This is our getaway place in Maadi, Cairo, Egypt. Maadi is a suburb of Cairo and Wadi Degla is the closest thing you can come close to a park. Don't expect to see great landscapes or incredible scenery, it's a rocky terrain park with one big main trail from beginning to end of the park (around 13.5 KM long) with loads of mountain biking and walking trials on the side. It's great for walking and cycling or nice bbq out with family and friends.
I've been going there for the past 25 years of my life, it's definitely our getaway from the polluted air of Cairo, we mountain bike, walk, picnic, etc... Air there is a bit better than in the rest of the city. Without it for some of us (the outdoor enthusiasts) it can make living in Cairo a very difficult scenario.
You could camp overnight but after you get your permits from the EEAA office in Maadi (behind the Sofitel Hotel in Maadi).
We would like to promote a nice clean sustainable park for everyone to enjoy, so please promote it in that direction, it needs a major push in the management and financing part.
Enjoy it and don't forget to leave nothing behind please.
