Fishing in Lake Nasser, Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh:
One of the most famous places for fishing all over the world is Lake Nasser. It is approximately 310 miles in length (1550 square miles) and can reach a depth of 600 feet. Lake Nasser has arguably the best freshwater fishing in the world for both Nile perch and Tiger Fish. There are also several species of catfish; the legendary giant Vonda being the biggest. Two species of Tilapia also inhabit the lake and give a good account of themselves on a fly rod. There are some thirty two species of fish in the lake.
Birds Watching in Egypt:
There are about 150 kind of resident birds in Egypt. Egypt is a migration corridor which attracts some 280 additional kind of birds because it occupies a unique geographical location as a bridge between the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa and therefore millions of birds pass through the country on their way from Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Siberia and Central Asia to Eastern and Southern Africa each autumn, and on their way back each spring. Migration begins in the Winter months. Summer migration begins in early August.

Mountain Climbing in St. Catherine in Egypt:
Mt. Moses, also Mt. Sinai, is honored by the three great monotheistic religions. The path of Moses, starts in a gentle slope and gets steep on the last bit where it ends at the valley of Elijah. The final steep climb leads over rocky steps to the summit. Just below the summit in a natural hollow in the granite the imprint of a camel’s foot can be made out. The magnificent view from the summit is worthwhile the effort of a 3 hour long climb to the top of Mt. Moses. 3600 steps –skillfully arranged by a monk on penalty – lead to the gate of Stephanos, where he heard the confessions of the pilgrims and giving them absolution before letting them pass. The steep way down leads to points with extraordinary views, always the smell of herbal plants and the chirping birds at company.
Windsurfing in Egypt:
Cross shore, consistent daily thermal wind means you can set off and return easily from the sandy beach. It is shallow enough to practice beach or water starts or to feel confident you are not going to stray too far from home. There is flat water inside the moon shaped bay, with chop in the middle section and swells outside – up to 4 or 5 feet during the windiest season, providing plenty of starboard hand ramps to play on. There is heaps of space and it’s easy to sail further upwind, blast downwind or to take advantage of the little ‘Hookipa’ Bay. Here the swells wrap round the point to give small but perfectly positioned ramps. Great for learning jumps with coaching video feedback! Ideal conditions to let you just get on with your windsurfing…all day
Desert Trekking in Bahariya Oasis, White Desert and Siwa Oasis in Egypt:
20 million dollars for a trip into space when you can go to the moon for so much less? OK, its not really the moon, but the landscape is surreal; alien in every way, and it changes from one moment to the next. It is the type of place that creates wonder in adults, where such feelings were long ago thought lost. It is a land not yet fully explored, with twists and turns that reveal ever changing landscapes. This is the Bahariya Oasis, and the nearby, or rather, encroaching western desert. The evenings bring simple pleasures, including well made meals cooked by the Bedouins on open fires, songs from shared cultures, a little primitive dancing accompanied by one real drum, and much handclapping, the Bedouins sing a traditional song incorporating the events of the day, which, as the trekkers begin to be caught up in the music, encourages them to dance. We sleep under the stars which, with not even the glow of a nearby village, sparkle and shine with the glow that few people will ever experience.
