At the HATOR-CHALET and the HOUSE-of-the-SUN with dessert palm gardens int the oasis Daklaha


With this

individual customisable offer

I would like to offer a framework to enable interested women and men to have an inspiring, relaxed time in an oasis on the edge of the dessert. The daily schedule will develop depending on the needs and interests of the visitors. There will be enough space for joint activities as well as individual design options.



 Possible activities are for example:

Accompaniment when exploring the dessert area, which you can then familiarize yourself with.

Information about life in the oasis, (with a trip to the old clay town ant its traditional pottery workshop, which is more than 1000 years old, weaving project for young women, agricultural New-valley-project).

Contacts with oasis dwellers and sedentary Bedouins.

Bathe in our 38-degree hot spring by the light of the stars and let your body and soul dangle under palm trees in the hammock.

If requested I can organize day trips with camels into the sand dessert

Circle dances, (sacred dances) meditative and energetic, with the power of the ancestor dances

Immerse yourself in the symbolism of Hathor, Maat and other Egyptian goddesses.

Silent meditation in the so-called “dome” of the chalet.

Shamanic drumming at sunset.

Mantric healing chants and trance work.

Encounters with the spiral and the labyrinth in many different ways.


All these activities can be an impetus for the personal growth process. However, it is important for the chosen time in the oasis and the dessert that there is enough space for your own inner perception so that you can lovingly “come to yourself” again.


On request and if necessary, I am willing to give individual sessions. (Please discuss the financial compensation with me beforehand)


Bir El Gabal offers is a unique opportunity to explore the dessert up close without a guide. It is one of the most varied dessert areas in Egypt that I know, with the most diverse manifestations of sand, clay and stone;

Charming and impressive, a great miracle:


I would be happy to advise you on booking a flight to Luxor, possibly booking a hotel there and the respective transfers to the hotel or to the oasis. On request we can send a reliable English-speaking taxi driver to Luxor for a pick-up and a relaxing drive to the old, traditional palm oasis of Dakhla.
