Always worth a visit – the wonderful desert landscape including the cultural heritage of the valley of Whales, Wadi El Hitan.
Also the new museum at the entrance will give you insider informations about the evolution and the walk through the remains of the sea-world in the middle of the desert is a „must have seen“ in Egypt.
Guest Review: “I was amazed by the history the place has to tell, the fossils tell a story of whales and dolphins, the rocks tell a story of the earth and describes days that earth when through.
And at the night, you just need to look up to see the whole universe. It is a perfect spot for sky gazing and to have some peace of mind.“
The air is clean and the atmosphere very quiet, serene and just relaxing. Beyond the pottery you see green fields, farm animals and the beautiful lake.
We will have our camp nearby and enjoy barbecue, camping and the special atmosphere of a historical place.
The next day we continue our way to the Magic Lake – blue water in between sanddunes – where we will have lunch, before we return to Cairo.
Optional: Stop-over in the pottery village of Tunis! The small village is mostly inhabited by artists and writers. You walk through the village and all you can see are small art galleries and pottery workshops, with the loveliest array of serving plates, dishes, cups, mirrors and more on display, each piece finely drawn and crafted by hand.
