Desert Fox Camp

Desert Fox Camp is on the footslopes of Mount Sinai, near St Katherine. It’s 100% Bedouin-owned, with 22 rooms and free WIFI. We draw fresh water from our wells and have olive, almond trees and jasmine trees, plus a UN medicinal herbs allotment. You can camp in our garden or park your vehicle if you’re off-roading and we have a Bedouin tent with a fire for cold nights. Desert Fox Camp is the cheapest, friendliest camp in town: perfect for visiting the Monastery of St Katherine and arranging treks, safaris and other activities.

On a bus from Cairo: We are the first camp on the way into town. Ask your driver to drop you at Fox Camp or the monastery (ie Monastery of St Katherine). If you’re on the bus from Cairo, he’ll drop you at a small roundabout, where you can start walking to the monastery. You can see us from here: we’re 100m away, on the main road into town (left side of the road).

From the middle of town: Follow the main road out of the town centre. We are about 1km out, or a 15 min walk on this road.

In a taxi: Desert Fox Camp is well-known; just ask for us.
