Walking safari makes you more welcoming towards nature, keeps you alert of your surroundings, and enables you to witness the clarity and sound of nature and wildlife first hand.

The Lost City of Petra and Wadi Rum Desert, Jordan

Petra is today one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and should be on every adventure seeker’s list. More so, when in Jordan, do visit the Wadi Rum Desert, also popularly called the Valley of the Moon. This desert is cut into sandstone and granite rock and is the largest Wadi in Jordan.
