What To Expect

Wadi El-Rayan
Beginning with a pickup from your hotel or another designated place in Cairo or Giza between 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM, we will be boarding a comfortable air-conditioned car for a pleasant 100-minute journey to the Wadi El Rayan Desert.

3 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Upon arrival, you have the chance to take in the breathtaking views of the Wadi El Rayan waterfalls in the center of the desert, inhaling in the majesty of the tremendous water cascades that provide a dramatic contrast to the surrounding dry terrain. If you're lucky, you could see some desert animals, such as the slender-horned gazelle, before stopping to photograph the stunning Mudawara Mountains.

Continuing the journey, you shall experience the exhilaration of a desert adventure. After boarding the 4X4 car for a dune bashing adventure, enjoy the thrill of gliding over yellow, soft sand before stopping to enjoy sandboarding by strapping yourself to the sandboard and sliding down the dazzling, yellow sand at a rapid rate.

Later, you shall board a camel riding across the gorgeous desert environment like a Bedouin adventurer before stopping at a Bedouin desert camp for an extravagant and tasty BBQ Lunch.

Our guide, Aswany, picked us up at our air BnB and drove us out to the desert where we had AMAZING views overlooking lakes, and sand dunes. We swam in “Magic Lake”. And had a DELICIOUS lunch! Aswany was very informative and friendly and made the trip that much more special. This was a very UNIQUE experience!

Incredible!! Ahmed Zaki was our guide. He showed up on time, made us feel comfortable and safe and was very informative. They picked us up drove us to a special location where we were surrounded by sand dunes, magical lakes, friendly people and a really cool 4x4 experience. Sand-boarding was fun and they prepared a delicious BBQ. Also drove us through the middle of the desert up and down these sand dunes in a luxurious Landcruiser, should be called Sandcruiser . It was exhilarating. Khalid was our driver from and back to the hotel. Thank you
