After lunch cruise across the desert track towards the man-made lake of Wadi Rayan and the surrounding greenery. We will pass Gebel El Mudawara beside the lower lake and is the perfect place for taking photographs.

Head back through Fayoum Oasis passing by Birket Qarun, the largest lake in the Fayoum depression. We aim to reach Cairo after sunset.
