We are a family of three. I am a geographer and filmmaker and we move between UK and Egypt.
You will learn a lot about the current political situation in Egypt, about Bedouin-Egyptian relations and also about the role that foreigners have played in establishing the resorts of Sinai. You will be living in a village populated with tourist workers (bus drivers, mechanics, carpenters, cleaners, shopworkers etc)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Looking after dogs mostly so more of a dog sitting job. This is for longer term stays for people who want to spend a longer time in Sharm. . Some Arabic preferred and experience of living by yourself. You might be by yourself for a lot of the time and transport can be difficult. The village is now outside the wall that is built around Sharm El Sheikh.
Your own en-suite room (or self-contained apartment depending on availability) in a large villa.
Sharm El Sheikh offers year round sunshine. It is also home to some of the best scuba diving found anywhere in the world particularly at Ras Mohamed. There are many fantastic diving centres and windsurfing and kitesurfing is also easy to learn here.
About 90km up the road is Dahab, a backpacker's paradise with a lively international community of diving and desert enthusiasts.
You can also go trekking in the high mountains around St. Catherine's monastery - built on the site where Moses is reputed to have received the ten commandments from God.
Or go off the beaten track on camel desert safaris with Bedouin guides.

There is wifi but this is egypt so it's not always great. We also get regular power cuts but they're usually quite short. The best back up is to have a local SIM card and use phone data.
