The assorted experiences across the Middle East include ancient UNESCO World Heritage sites, expansive volcanic mountain ranges, fascinating desert cultures, modern bustling cities and market places all with a strong thread of faith and religion.

To minimise our impact on the natural environment we practice the '7 Principals of Leave No Trace', in addition to supporting local economies by employing guides and support staff from local communities. Our Animal Welfare Code of Conduct and Child Welfare Code of Conduct ensure the well-being of animals and children encountered on our school group adventures.



Our educational travel experts are ready to help you tailor an itinerary or service learning project in the Middle East to suit your school’s needs and budget. Contact us today to receive a free consultation.

Hotels

In cities and large towns you will be accommodated in 3-4 star properties that are generally centrally located, atmospheric and reliable and that have a proven record of high-level traveller satisfaction. In smaller towns, hotels may be simpler and the best available. Very occasionally, hotels may have shared bathroom facilities.

Bedouin camps

Found in desert regions in North Africa and Middle East, these are permanent safari camps using traditional Bedouin tents and decor. Bathroom facilities may be basic as water is scarce in the desert. Power is limited to specific hours of the day and is usually by generator when available. Kerosene lanterns or candles provide night time lighting, adding to the ambience.

Camping

Camping refers to any accommodation using mobile tents, ranging from large dome tents to small trekking tents. The local camp crew erect the tents or, on a limited participation safari, guests are expected to assist with this process. Group camping equipment (dining tent, kitchen tent, toilet tent) is supplied. Bathroom facilities are shared, and on rare occasions, bush toileting may be required.
