Where to watch birds in Fayoum

Wetlands are probably the most important habitat for birds in Egypt. one of the best wetlands to spot rare birds are Wadi El-Rayan protected area and Qarun Lake Nature Reserve in Fayoum oasis. these are the best places to see herons, egrets, Purple Gallinule, Painted snipe, waders and pied Kingfisher. Wetland fringes, especially where there are bushes and reeds, will be host to many other species as well.

Our three day tour to Fayoum oasis is designed for all bird watchers either novice or advanced, so you get the most observations possible during your tour to the unique and picturesque areas of Fayoum oases.

Look out for species such as the black-winged stilt, the white pelican, the little grebe, the red-necked phalarope, and the western marsh harrier. After the 1st morning tour we return to our hotel for breakfast and some rest. In the afternoon we will continue our bird watching activities and go to the nearby Mudawara Mountain for more bird watching opportunities. Keep an eye out for the Sinai rosefinch, the Barbary falcon, and the Egyptian vulture.

Путешествие в Каир

Чтобы посмотреть Каир, надо провести здесь не один день. Мы решили совместить экскурсии по Каиру с другими интересными местами в окрестностях города, очень хотелось побывать на природе. поэтому мы включили в свой тур поездку в оазис Фаюм, как буд-то побывали в другом мире, пустыня - это совсем не то, что мы думали! Потрясающие виды на дюны вместе с озерами - необыкновенные пейзажи. Обязательно отправляйтесь в Фаюм, если будите в Каире
