The good thing about wildlife trekking is that it doesn’t actually feel like you are trekking as you are too busy looking out for the wildlife itself! A walking safari in Timbavati Private Reserve, next to Kruger National Park in South Africa, proved a very special experience and a total contrast to 4WD game-viewing – I will never forget virtually tripping over a rhino (not sure who was more shocked!). Find out for yourself on our Kruger Breakaway tour. In Borneo I found myself going all ‘Livingstone and Stanley’ trekking through incredibly dense jungle to spot rare species. The night treks also provided some phenomenally exciting moments, spotting nocturnal species going about their nightly business. Check out our Sabah Wildlife Explorer which has a real emphasis on wildlife and the environment.
Again, totally different to tropical or high-mountain trekking. Jordan offers a superb mix of sightseeing around its numerous biblical sites plus the famous red-rose city of Petra which I entered via the narrow ‘siq’ canyon à la Indiana Jones- a classic example of having to walk to get there (unless you hop on an over-priced calesh/horse-drawn carriage). However it was trekking through the inspirational desert scenery of Wadi Rum and camping overnight with the Bedouin that really took my imagination. And it was nice not to wake to freezing temperatures for once! See our Jordan Explorer tour. Morocco too offers some great desert trekking – from the heat of Marrakech you can find yourself deep in the heart of the Sahara Desert on a camel trek to shivering at 4068 m in the High Atlas within a week. Combine culture with some really off the beaten track trekking on both our Highlights of Morocco and High Atlas Trek.
