Flora & Fauna

Our destinations are home to much more biodiversity than you might think, both in the desert areas and in the wooded Mediterranean regions.
Nature and Bird Watching

The Middle East & North Africa are more diverse than you may think, all of our destinations have areas which are desert and areas which are incredibly green and verdant.  Additionally, you may think of the desert as barren, but in reality there are a whole world of desert animals, insects, birds and plants to discover. Explored at the right times, with the right guides, the desert can be a nature lovers’ paradise, while the region’s forests and wetlands team with biodiversity much of the year.
