Go on a full-day desert adventure from Cairo by a private jeep. See the waterfalls at Wadi Rayan, and tour to Wadi Hitan Protected Area (Valley of the Whales), about 90 kilometers from Fayoum.
What to Expect
Early morning pick-up is from your hotel. Drive by air-conditioned private vehicle to Fayoum oasis where you will meet your Bedouin local guide and start the jeep ride to Wadi Rayan - a natural depression, located in the Western Desert, 42 meters below sea level. Visit the amazing waterfalls.
Continue to Wadi Hitan, also known as Valley of the Whales. On the way stop at Mudawara Mountain, a magnificent spot overlooking the beautiful landscape below where deep blue waters meet the golden yellow sand. Then explore the national park of Wadi Hitan – a fascinating area, placed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Considered as an open museum, it dates back 40 million years and is the most significant place in the world to demonstrate the evolution of whales. More than 400 types of whale and sea cow skeletons, other bones, shells and plant fossils have been identified here, some of them preserved in soft rocks.
After the jeep tour you will break for an afternoon Bedouin lunch then transfer back to Cairo.
