Muzziena Bedouin Tribe originally from Saudi Arabia, now live between Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Palestine and Sinai. This tribal group occupies most of South Sinai and represents the largest group of Bedouin People in Sinai.

The town of Dahab is home to one of the largest populations of Muzziena in Sinai, Bedouin people have lived in this town (once a small oasis and fishing village) for over 800 years. The Bedouin people in Sinai today face similar challenges to their neighbours throughout the Middle East. Their way of life has changed much and they are losing much of their cultural heritage.
