This Organic Farm and Eco-Lodge In Nuweiba is Leading the Way in Egyptian Agro-Tourism

A slice of the simple life isn't without its dues.

Habiba Organic Farm, Nuweiba

Initially a modest camp setup by a couple looking to escape the rigours of city life, Nuweiba’s Habiba Organic Farm and Eco-Lodge has emerged not only as a unique beachside getaway, but a trailblazer in agro-tourism in Egypt.

Certified by World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms, an international organisation that promotes agro-tourism, owners Maged and Loreina El Saeed offer volunteers from across the world free accommodation and meals in exchange for work on the farm and a taste the simple life.

The unique set-up feeds into the owners’ goal of sustaining themselves and the lodge, as well as giving back to the local Bedouin communities that welcomed them so warmly when Habiba was just nothing but a simple idea. Even engineering and architecture students are welcomed to the lodge, where they’re given a chance to work on capstone projects by building and maintaining structures and facilities using nothing by 100% sustainable and upcycled materials.

Agro-tourism remains a fairly alien concept to Egypt, but Habiba has shown that in Sinai and in many other places across the country, it’s a potentially rich and fruitful form of niche tourism.
