Spending 6 weeks in mid winter in the desert, means that you are not normal tourists, welcome you will find in Egyptian desert too many oasis, that make satisfy your interests and more and more than what you expect, there are in addition Daqla , Xarga , Farafra.. etc oasis , where you find nature , sun, tribal s, local languages , dinosaur skeleton and more and more
Answered by Derek , Cairo, Egypt
Yes, you can.
The best plan would be to travel to, and spend a night or two in Siwa, (8-10 hours drive from Cairo) visiting the local attractions. You will find plenty of guides in Siwa who will obtain permission to take you overland (about 5 hours) across the Western Desert to Bahariya Oasis, where there are a number of decent places to stay including Kasr Bawiti.. The owner of Kasr Bawaiti (and a few others) can arrange trips to the White Desert, including overnights if you like.... From Bahariya, it is then around 5 hours back to Cairo....

Dear Sir; It's to our pleasure that you are thinking to visit our country. i have a very nice programm for your trip to oasis if you would like you can contact me that is my Private mail Shahrazad_moon26@yahoo.com
Day 1 | Bahariya
Early morning driving to Oasis Bahariya, about 04 hours drive, 340 kilometers from Cairo. (Private transfer arranged upon request).
Pick up from Bahariya Bus station & transfer to the hotel. That is only if the guest would like to stay in hotel but if he prefers to spent the two night sleeping in the desert that is ok
Bahariya is the nearest oasis to Cairo, surrounded by black hills made up of ferruginous quartzite and dolerite, and famous for its 398 mineral & sulfur springs, some of which have temperatures reaching up to 45 degrees and are famous for their healing effects.
Arrive in Bawiti the capital of the Oasis occupying a hillside. After lunch, you will start an afternoon tour amongst top sights of Bahariya, including El Meftella Mountain, Salty Lake, Dest (Pyramid Mountain) & Maghrafa Mountain, stroll to Bir el Ghaba & el Matar warm springs with opportunity for bathing.
Dive into the history of the Oasis by visiting the Tomb of Bannantiu "26 Dynasty" with its still vibrantly colored decorations.
Move to the Ruins of the temple of Alexander The Great; believed that the Greek conqueror passed through Bahariya while returning from the oracle of Ammon at siwa Oasis.
Visiting the valley of the Golden Mummies; A huge burial site, where around 250 mummies form the different periods of the Egyptian history were discovered.
Time permitting; a visit to the English Mountain will take place by sunset. Here, the old English outpost was used by British troops as it showed strategic views of the area.
Over night in our hotel
Day 2 | White Desert
Early morning breakfast before journeying out into the Black Desert surrounding Bahariya Oasis, where the iron in the desert is one of the reasons for the black rocks.
You will walk to explore Gabal el Marsos (Divided Mountain), and then drive towards the small Bedouin village El Hez with outdoor lunch break.
Making your way to the White Desert 160-km on/off road, you will stop by the Crystal Mountain & Agabat el Sharkia, El Santa tree, go across the sands of the White Desert with its chalky, cream landscape, and the wind carved mushroom-shaped formations that resemble both human and animal faces. Tonight you will watch the sunset over the exquisite sands of the desert, dine under the stars and overnight in camps
