‘The main objective of the festival is to provide an opportunity for representatives of the different tribes which were living across the Egyptian desert for many years to meet and celebrate diversity,’ Walid Ramadan, one of the organizers, told the German Press Agency dpa, shortly before the festival came to an end.
The two-day event, which took place in Marsa Alam, some 175 kilometres south of the Red Sea resort of Hurghada, also attracted Egyptians and tourists.
The festival allowed them to find out more about tribal law and customs, ecosystems and ecotourism and native plant medicines.
Each tribe also showed off its own local dances, poetry, food and sports.
