Trek 11: Ein Kid (1-2 days)

Ein Kid is a secluded, pretty oasis at a narrow, rocky part of Wadi Kid, home to only a few people. You can reach it from several directions from the Nasb area or from Wadi Rumhan. The walks start in Ulad Said country but from the oasis it is Muzeina territory. From the oasis trekkers usually take a 4×4 (you have to organise it in advance as there are no vehicles here) or possibly get a car further in the wadi at the settlement of Seil Riem. In theory you could walk from here all the way to the sea at the Nabq Protectorate in two more days, described in the next trek, but make sure to check with local Muzeina Bedouin if it is possible at the time as some areas might be restricted, and until the end of the walk stay with a Bedouin guide!
