4x4

How to avoid getting bogged down in Sahel beaches

Submitted by Mabrouk on Thu, 2017/06/22 - 10:45pm

Ever heard of a friend who just modified his 4x4 and ventured into Sahel's sandy beach only to humiliate himself by getting bogged down in sand? (Arabic: يغرز فى الرمل) This is to help those poor machos.

Well, few years ago, Jeep Wranglers got so many in Egypt suddenly. They claim those 4x4 SUV cars can get you everywhere but they never told you that Desert requires extra driving skills (a lot more than driving actually) to use those cars right.

The most internationally award-winning lodge in Egypt. Expensive in taste and located in the furthest oasis of Western Desert and closest to elGilf elKabir with nearby airport.

Perhaps this is the most popular 'ecolodge' for Hollywood stars, European royalties and internationally recognized personalities looking for a secluded sanctuary that's both in the middle of great cultural and natural heritage furthest from sophisticated civilisation but with internationally appreciated taste for good service and accessibility.
