Located in Egypt’s Western Desert, the Bahariya and Farafra depressions don’t even cover 1% of the Egyptian Sahara. Yet, they have some of the rarest landscapes and geological formations in the entire country. This is not the place where archaeologists come to find ancient tombs or hidden treasures; rather, this is a destination for dinosaurs fossils and remnants of other species that we have not seen for millions of years.
