a life time. This place was once the bottom of a deep ocean over 40 million years ago. There are the layers and aggregates of chalks and chalky limestone. That gives this place it's white appearance. Not only the landscape is greate But the night sky is one of the purest all over the world Because it has nearly zero light pollution. It's recommended to visit this place in winter or spring. And make sure that the moon is not full -new moon or crescent phases are recommended-
That's really a nice place to do camping in desert. The white sand is very smooth! However, it's a bit cold to do camping in December. There are a lot of white foxes at the night.
Fantastic natural nature I wish to go back again
Full moon,shooting star,foxes running near,landscape to beautiful (?). Must see! Going back to stay longer.
I booked by adventure through Golden Bird Tours who provided a personal guide/translator. Did the Black and slept in the newer section of the White. The limestone rock figures are amazing. Rabbit, chicken, turtle, faces, Crystal Mountain (quartz) mushroom City. The sunset & sunrise we're beautiful. The quiteness, stillness and the wildlife during the night was great.
