Appearing on numerous top-travel destinations lists, one of the new seven wonders of the world, Petra, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, is surprisingly easy to get to and affordable to visit.
Over the course of the past 20 years I have had to help steer Wild Frontiers through some seismic events. Born off the back of 9/11, we’ve had to deal with SARS, a world financial crisis, a Russian invasion of the Caucasus, the Icelandic ash cloud, the Arab Spring and Brexit, to name a few.
Visitors to the Caucasus region often overlook Armenia for its better-known neighbours, yet as Wild Frontiers’ Senior Travel Consultant Natalie explains, those who make the leap discover a land of warm welcomes and wild landscapes. She tells us how it captured her heart.
Recently, travellers Anna Quarendon and Richard Draper joined us on the Ethiopia Timkat Festival tour and in place of providing us feedback, Anna wrote us a lovely poem of their journey, accompanied by some beautiful images taken by Richard.
