Go Karting In sharm el sheikh

Go Karting is a great activity for both inexperienced and experienced drivers. Take in the excitement of driving fast against each other, as electronic timing devices on board the go karts record all your movements. Afterwords, you get print outs of your times and positions. When you plan your karting day, it is advisable that you plan it on a day followed by a more relaxing one, because as a result of the fact that you haven’t karted recently, you may wake up with sore arms the next day. But no worries, it is the nice sweet pain, so don’t let it be the reason for you not to go.

Karting clubs usually offer special clothing as well as helmets and gloves – everything which will make you comfortable and safe while driving. The staff in these places is usually much trained, and they speak English, Russian, Italian and German. The prices start from 15 USD and may go up to 150 depending on the session you are taking. Please also note that karting in the evening is more expensive, so if you don’t have the budget, go in the morning. Such places are usually open since 10-11am.

Horseback Riding on Sinai beaches

If you are an early bird and love horses, then take the opportunity to go on a sunrise trip out in the desert or along the beach. There are a couple of stables offering excursion rides. There is nothing nicer than being on horseback in the peaceful desert at dawn, while it is still cool and enjoyable. If dawn is not your thing then there are also sunset rides. Just be honest and let the guide know if you are a novice or experienced, so you are ensured a suitable horse and pace. Concorde Hotel and Sofitel just outside Naama Bay have a well run and profession operations and the horses are well looked after. Most rides vary from one to two hours.

Integrating with Sinai nature is great, but integrating with Sinai nature on a camel/horse trip is even greater. Here your options are unlimited: you can enjoy sun rise or sun set excursions, as stables work 24 hours. So if you are in for a romantic atmosphere, this is the thing to go for.

Just for a general note: Since the stables are located in the desert, not many taxis will agree to take you there, and even if they do, the prices will be magnified. This is why it is recommended to call the place beforehand, as they organize a free transportation for their guests to and from the stable. Another thing to pay attention to is the choice of the horse: if you are a beginner, ask for a horse between 6-18 years of age. Also keep in mind that the temperament of the horse should suit with the rider. An expert rider may require a horse that is highly responsive to his commands, whereas a novice should have a much milder horse.

It is a good way to spend an hour, and you get a nice view of the Sharm coastline.
