Al Tarfa Desert Sanctuary Lodge - The Deep Unexplored Lands Of EgyptAl Tarfa Desert  
Sanctuary Lodge

There is much more to Egypt than the Red Sea resorts and the ancient pyramids. Al Tarfa Desert Sanctuary is located deep inside the country, off the beaten track. The lodge is set in the Dakhla, which is regarded as Egypt's most beautiful oasis. This sizeable private reserve is a contrasting experience to the overwhelming bustle in Cairo. The charming simplicity of life, along with the endless landscape of dunes, forms a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. It's a magical world with historical relics and Saharan fortresses far away from urban life. In fact, it's a ten-hour-long road trip down here from Cairo.

Al Tarfa took inspiration from the local villages and used natural materials and primitive construction methods to build this eco-lodge. Each of the twenty rooms and suites is uniquely designed and has custom-made lamps and carpets. Ceilings are made out of interwoven palm leaves, and the suites are equipped with fireplaces and plunge pools.

From the terrace where the swimming pool is located, the natural wonderland of Arabia reveals all its layers. From the crispy greenery of the palm trees through the orange dunes and cliffs to the sun-baked sky. A perfect environment to slow down time and enjoy the simple things in life.
