Travel on the Stately desert Visit of oases Visit of oases
Completely can be to inspect oases with sufficient comfort, but do not expect to find there unusual restaurants or picturesque fires though you can meet groups of bedouins, sedentary round fires. In all oases hotels - from hotels with air conditioning to straw huts on the brink of the desert operate. The most part are as well operators of a safari, offering rounds on own oasis and in other oases. Can be to move, using public transport though during long bus moving you, maybe, should stand. If you decide to rent the car, you should fight with bad roads and small number of the fillings located in hundred parts of km from each other.

In "capitals" of oases of Bakhary, Dakhla and Harga operate banks (but it is exclusive in Harge is the bank machine gun), in all oases there is at present a communication by phone (or perhaps and on the Web) with the external world.
Generally the climate in oases that as in small towns of the Plain of Nile, located at the same width - Bakhariya is similar to Minye, Harga - to Luxor, but air here is fresher (though the dust causes from time to time difficulties in sine). Winter myagenky in the afternoon and almost frosty a night (take a sleeping bag). In the summer the temperature can rise at midday to 50 "With and to 20 °C a night.

Tourism is in hands of local authorities and businessmen, competence and which honesty are very various. In Bakhary there are a lot of operators of the safaris competing in business, in Farafra even less offers also are not present a tourist office. The tourist office of Dakhla will help guests to agree correctly with local drivers or operators of a safari, and in Harge the personnel of a tourist office and a museum itself conducts tours as additional work.

Tourists can avoid these restrictions, bathing in more isolated places, but the most part of ladies should be covered to avoid stickings from guides and uninvited admirers. The ladies travelling alone, should not enter into palm groves or gardens that here is considered as the invitation to sex.
