The Mountain People
The traditional way of life for the Jebeliya tribe is becoming extinct. They are nomadic Bedouins living and moving from place to place in the Sinai Desert. In recent years there has been a mass influx of tourists, and the attraction of profits in tourism has enveloped the area.
There has also been an increasing of government control and checkpoints making it harder to move. Almost all of the Jebeliya tribe has ceased their traditional nomadic existence, opting instead to move into housing and sell goods and services to tourists who pass through in droves.
