Zowara Eco lodge and The Fayoum Nature and Culture House

To spend a weekend without electricity at the Zowara ecolodge in Fayoum, Egypt, is your chance to reconnect with nature amid brilliant landscapes.

The ecolodge’s campground and its half dozen huts overlook a stretch of the Sahara. And they look very charming on Zowara with ethnic blankets atop the cozy beds.


Zowara is one of seven ecolodges in Egypt and follows specific standards of recycling waste, building with local materials, hiring people from the local community and using only renewable energy.

Head to nearby Magic Lake for some sandboarding down the dunes, and take a brief hike to get a view of the waters bellow. Because it’s right inside the Wadi El Rayan natural protectorate, Zowara ecolodge is centrally located for hiking, kayaking, cycling, sandboarding and bird watching. 

It has also hosted yoga and meditation retreats, attracting teachers with its positive vibes and serene atmosphere.

The rooms are small but comfortable with unique local touches and an unpaved sandy floor.
Zowara also has a camping area that holds up to 1000 people.

Collect some rocks and take photos. Enjoy the solitude and the rare moments of quiet immersed in nature.


The nature – culture house is implemented through the UNDP Egypt project, the Egyptian Italian Environmental Cooperation Project - EIECP III and funded by CIB Egypt.

An excellent cooperation with the local community in Fayoum, civil society, and the private sector linking nature and cultural heritage.


The Fayoum Nature Culture House is all about preserving the history of the area, and the culture of Fayoum's local people. If you’ve ever wanted to go sky gazing in the desert, and relish in the beauty of nature, this museum will enrich your experience by teaching you everything you need to know about your newly-found haven.
