It is located only 15 minutes from the Cairo suburb of Maadi and contains a wide variety of animal life including deer, hares, red foxes, reptiles, Egyptian turtles, twelve species of resident and migrant birds and 64 kinds of plants. Especially at night it is magic.

Get ready for a unique opportunity to release the old and unwanted. As a matter of fact, ancient civilizations recognized already that everything on our planet is influenced by the moon's natural rhythms. Consequently this special night is perfect for aligning with these cosmic cycles.

Surprisingly, the landscape, illuminated by the moon, transforms into a mystical realm where shadows and light dance in harmony. Also as we hike under the full moon, we'll immerse ourselves in the tranquility and beauty of the natural world.

Generally, the full moon has long been a time for reflection and renewal. Undquestionably, it's an ideal moment to let go of past burdens and embrace new beginnings. Furthermore our hike will include moments of guided meditation and quiet reflection. Not only  it allows participants to connect deeply with themselves  but also to feel the lunar energy.

Hiking under the full moon in Wadi Degla is not only a spiritual journey but also a chance to explore the stunning geology and diverse ecosystem of the area. The wadi, a valley carved by ancient rivers, is home to unique rock formations and a variety of plant and animal species. The moonlight accentuates these natural wonders, making for an unforgettable experience.
