El Dakhla Oasis also known as the Inner Oasis or Oasis Magna, Dakhla is situated between Farafra Oasis and Kharga Oasis and is said to be the most beautiful of the oases. It is above sea level and is well supplied with water from over 500 springs and pools. With pink cliffs to the north and lush green gardens, this is a truly picturesque spot. Dates and figs, mulberries and citrus fruits are grown in Dakhla. It is thought that up until only about 7000 years ago there was a large lake at Dakhla which provided grazing for elephants, ostriches and buffaloes until it dried up and the sands moved in.
