THE WHiTE DESERT iN FARAFRA OASiS
The area to the north- east of Qasr el- Frafra which is renowned for its spectacular scenery. The Chalk- white landscape is strewn with alien shapes, boulders of brilliant white which thrust up from the surface of the desert, intensified by the clear light of noon, shimmering gold at sunset or blackened and shrunken in a could-filled sky.
Many of the formations are given descriptive names- sculpeted by the harsh desert winds into weird shapes which constantly change over time. There are "monoliths" and "mushrooms", "ice cream", "tents" and "crickets", as well as the majestic conical flat- topped inselbergs", to name but a few of the formations.
In the remote past, the White Desert was a sea – bed, the sedimentary layers of rock were formed by marine fauna when the ocean dried up. Later a habitat for many roaming herds of elephant, giraffe, gazelle and other animals, the desert would have been a savannah with lush green areas and lakes full of fish, an ideal hunting ground for pre - historic man.
The landscape we see today was formed by the plateau breaking down, leaving harder rock shapes standing while the softer parts are eroded away by wind and sand. In some parts the chalk Surface still has the appearance of delicate wind- ruffled waves on water.
A nature wonder of Egypt, The White Desert is now a protectorate, know as the White Desert Park, where designated route must be followed when driving in 4 WD vehicles. The outer parts nearest the road are known as the Old Desert and can be reached in a normal vehicle.
Many visitors choose an overnight camping safari to witness the drama of both sunset and dawn. The new tracks are laid out to guide vehicles past the most famous desert landmarks, first a field of giant 'mushrooms", followed by an ancient line Acacia tree.
Another area is known as 'The White House', an enclosure of rocks surrounded by gleaming white chalk fields and nearby, a narrow entrance to a deep cave penetrates the rock.
Beyond this in the 'New Desert' which is only accessible by 4WD or carmel, the landscape becomes even whiter. The boulders crowd together, are higher, larger and everywhere weird shaps appear that might remind you of a chicken or a hawk, a troupe of dancers or an old men wearing a hat. The shapes change constantly as the light changes and you move around them and as the sun
begins to set they turn softly glowing pink.
