The Egyptian Black Desert certainly can be called “the black beauty”. Situated in the Western Desert, the Black Desert surrounds the Bahariya Oasis with wonderful hills that holds the cultivations of dates, apricots and olives. Maybe the desert is not as black as the people may expect because of the desert's name, but, indeed the black is the color that characterize this desert. Black basalt, black rocks and volcanic rocks are all over the place. The sand is covered with a crusty and thick layer of old dolerite and volcanic rocks. An incredible view of what once used to be a huge area covered by water. Speaking of water, the Bahariya Oasis from the Black Desert has hot springs, very indicated for therapeutic purposes; these springs have silver in them and people come here to treat different body problems, such as rheumatism. The Black Desert has a serene atmosphere, with a beautiful mountainous look that can be admired in whole its splendor from the tops of the mountains. If you travel to the Black Desert and you will camp in the desert when the night comes, you will have the impression of being in another world. The view is incredible and the sky picture will take your breath away! The people who witnessed this wonder said that they never saw so many stars as on the Black Desert's sky. Even the scientists from NASA came here to observe the planets. After you finish the discovering of the desert you can visit the largest village in Bahariya, Bawiti, where on the principal street you will find nice places to drink a tea, eat a snack and chat with the locals which are very friendly with the visitors, especially the children that play on the street.
