Badawya Village

Bedouins live in various regions of the Egyptian desert since ancient times. Although the desert is for humans one of the most demanding and difficult living environments the Bedouins succeeded for centuries to live in harmony with nature. Their habits and customs hardly changed till today. The different Bedouin tribes are subdivided in clans which live together in transportable tents. Bedouins always have to move on to seek grazing for their camels, sheep, goats and donkeys. This pastoral, meager nomadic life taught the Bedouins to life frugal and respectful with their environs. Hospitality and friendship are the fundament of the Bedouins tradition.
