Egyptian Sidekick Fayoum Tour Motto

Wadi Al-Hitan National Park

This Wadi, or ‘oasis’ is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on account of the whale bones scattered all about. The skeletons are remarkably preserved and attest to the presence of an ancient Ocean right where there is now nothing but picturesque desert. The fossils, and the adjoining museum of climate change are an extremely progressive exhibit for a country like Egypt which has consistently prioritized economic growth and development over sustainable approaches.

Wadi Al-Rayan Protected Area

The Wadi Al-Rayan Protected Area, is a series of lakes, rivers, wetlands, and most notably – waterfalls. With the ‘magic mountain’ to the West, lake Qaroun to the North, the area is a birth watcher’s paradise. The whole area is a natural depression in the desert and has been exploited for agricultural purposes. if you are looking to get a glimpse of authentic Egyptian life, farming, fishing, and experience natural contrasts of the desert and the arable land, this area will not disappoint.
