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

  • Good place.. good view... it is better to go in winter to avoid the heat and crowd

  • One of the most beautiful places to visit in Egypt its only 2 hours drive away from cairo and it's easy to reach, something you would never forget

  • Best day in a long time ❤
