Day 1: Cairo – Fayoum – Wadi El Hitan

We pick you up from the hotel in Cairo to drive to Fayoum. We will stop to visit the pharaonic temple of Qasr el Sagha. Although never completed, its construction is unique in Egypt in irregularly shaped blocks. It resembles the Inca structures of South America. From here, head to the remains of Dima city, originally a Greco-Roman town, in the heart of the arid desert, where you can enjoy a picnic lunch. After lunch, head to the fascinating and remote UNESCO World Heritage sight at Wadi El Hitan, or Whale Valley, with its abundance of fossilized whale skeletons. It was over 100 years ago, and it is an important site to demonstrate the evolution of the whales from a land to a marine existence. Lunch meals will be during tours. Camping in Wadi El Hitan and overnight stay.

Day 2: Wadi El Hitan – Wadi El Rayan – Cairo

Overnight stay in a desert camp. After breakfast, we drive to Wadi El Rayan, famous for its waterfalls created from drainage programs in the 1970s. Visit one of the falls, then we go through the dunes and beautiful scenery as you head to the pottery village of Tunis on Lake Quarun – Egypt’s largest saltwater lake. Visit the pottery schools and shops founded by a Swiss potter in 1970. Enjoy a picnic lunch before returning to Cairo.
