Oasis of Magic: Fayoum, Bahriya, Siwa - 8 Days Trip

Enjoy Egypt's only waterfalls in Fayoum; one of the best known attractions in Wadi El- Rayan Protected Area. The area conserves large expanses of desert containing a variety of landscapes and formations. Rare and fascinating wild life is found in the desert of Wadi El- Rayan along with fossils of creatures of past epochs and cultural heritage sites from ancient civilizations. Then explore Siwa; one of the world’s last remaining pristine oases, home to spectacular natural landscapes, ancient historical ruins and unique cultural traditions.  Famed as the location of the Oracle of Amon, whom Alexander the Great consulted before continuing his Persian conquest, Siwa exists today much as it always has.  Majestic rock formations, lush groves and brilliant salt lakes that have nurtured and inspired its people since they settled there 12,000 years ago continue to enchant all who set foot in this secluded idyll in Egypt’s Western Desert. So enjoy the vast expanse of sand and rock art through the western oasis and desert. Safari experience in the White _ Black deserts and tour of surprising huge number of Roman temples and medieval forts. Get to know the Berber and Bedouin cultures of the locals.
