Bedouin Festival

Learn about Bedouin history and culture, find out about the Sinai desert’s medicinal plants, explore canyons carved by time, listen to the silence of the desert, observe the moon and planets through a telescope, witness a camel race, taste bread baked in the sand, enjoy a sweet Bedouin tea or simply come and relax at the Dahab Bedouin Festival taking place this year between the 1st and 7th of April.

The Dahab Bedouin Festival is a non-profit event. Throughout the week from 1st to 7th of April, all earnings from the festival go towards ecological awareness programmes. Promoting Bedouin culture and Bedouin in the tourism industry is the initial objective of the festival. Our second objective is preserving the natural environment. Since the 1st Bedouin festival that took place in May 2011, the main original organisers have been holding monthly events during the full moon in order to raise some funds that go towards cleaning up Dahab. We will persist until we have reached are very easy yet hard to achieve target: to keep Dahab clean.
