The White Desert: an unusual desert with its colours going from white to cream.

My suggestion:
For your trip, make sure you don't forget your sunglasses for the day and your headlamp for the night!
My review

The White Desert is breathtaking! In effect, the various shades of white in the sand allow you to discover the desert in another way. The shapes you encounter (mushroom-shaped rocks) are also surprising!

This desert is filled with charm, but also mysteries. During your trip to Egypt, you'll have the opportunity to spend a night with Berbers in the White Desert, which is one of the most unforgettable adventures I've had chance to experience. Beyond this time of encounters, sharing and dancing, the following day provided me with one of the most remarkable surprises.

After my night sleeping under the stars, I woke up and began looking for my shoes. I had sensibly placed them at my feet, but I could only put my hands on one of them. After a search, I found the second one a few metres away. The laces were cut. A fennec fox had been on an adventure in the night and had taken my trainer for a toy! Needless to say, I regretted having missed out on this episode, which had nevertheless taken place so close to me!
