Wadi El Rayan - Review

Wadi El Rayan is a unique site located in the middle of the desert. There are two huge man-made lakes here and the Egypt’s only majestic waterfall. This oasis has become a main tourist attraction near Cairo. Crowded by locals and tourists alike, it takes a couple of hours to reach here from Cairo. Some parts are dominated by sand dunes whereas other parts are covered with limestone ridges. This protected area is home to numerous birds and local wildlife. Paradise for birdwatchers, Wadi El Rayan should not be missed when visiting Egypt.

Wadi El Rayan, Al Fayyum Reviews

  • One of the best places I have seen in my life is Wadi Al Rayyan. Despite the warm weather, we really enjoyed our tour and safari ride between the golden sands, upper & magic lakes, white mountains, warm breeze and drizzling waterfalls. The people of Fayyoum in general are very generous, welcoming and friendly . . πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ Highly recommended to visit this place but try to avoid summer months and try to go during fall or spring time. If you are interested, you can also arrange for camping overnight in this place. ENJOY 😊😊

  • I really enjoy my time there Must visit this place guys πŸ’•β€

  • Wadi El Rayyan is a protected area. There is a nice waterfalls called Wadi El Rayyan waterfalls. On your way you can visit Fayoum Oasis a best bird watching destination in Egypt. Birds migrate to Fayoum oasis for the lush plants and the waters of Lake Quarun, the largest salt water lake in Egypt.

  • Great place, if not one of the best in Egypt. Few fun activities. You can also camp after getting governmental approvals. You can also fish in the lake if you bring your fishing rod. Overall great family and kids place with real peace of mind and relaxing atmosphere
