Tribe Expeditions is a specialist operator organizing well mounted expeditions to Gilf Kebir plateaux, Uweinat Mountain and Great Sand Sea in Egypt. We prepare our cars , camping and navigation equipment specially to suite the long distance off road driving required to reach one of the most remote and unexplored parts of the Sahara desert.

Our interest in the desert started in 1995 and developed through the years, since 2001 the Gilf Kebir area was our prime concern. We have been participating in several expeditions in Egypt and Libya   following the early explorer’s traces with multiple objectives including searching for rock art sites, understanding Egypt prehistory and Venturing through unbeaten dunes. In 2005 we started to organize our own expeditions planning pioneer routes passing through the famous and historical sites plus exploring unknown parts of the desert on each expedition.
