Cruise the sand dunes and desert of Egypt’s oldest city on a 12-hour 4WD safari tour of Fayoum. Surf the sand of the Samuel Dunes, and drive through the Rayan Valley to Magic Lake. Swim in the desert oasis before returning to Cairo.


Enjoy a full-day adventure tour to the Fayoum Governorate, located about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Cairo. Travel by comfortable 4WD vehicle to appreciate the rugged landscape at its best.

Following a pick-up from your Cairo accommodation, you will drive along tarmac roads for a short while before you reach the desert. Continue to the Samuel Sand Dunes, shaped by the desert storms. Here, surf on the fine grains of sand by sand board for an adrenaline kick.

Continue to Wadi el-Rayan (Rayan Valley), a natural valley now filled by water that has turned it into a huge manmade lake. Marvel at the only waterfalls in Egypt.

Travel on to Magic Lake, stranded in the middle of the desert behind the sand dunes. Here, you will enjoy lunch, and have some free time to swim. Drive back to Cairo, passing Lake Qaroun and the Fayoum Oasis en route.
