Siwa is an oasis lying to the West of the Nile Valley. Siwa has very strong historical and cultural ties to the Nile Valley to the extent that Alexander the Great may have had it as the first thing he visited in Egypt upon conquering it.Today, Siwa offers for native Egyptians -along with Sinai Mountains and beaches- some of the most interesting visiting places after the Nile Valley countryside. In this collaborative article, Siwa's culture, geography as well as all logistical details will be explained for the most intellectual explorers by the Community of SaharaSafaris.
The discussion will cover the many sides of one of few research-based novels in Egypt. It tells the story of the remote Siwa oasis during the troubling days after the British occupation of Egypt in the 19th Century. The novel has been awarded the inaugural IPAF (International Prize for Arabic Fiction) AKA the Arab Booker Prize. The discussion is welcoming all notes on literature, history, culture, geography of Siwa and the area.
