Press/Media: Expert Comment


There seems to be more disagreement than agreement on whether eco-lodges even exist in Egypt.

This confusion is normal, according to Amir Gohar, a tourism and land use planning expert. There is no straight forward definition of the term eco-lodge worldwide, he says. In other words, the term should instead be viewed as a continuum.

"The more environmental a lodge is the more you lean towards the ‘eco’ side of the gradient," says Gohar.
