In Cairo, Egypt's eclectic capital, you visit the ancient Pyramids and the mysterious Sphinx, before marvelling at the huge number of treasures in the Egyptian Museum. The collection of mummies is also worth a look (optional).Travelling down the Sinai Peninsula you visit the pilgrimage site of St. Catherine's Monastery and have the opportunity to climb Mt. Sinai at sunrise. Your finale in Egypt is a camel trek by the Red Sea and snorkelling at relaxed, colourful Dahab.Journeying across the Red Sea, you continue into Jordan to Wadi Rum. Here you camp under the stars and gaze up at dramatic rock formations. You will also explore this incredible scenery on an exciting jeep safari. The fabled city of Petra is carved out of the very rock of which Jordan is formed. You have a full day to explore this ancient site by horse and on foot. Catching your first glimpse of the Treasury is a sight never to be forgotten.Dana Nature Reseve is a national treasure best explored on foot on one of the many trails here. Following a visit to the Crusader castle of Kerak, your trip ends with a couple of days relaxing at the Dead Sea
