Bahariya Oasis is the first real desert oasis in Egypt. It is located 365 Kilometer south-west of Cairo, which is about a 4.5 hour drive from Cairo. Bahariya has attracted many travelers over the years in search of peace, spirituality and desert freedom.
Wadi Al-Hitan “Valley of the Whales” is a paleontological site in El Fayoum, about 150 km southwest of Cairo. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in July 2005 for its hundreds of fossils of some of the earliest forms of whales. The site reveals evidence for the explanation of one of the greatest mysteries of the evolution of whales: the emergence of the whale as an ocean-going mammal from a previous life as a land-based animal. No other place in the world yields the number, concentration and quality of such fossils, as is their accessibility and setting in an attractive and protected landscape.This is why it was added by the UNESCO to the list of protected World Heritage sites.
