  • Djara cave is considered a natural masterpiece, and one of the most attractive areas in the oases, It’s located
  • just 240 Km southeast of Farafra in the mountainous region.

  • It’s age reaches up to 40 million years old, It’s one of the rarest caves in the world, it features a limestone sediments dangling from its ceiling up and down in the form of foliage and others on the shape of the artichoke fruit leaves not to mention “Ghanameh” on its ceiling which resemble meticulous draftsmanship on glass or metal, the cave entrance is on the ground level and it doesn’t seem to desert explorers that it is a cave, the entrance diameter reaches up to 18 inch and it’s depth is only 25 meters and the soft sand fills it’s entrance, Inside there is a large dome hanging from it, What it’s known as candlesticks, yarns or Christmas tree, On the floor of the cave inside there are engraved foot prints of foxes which live there mainly during the day and then come out of it at night searching for food in the desert. And although that Bedouins discovered the cave during the trading activities in the region in the ancient times when they used to spend their resting times there during their travels from the oases to the Nile valley and also during the Hajj season, the formal discovery to it was in 1874 and was registered on behalf of the German scientist “Jehardr Rolfes” during his journey that he recorded in his book “Three months in the Libyan desert” , he was on his way to reach “Kufra” the Libyan oasis when his guide led him to a place called Gera. After a century of time, The German scientist “Carlo Bergman” decided to rediscover the cave with the help of Bedouins in 1989, its first historical scan on scientific basis to the draftsmanship inside the cave was in 1990 by a group of specialists in this area of Cologne, Berlin and Cairo. Starting from 1990 to 2002 these draftsmanship and trappings have been studied intensively within an integrated science project. When you enter Djara cave you receive a plastic bag known as “the German bag” so that the visitors are able to register their names and data. Inside the cave there is also a book which contains the history of its discovery and pictures of its German discoverer as well as the names and members of German delegations that won’t end with the help of Bedouins. Djara cave shows the proof of the soft life and abundant water, which dominate the
    Western desert in ancient times.
  • The cave has magical dimensions that grew up as a natural result of pure water and the climate of the dry desert over millions of years.

It is unlike any other cave in its formation and the shape of its wonderful sediments. These descending and ascending sedimentary forms look more like frozen waterfalls. They are the result to millions of cubic meters of underground water which leaked out through the desert sand over millions of years and created this underground cave and then deposited and condensed due to intensive heat. Wall sculptures in this cave however represent unusual activities of this area’s human such as hunting and playing insuring that these sculptures back to the age of wet Holocene.

In that time those who inhabited that area were hunters and also practiced the process of gathering and picking fruit, the sculptures also suggest that Djara area was once inhabited by people and was full of life and prosperity.
