Egypt’s Western Desert region has a wild, untrammelled romance that is simply breathtaking. Of the five major oases in the region, Al Kharga is the most special and one of the most ancient sites in Egypt. It was originally developed by the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, and then further enhanced under the Romans and Persians.
Al Kharga is an ancient rest stop for travellers venturing into the desert. It is a melting pot of rich history, architecture and culture. Today, the oasis has a rich collection of historic and archaeological ruins that date back to different periods in time.
