Desert Hare Hunting


There are lots of wild animals in the desert. One of them is the desert hare. It is occasionally hunted for sport and for its gamy meat. During the hunt outlined below, two adult hares were shot. Their meat is delicious: dark and gamy, and has a unique flavor, reminiscent of wild fowl.

The technique of the hunt is quite challenging for such a small quarry. It has to be done in complete darkness. The 4-wheel drives wander in the desert until a hare is spotted (via the headlights), then the chase begins. The hunter uses a regular shotgun to shoot the hares. Because of the sand dunes and the rough terrain, there is an element of danger and risk always looming.

Desert Fossils


For the unprepared traveller, the Egyptian Desert (like any desert) can be merciless, and even deadly. However, for the prepared explorer, it has a vast store of treasures waiting to be discovered. In this page, we focus on fossils.

Below are some pictures

El Gezira Tower


El Gezira Tower was build in 1961. It is 187 meters tall, and is located in the center of an island in the middle of the Nile River in Cairo. It has a very nice view of Cairo from all around. You can see the old Citadel, The Pyramids, old Cairo, the Nile river flowing from the south and into the north, and a lot more.

Here are some pictures of the tower, and from the tower
