Im going for the first time next month to Sharm to spend a week diving .


I will be at www.camedivel.com and fly with Lufthtansa to Cairo and then with Egyptair to Sharm.


Im going to take my one equipment.


Any particularly advice or tip to improve my journey ?


  • What kind of care should i take with the food ?
  • Should i care with me some medicine or if i need i can buy it there ?
  • Is there cash machines ?

Anything that can be important!!!


Thank you in advance !!!

Hey Nuno


You've picked a good operation at Camel. I've been to Sharm quite a few times and never had any problems with food but then again I'm not that partial to a salad so maybe that's it! 


Camel have good food options, Pomodoro restaurant, the tandoori, the roof bar are all great for food and Vanilla for an ice-cream after diving is highly recommended. I'm wouldn't bother with any medicine. There are plenty of cash machines near the Camel Hotel.


They are very friendly bunch at Camel, enjoy your diving!

I go to sharm every year diving and camel diving are very good.
What I find it is not so much as a problem with the food, it is more of a problem if you do not drink enough water
The heat will take its toll on your body and this what up sets you. I do normally take a few rehydration packs with
Me just in case but to date have only used them once in 10yrs. Their are plenty of chemists & cash points.
Hope you have a great trip.
