A walk into the wild side at the Wadi Al- Mujib Natural Reserve
This reserve lies adjacent to the Dead Sea, and is one of Jordan’s most exciting natural sites. It contains a narrow canyon, reminiscent of Petra’s Siq through which a river flows. Across thousands of years, the water has formed several large caves and waterfalls inside the canyon. The trip requires the participants to swim, walk and climb through occasional rushing water! Anyone who’s in search of adventure is strongly advised to do it.
Diving in the Red Sea
Red Sea Diving is the most catered for sport in the Red Sea Resort City of Aqaba. The coral reefs there offer some of the best-kept tropical underwater Eco systems in the world. Beginner and advanced courses with experienced diving instructors and equipment rental facilities are available. Non-divers can experience first class snorkelling at several sites. The water in Aqaba is warm during the summer and spring seasons. Please take into account that you are not allowed to fly for 24 hours after your dive, for safety reasons.
