Egypt is a desert country where people broadly inhabit on the banks of Nile River, some in the valleys and oases in the middle of these deserts and others on coastal areas of Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

Walk along mud houses and ancient ruins in Egyptian desert oases, shop for locally made crafts and rub shoulders with Bedouins carrying out century old traditions− the Egyptian Desert is one of those mystic places where regular living practices are suspended or absent, a place where water access is everything and land ownership is nothing.
