This time, YPT takes you… nowhere! That’s right — we push the boundaries by organizing the first group tour to Bir Tawil, a piece of land stuck between Sudan and Egypt which isn’t claimed by any of them. It is the world’s only inhabitable land that isn’t claimed by anyone, and we will go there. Call us crazy but this will actually be the second tour we have ran to this most amazing of places. In fact our last trip was so eventful we even wrote a book about it.
Bir Tawil has been claimed by many internet-based micronations, but very few of them have actually been there and no one has ever stayed to establish a presence. There, we will be beyond the laws of any nation.
To get there, we will start from Sudan so this trip can also be done as an extension of our Sudan trip. A trip to Sudan wouldn’t be complete without a visit of the Meroe so we will first head there and visit its multiple ancient necropolises.
Then, with our own transportation and food, we will head north, towards the Sudan-Egypt border — crossing not via road but directly through the depths of the deserts, with only the tyre tracks of other vehicles to mark our path.
We will then get to Bir Tawil and explore this land for a full day, setting foot where no one rules. You might be the first group to ever visit, but you will be one of only a handful of people that can claim they have been to Bir Tawil.
This is the ultimate adventure for extreme travelers and geopolitics geeks! Don’t miss your chance at making history!
