Towards the Jara Caves

After a day’s traveling from Bahariya you will finally arrive at the Jara Caves, or El Caf as the Bedouin call it. These are the largest dry caves in Egypt - it is easily the size of a church down there, with great thick stalactites hanging down. The floor is sandy and tracked by beetles Don’t worry about snakes and scorpions- it is far too dry for these creatures- and if you are carrying a torch everything alive down there will hide away from you. Inside the cave are a few prehistoric carvings of antelope and giraffe.
