Day 1- Cairo - Fayoum Whale Valley
From Cairo we drive by jeep south towards Fayoum, the largest oasis in the Western Desert. We stop at Lake Qaroun for a tour by felucca (half an hour) and then head to Wadi Rayan where we visit the spring and waterfall. After having lunch, we continue into the desert. We reach Wadi Al Hitan (otherwise known as the Valley of Whales), a surreal region where huge boulders seem to be capped with an imaginary icing of thick caramelized syrup, which appears to ooze down their sides. Within this extraordinary landscape the fossil remains of Zeuglodon have been found � whales that existed in the Fayoum over 40 million years ago. We spend the night camping out under a canopy of stars. Overnight Camping.

Day 2- Whale Valley - Cairo
Breakfast and departure to Cairo. End of our services.

Wadi Al-Hitan, Whale Valley, in the Western Desert of Egypt, contains invaluable fossil remains of the earliest, and now extinct, suborder of whales, Archaeoceti. These fossils represent one of the major stories of evolution: the emergence of the whale as an ocean-going mammal from a previous life as a land-based animal. This is the most important site in the world for the demonstration of this stage of evolution. It portrays vividly the form and life of these whales during their transition. The number, concentration and quality of such fossils here is unique, as is their accessibility and setting in an attractive and protected landscape. The fossils of Al-Hitan show the youngest archaeocetes, in the last stages of losing their hind limbs. Other fossil material in the site makes it possible to reconstruct the surrounding environmental and ecological conditions of the time.
