El Karm

Located in St. Katherine’s Protectorate, about a two-hour walk through the desert from the monastery, El Karm is the most recent addition to Egypt’s growing eco-tourism market.

A collaboration between the authorities responsible for the restoration of the monastery and the local Bedouin, it is entirely owned, managed and operated by the local Bedouin community.

The lodge offers visitors an authentic desert mountain experience.
