With so much outstanding natural and man-made scenery to explore and such a welcoming climate, camping is a great way to see Egypt on your own.
You can spend your nights beneath the starlit skies of the Western Desert and then explore its lush oases : the Bahariya, the Farafra and the Dakhla, during the day. Or, if you're a die-hard explorer, you can brave the remote, rippling sandscapes of Great Sand Sea with its cool nights and spectacular views. The Nile is also a good place to pitch your tent in the shadows of the Pyramids.
Make sure you're fully stocked up on all the essentials, especially water.
