It’s the season for picnics, outdoor pool or beach parties and long romantic (or not) garden strolls. Spring’s finally here! Living in Cairo, where greenery pretty much consists 0.0005% (made up/exaggerated number) of the city, makes Spring such a favorite getaway season! This Spring, brace yourselves for two out-of-this world festivals!!

Safe and Sound Dahab fest

The festival will have a multitude of activities to take part in; from diving courses and safari trips to fitness camps and musical entertainment where some of Egypt’s favourite bands are set to appear. Add to that the town’s golden beaches and spectacular mountain scenes, and you’ve got one hell of a winning combo.

If you haven’t been to Dahab yet then this is your chance to explore it in style. If, like many of us, you have been to the spectacular Red Sea diving destination before, you will know that Dahab is famous for its unique rustic feeling, which differentiates it from other resort towns like Sharm. Unlike the latter, Dahab is still untouched by the clutter of modern society; only a handful of big name hotels exist there, and not one fast food chain exists within the town’s vicinity!

From the 29th of April – 2nd of May 2016

All Accommodation packages includes:

Accommodation for 4 days/3 nights for 2 guests

3-day festival pass for 2 guests.

The festival will feature Dj’s and live bands for 3 days from 12 PM to 10 PM.
