Sustainable Village

[T]aziry is located 16 km away from the city centre and 4 km from Temple of the Oracle. The Bir Wahed hot sulfuric spring is 12 km away. Taziry has been built at the footstep of the famous Red Mountain of Siwa, facing the magnificent White Mountain; overlooking the vast Gary Lake, and the timeless dunes of the Great Sand Sea. Taziry provides a unique return to nature experience, where one can truly since this magical energy of Siwa. The concept of Taziry revolves around the conservation of the local Amazigh (Berber) culture of Siwa and the Mediterranean region. A market place with 50 handicraft workshops have been operating in Taziry to revive the sustainable living know how of Siwa’s ancestral natives. In addition, a library and museum have been built to highlight not only the wonders of the Berber arts, literature and music; but also the universal sciences that pursue and stir sustainable development. Taziry guests can ride Arabian horses and enjoy camel excursions. Other activities include star gazing, bird watching, and bathing in natural swimming pool.

Green Energy

[T]he sun radiation per square meter is the highest in Siwa in the entire region. At Taziry, the Sun is renewable energy of choice. Solar water heating panels are installed over the rooms to produce high temperatures of water in the showers. Photovoltaic is used in some facilities of the Ecolodge, such as the reception and the kitchen to supply power efficient tools, preventing dependence on polluting fossilfueled systems. Furthermore Taziry might be regard as a laboratory for green energy technologies, where innovative and reliable green energy solutions are constantly implemented and tested as a model for the oasis of Siwa. Moreover, genuine solid waste management is undertaken in the village. Organic waste is disposed of to animals or used as compost, sewage is treated through an engineered wetland, and inorganic waste is segregated and sent for recycling.

[T]here are 30 rooms in Taziry, combining large comfortable double rooms and family chalets. Each room is distinct from the other, with a spacious bathroom and a private veranda. While some chalets are carved out of the mountain, others are facing the natural swimming pool of flowing fresh water from the fountain. The furniture featured in the Ecolodge has all been developed in Taziry’s local carpentry and handicrafts workshops.

The decorations are an authentic redesign of Berber settings, and the ceilings are made from palm trees. The construction with “Karshif” (mud bricks, salt and other natural elements) eliminates the need for air-conditioning, while doors and windows are ideally positioned to capture the desert breeze. Oil lamps and candles are used for lighting.

Organic Living

[A]t Taziry you will be served with North African/Siwan cuisine, which was claimed by guests as one of the finest in Egypt. Taziry’s chef is present at both ends of the culinary spectrum, fetching vegetables, fruits, oils, honey, jams, eggs, milk, meats, poultry and fish from their home grown organic farms. While their objective is to be fully self-sufficient in nutrition; they are constantly innovating to create a brand cuisine for Taziry, aiming high quality standards of health and taste.

The Stud & The Great Sand Sea

“And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it, and created the horse. Thou shall fly without wings, Oh Horse! ” The Arabian horse is a dreamlike creature that will always inspire by their beauty, character and strength. Taziry Stud breed pure Arabian horses, who fit in their perfect habitat of Siwa Oasis. From trotting on the plane terrains across the olive and palm tree farms, to galloping over the proverbial sand dunes of the Great Sand Sea, Taziry horses are trained to deliver the most memorable journeys a rider could dream of.
