  • The valley of the whales reveals a whole unknown side the Egypt. A cost to the history centre and a walk through, is a great way to experience yet another face of Egypt.

  • A very well designed and interesting small museum and then a clearly marked walking route around the various fossils in the desert. The slight breeze made this bearable but on a hot day it would be challenging. Bring water! The place is fascinating and well worth a visit.
  • Lots of desert to explore as well as a museum and walking trail to view whale fossils. The park is unique because the fossils have been left out in the desert exposed to the elements instead of placed into a museum. 7.5/10
