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
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
Such a great preservative with some breath taking views and many scenes that should be seen at least once in a while, but a personal opinion is taking a tour with you so you can enjoy it with no worries and that can be provided at the entrance or at the magic lake few kilos in. Don't forget about the sand boarding it's one of the musts to do there
It's a desert with some lakes... Don't expect anything to be there, bring everything you need with you.
Amazing place and great food
Good place.. good view... it is better to go in winter to avoid the heat and crowd
