Now Connecting Sinai
2011 saw more than just political revolution in Egypt.
In October the same year, the Bedouin Bus commenced operations by providing an alternative option by which independent travellers could explore the often overlooked St Catherine’s protectorate.
Despite being one of Egypt’s most scenic and historic regions (not to mention a Mecca for hiking and other adventurous activities), the limited transport options have previously meant that visitors must join an organised tour or package to reach the area.
