Ras Mohammed national park occupies one of the worlds most extraordinary settings, with a dramatically arid peninsula to the south of the Sinai, rising to some of the most gloriously rich coral reefs you will ever see.
This trip runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays
Ras Mohammed park marks the transition of the shallow Gulf of Suez , to the deep intercontinental Gulf of Aqaba, a small portion of the Grift Valley that stretches deep into Africa.
Although not massive in size, Ras Mohammed contains an astounding variety of wildlife, including gazelles of the northern desert and brilliant orange coral reefs.
The boundaries of Ras Mohammed extend far out into the surrounding waters, and even the most casual of visitors is struck by how much of the park is dominated by the sea. Even the dry land area of the park seems a part of the marine world: in the north, large dunes are interspersed with outcroppings of Miocene limestone in which are embedded an astonishing wealth and variety of marine fossils. In fact, the dramatic promontory that marks the Sinai’s southernmost tip belongs in part to the sea, as it is in fact an enormous, fossilized coral reef, left high and dry tens of thousands of years ago.
For many visitors, Ras Mohammed’s most stunning scenery is found underwater, in the broad, terraced coral reefs that encircle the peninsula. Fire corals and brilliant sea fans abound here, and among these lush reef corals roams a truly magnificent array of both reef and pelagic fish–over a thousand species in all.
