Witness the tombs in the Oasis of the Western desert before proceeding to the Temple of the Oracle, famous for its grand vestibule and forecourt. Get a chance to experience a dune ride through the desert in a 4x4 vehicle, and proceed to the Siwa salt lakes for a memorable swim admiring the scenic beauty.

Take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy natural fresh fruit juice while admiring the Oasis landscape. After a mixed grill lunch at an Abdo restaurant, drive through the Siwa desert to the Hot springs and Cold lakes for a dip.
