Drive by Land Cruiser vehicle to the Managed Resource Protected Area of Nabaq,our tour stats with picking you up from the hotel till Wadi Mander which considered to be one of the most beautiful sites in Sinai desert, you will be able to come close to the real Bedouin life and their villages, watch fascination of the desert nature. From Wadi Mander we reach Nabaq With an area of over 600 kilometers square, it contains 134 plant species, 6 of them are found only in Nabq, and 86 are perennial. All desert areas are therefore fragile. The area contains of the largest single stands of Arak bushes (Salvadorea persica) in the Middle East.

The mangrove stand at Nabq fronts the shoreline at the mouth of Wadi Kid. The location and density of trees suggest that there is infiltration of fresh water, reducing the salinity to levels tolerated by the species. Mangroves have adapted to their saline environment. Their root systems, seen as leafless branches sprouting from the ground around each tree, act as a barrier, keeping out most of the salts from the seawater. The water with its dissolved nutrients then nourishes the tree. Salt not removed by the roots is exuded by the leaves and seen as salt crystals on the underside of each leaf.

Different Animals can seen in Nabaq such as Gazelle, Nubian Ibex, Hyrax and small mammal populations inhabit the adjacent desert, and bireds such as Heron, Spoonbill and Osprey have sustainable breeding populations in and around the mangroves. Coral reefs in Nabq are extremely rich. Reef profiles and therefore community structure are different from reefs in the Ras Mohammed National Park. Visibility is often poor as a result of fine sediments washing out of the mangrove area, but this does not detract from the beauty and diversity of the reefs. Excellent reefs with easy access can be seen at Shoura al Manquata, where we can make some snorkeling.

From Nabaq we will drive till Dahab, where we will have Lunch, and after we have a great opportunity to make some snorkeling in the beautiful Lagoon. We will end our day with a Shooping tour in the markets of Dahab.
