Wadi El Rayan is a natural depression located in the western desert, Wadi Rayan consists of two lakes connected by Egypt's only waterfalls, formed in 1970 by an overflow of drainage water from the farmlands in Fayoum. Late Lunch will be served at a good quality restaurant. After that transfer back to Cairo.
