Where in the world

Dana Nature Reserve

Dana Biosphere Reserve is situated in the heart of Jordan, where you can explore some of its most dramatic landscapes and wildlife habitats. Located on the northern end of the Great Rift Valley, you will discover four different bio-geographic zones. Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, many of the flora and fauna species found here are rare and endangered. In few other places on the planet can you sight sand cat and Syrian wolf.

As you explore the desert mountains, some of the endangered bird species you may spot include lesser kestrel, chukar partridge and Syrian serin. Mammals include the Nubian ibex and the caracal, a big cat most commonly found further south in Africa’s savannahs. There is also an enormous diversity of plant life, with three completely new species which have been identified here. 

You may also get the chance to meet some of the local inhabitants. The Ata’ta tribe have lived here for many centuries, maintaining their unique culture for generations. Dana Biosphere Reserve is also home to a staggering number of archaeological sites which may be visited.
