Dakhla Dune Park
Retreat: Al Tarfa Desert Sanctuary
Egypt > Dakhla Oasis


In association with the New Valley Province Al Tarfa has completed a survey of a vast dune area in Dakhla Oasis. The project succeeded in declaring 7 square km of the pristine and unique environment of matchless sand formations as a Local Park. Dakhla Dune Park will soon be used as a base for the study on climate change on the arid Egyptian. The complex dune system, salt marshes and prehistoric lakes, will be ideal for such studies.
