EGYPT: KITE SAFARI 2020

Dates: SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER (all details in the carts below)

Dudes and dudettes!
All signs on the sky are telling us we’re back on track!

Egyptian Kite Safari has a solid reputation of the legendary kitesurfing trip. To be honest, it’s really difficult to experience such amazing kite trip at that price level and all this just a few hours of flight from Europe.
Up to this it’s definitely one of the safest trips in terms of corona virus exposure. For the whole time we stay in a small and closed group. Kite Safari is an absolute must have for every kitesurfer.

PAMPERING WEATHER

WIND

The peak of wind season in Egypt lasts from June till the end of September. However, on the islands located at the open sea the wind is always a bit stronger so the statistics there are also good in May and October. Don’t forget that as the priests in the temple of kitesurfing, we are always at the mercy of the gods of the wind and our every trip is a bull’s eye! When it comes to wind strength in Egypt – you can expect everything: from 10 to 35 knots. Therefore we recommend taking all possible kite sizes. During our stay on the islands we will kite in lagoons with the off shore wind. The wind is stable and very pleasant. At the hotel’s spot we have wind from the side, side on shore.

TEMPERATURES

Temperatures differ a bit depending on the date. In September it is still hot. No need for a wetsuit. In October temperatures starts to drop slightly. It’s always individual but in the middle of the day it is still quite hot and most people will feel comfy just in shorts/bikini. But taking some thin wetsuit (2-3mm) is recommended. The best ones are with long sleeves and short legs.
Anytime you travel to Egypt don’t forget to take high filter sunscreen. The best are zinc based that are very waterproof and safe for you and environment. We provide high quality cosmetics designed for surfers in our online SHOP.

TAWILA, GEISUM & ABU MINQAR

TAWILA ISLAND

kite safari tawila wyjazdy egipt

Tawila is the favorite spot during Safarinio. Unfortunately, due to the relatively short distance from the very popular El Gouna it is becoming more and more crowded. Tawila has almost everything from a paradise like beach. Water colors are like a rainbow made of shades of blue, starting from almost fluorescent turquoise to deep navy blue. At Tawila we ride in a shallow lagoon (waist deep water) with the off shore wind. Wind direction is not a problem and you can feel fully safe as there are always two rescue motor boats in the reserve. Advantage of this wind direction is that on the leeward side the water is very flat! The bottom of the lagoon is relatively sandy, but we recommend to bring neoprene shoes (sharp shells might happen).

WYSPA: POŁUDNIOWY GEISUM

Geisum w stosunku do Tawili jest położone jeszcze bardziej na północ. Wiatr jest tu z reguły nieco silniejszy niż na Tawili. Sam spot podobnie jak poprzedni to rozległa laguna z wodą do pasa i urzekającymi kolorami wody. Ciekawostką, dodającą industrialnego klimatu pływaniu są znajdujące się w okolicy szyby naftowe. Także tutaj pływa się na off shore, dzięki czemu woda w lagunie pozostaje płaska nawet przy mocnym wietrze.

WYSPA: ABU MINQAR

abu minqar kite safari egipt wyjazdy wyspy

Abu Munqar to spot położony blisko Hurghady co odbiera mu co nieco z uroku i tajemnicy morskiej przygody. Jednak samo miejsce jest rewelacyjne. Mamy tu w sumie dwie laguny z ogromną przestrzenią do pływania. Dodatkową zaletą tego miejsca jest to, że zazwyczaj jest tutaj niewiele łodzi i często cały ten spot mamy tylko dla siebie. Osoby pływające działają głównie po stronie zawietrznej długiej łachy piachu rozdzielającej laguny. Strona nawietrzna to miejsce świetne do prowadzenia szkoleń czy osób mających jeszcze trudności z ostrzeniem.

7 NIGHTS ON THE BOAT

4* BOAT: ‘SPRING LAND’

From the day first we gonna host you on the boat.
Accommodation on the boat is one of the key experiences of Kite Safari. We are leaving the land and city stress to anchor at the islands of ease and active rest.

Upcoming days are filled with kitesurfing and good food. Than at the evenings we all meet at the chilling deck to talk, relax and sip some cold juice.
For our comfort and daily logistic we bring 2 Zodiac rescue boats. The sea we travel on is rather not to harsh but if you’re not used to boat swinging we recommend to take some motion sickness pills. During the boat stops we anchor at the flat lagoons ensuring full comfort of stay.

OUR TRIP LAST 7 DAYS*

Our Kite Safari always starts and ends on Thursday. General The general plan is as follow:
(ATTENTION! As the actual rules and situation are unstable below shown information are subject to change)

  1. Flight to Hurghada. As most of our customers are from Poland time schedule is based on flight from/to Warsaw. Coming at different time need to be agreed prior agreement.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - READ CAREFULLY

CORONA VIRUS

The advantage of Kite Safari is virtually zero contacts with larger groups of unfamiliar people. Immediately upon arrival, we pick you up from the airport and transfer directly to the boat. We spend the entire trip in a small group (max 20 people) who met the virological safety requirements before boarding the plane. After the event with private bus we transfer you back to the airport.
Before and after each event, the boat’s crew have the temperature tested and complete a health declaration. Between the events the crew stays on the boat or leave it only in urgent situations. Cabins and common areas are disinfected after each stay. At any time, disinfectants are available on the boat that we can use on a regular basis. One cabin will remain free – intended as an isolation room in the event of disease symptoms. And bear in mind that the virus does not like the sun and wind, to which our boat is exposed all the time 🙂

VISAS

At present moment, visas to Egypt for EU citizens have been temporarily suspended 😀 We save $ 25!

MOTION SICKNESS

Those fragile to boat swinging we do recommend taking pills for the time of boat travel. After anchoring on the spots we stay in calm waters with full comfort for anyone

VACCINATIONS

No special vaccinations are required when traveling to Egypt. However, a standard vaccination package such as hepatitis (A and B), typhoid fever, tetanus, diphtheria and rabies is recommended.

MONEY

The currency in Egypt is the Egyptian Pound. In Hurghada we can easily find an ATM, but on the boat we only use cash (pounds / dollars / euros). When bringing dollars to Egypt, please remember to check that these are the newest  banknotes, preferably 100 USD notes (for lower denominations one will get a worse exchange rate)..

SAFETY

Despite the fact that some countries warns against traveling to Egypt, the statistics say one thing – Hurghada and El Gouna are places where dangerous situations involving tourists practically do not happen. After all – there are no pirates on the Red Sea 🙂 When on the boat, however, you must follow the safety rules that we discuss before the cruise. It is forbidden, among others alcohol consumption.

POWER SOCKETS

Sockets in Egypt are identical to European ones, so no adapters are needed unless you’re from UK 🙂

INTERNET

While on the boat we can often be out of signal reach. For organizational reasons (as well as for people who need Internet access) we recommend buying a Vodafone SIM card directly at the airport after landing (later it is very troublesome).

WETSUITS AND NEOPRENE BOOTS

In most cases bottom in the lagoons is covered with soft sand. However, in Red Sea are common shells with long and hard spikes. Therefore, if you’re still beginner or will take part in kitesurfing course we highly recommend taking neoprene boots with you.
