We are a diverse group of outdoor therapy enthusiasts, and we share our approach to healing through adventures in the wilderness
The real life experiences and insights we gain from rock climbing, trekking, and horseback riding, shape our methodologies for self healing and self-discovery.
Our approach uses mental and physical exercises in nature to help people deal with their problems. We believe in the use of adventure sports to aid in character development and self discovery.
STATISTICS ABOUT US
We're glad to have such beautiful people joining our expeditions, but what inspires us to keep going is these beautiful words and insights.
Since the 2011 revolution, Egyptian people along with the government have been working together and taking measures to make the country safe and stable for tourists. Both statistics and individual first hand experiences documented by foreigners testify to their success in doing so. Here at Insight Seekers, we can personally verify this as our team and the participants come from all parts of the world and find the country a safe place to live and visit.
As of May 2019, CNN has topped Egypt as the 2nd top destination to visit in 2020. In recent years, tourism in Egypt has been on the rise, tourism being a very important part of the country’s economy. Already in 2017, tourism grew by 55.1 percent welcoming 8.5 million tourists. More recently, in just the first half of this year, tourism revenues rose once again by 36.7 percent. According to a report by the World Tourism and Travel Council, Egypt expects a continued increase in tourism, with the prediction for the coming year to be around 11.7 million tourists.
Southern Sinai, Egypt is safe and peaceful place, especially the desert. The desert in which expeditions take place is a protected land. Only the local Bedouins who have always lived there, stay there. For any non-Bedouin, there are several checkpoints and a requirement of a local Bedouin guide to enter.
We’ve been doing these expeditions for 3 years now and have never had any participant who felt unsafe or had any concerns. As a matter of fact, we’ve had multiple participants share that they felt safer in the desert than walking around in their home cities.
As for the expedition itself, Belal the founder, is on every expedition. He discovered and picked the trails himself. Along with him, we have local Bedouin guides that have grown up and spent their entire lives in the desert. They know every corner, for it is their home. Their expertise and knowledge guarantee a safe journey for each expedition.. but just for an added measure, there is a vehicle with GPS a phone call away at all times as well.

10 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE COMING TO EGYPT
We most definitely can! All our food will be prepared on site with local and organic ingredients. As long as you specify your dietary preferences when applying, we can accommodate everything. After applying, we will organize a time to discuss in detail about the expedition and what to expect. At this time, we ask you to communicate your needs so that together we can ensure you receive what you need. Since certain items are not available in Egypt, we work together to have the best outcome!
With the group sizes between 7-12 people, you’ll find yourself in a cozy group of new like-minded individuals from around the world. Our expeditions attract seekers from all over the globe, so we end up learning from each other as much as the desert and mountains.
The common language between participants will be English, while the guide is also fluent in Arabic and the guide assistant in German. There are no age restrictions for who can join, so each group is a diverse mixture of varying ages and different backgrounds. However, everyone who attends shares the common objective of healing, self-discovery and character development in nature.
A form of medical insurance is a necessity, one that will cover you abroad. However, this is a personal responsibility. Travel insurance is highly recommended for those who do not have international coverage on their insurance at home.
While our guides and team help you remain safe throughout the expedition and we’ve not had any accidents (other than the occasional stubborn blister) to date, ultimately life is unpredictable and we want to ensure your safety.
There will be a medical form to fill out as part of your application for the expedition to guarantee your safety.
