  • Description

    Description

    Our eco-lodge, built in Egypt in 1986 is located in South Sinai between Taba and Nuweiba. Simplicity personifies the philosophy we use in managing the entire camp. We have a friendly staff from all over Egypt giving volunteers a chance to understand the different cultures that exist in the country. Other than the actual management of the camp, We have a greenhouse and a small sheep farm where we grow vegetation and herd.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    One of our aims is to become a model for cultural exchange. Thus, everything we provide to our customers is Egyptian. This will allow volunteers to get exposed to the Egyptian Culture. Also, most of our friendly staff are Egyptian and speak Arabic so it will be a great way to learn and practice the arabic language. And finally, we have guests from all over the world making it a great place to learn about the world from the experiences of our guests. Other than that, we are committed to becoming an EcoLodge and works closely with nearby bedouin tribes and the government to protect the Coral Reef and natural protectorates. Volunteers will get to know many bedouins and understand their culture and way of life. Also, our location is nearby natural valleys such as WeshWashi, Ain Khudra and Wady Malha allowing volunteers to easily get to know the geography of the region for the hiking lovers.
