Visited Wadi El-Gemal or Valley of the Camels in July 2020, in the midst of an ongoing pandemic. Luckily during the visit of the National Park's terrestrial "half," it was just myself, two travel companions and two local guides - enough physical distancing. Amidst the sweltering heat, our 4x4 drove through rocky landscape, specks of acacia trees across the valley and true to the park's name, herds of camels resting underneath them. 

The next day, our group visited the Park's marine "half" and swam through healthy coral reefs and walked around mangrove forests. This land-sea continuum truly reflects the site's potential OUV and unique biodiversity.
