We proceed to seethe Temple of Oracle built on the 26th Dynasty by king Amsis, this temple where Alexander the Great became son of Amun. The temple is located on the top of a small hill on the town of Aghurmi. After we go to Temple of Amun (Temple of Um Ubiada) 5 minutes after Oracle Temple, we see the final wall remaining of the 30th Dynasty temple. You will have the chance to examine the Hilegrapchis writings over the wall.  Later we go refresh in Cleopatra’s Bath, a natural spring where queen Cleopatra swim.

Day 3: Siwa to Bahariya (450 Km off road)

  • Breakfast in hotel.
  • Great adventure through the desert route from Siwa is the way to go to Bahariya. From Siwa Oasis the route passes through .Sitra Oasis, beside Nuwamisa Oasis with its picturesque lake, and Bahrein Oasis, with not one but two lakes. With the chalky white Areg Oasis on the left it continues north over the dunes to Bahariya. Covering 400 kilometers (250 miles), this is a route with no people only the silence is dominating everywhere.
  • Arrival in Bahariya oasis.  Dinner and overnight in hotel.

Day 4: Bahariya Oasis – Black Desert- Crystal Mountain- White Desert (140 Km with stops)

  • Breakfast in hotel.
  • We leave Bahariya behind in our way to a different world of Black and White. We approach Sahara Suda, the Black Desert, a favorite safari destination. The ground to the right and left of the road is covered with black stones. We climb a 15 meter Sand Dune by 4WD and stop to take pictures of these mixtures of colors. Then we see Al Marsous volcanic Hill.
  • 37 km we reach Al Hyaz small village that during the Roman era this area was very prosperous. Many of the current families were originally from Libya. We take our picnic lunch in a shaded place; also we will have the chance to get refreshment by swimming in one of the cold springs nearby.
  • We drive to the most famous of the formations is the Crystal Mountain, actually a large rock made entirely of quartz. It sits right beside the main road.
  • Bit by bit the yellow desert sands east of the road start to become pierced by chalky rock formations.s you get further into the 300-sq-km White Desert Protectorate, you’ll notice that the surreal shapes start to take on familiar forms: chickens, ostriches, camels, hawks and other uncanny shapes abound.Two flat-topped mountains known as the Twin Peaks, a key navigation point for travelers. A favorite destination: the view from the top of the surrounding symmetrical hills, all shaped like giant anthills, is spectacular. Kids will delight in coming up with shape associations, and photographers will fill up their memory cards trying to capture the brilliant hues of the setting sun reflecting off the inselbergs’ shiny surfaces. Waking up amongst them is one of the highlights of any camping trip into the desert
  • BBQ Dinner. Overnight in tent.

Day 5: White Desert – Bahariya – Valley of Whales

  • Breakfast in camp.
  • Drive back to Bahariya oasis and then to the Valley of Whales.
  • we proceed on the city more to see Lake Qaroun that covers 214 square Km at 45 m below sea level. The lake is a destination of birdlife: around 88 species including flamingos have a colony on the horn island at the end of the lake. We take a boat tour through the lake to enjoy the fascinating landscapes of the water and green scene dominant over the banks of the lake.
  • We go later 15 km out of Fayoum to The Wadi Rayyan Protected Area : a result of project of Egyptian Government to create 03 lakes on the Wadi. Wadi Rayyan is particularly conducive to large colonies of birds. We will enjoy the Waterfalls where one lake drains into the other. It  is wide life heaven and beauty spot.
  • We take picnic lunch in Wadi el Rayaan.
  • Some 55km further south into the desert is Wadi al-Hittan (Valley of the Whales), where the skeletons of primitive whales have been lying for about 40 million years.  The fossils consist of amphibious mammals deposited by the swirling waters and Marine life stranded when the sea receded.
