If you never go, you Jeddah know


ExPLorE Worldwide, represente­d in Australia and New Zealand by TTC’s Adventure World Travel brand, has expanded its range of tours to Saudi Arabia for the first time.

The operator’s new 12-night Explore the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia adventure includes fourwheel-drives in the desert, visits to the bustling camel market at Buraidah, and exploratio­ns of the mountainou­s region of Al Bahah.

“It’s not every day that we’re able to launch a brand new destinatio­n, so we’re really excited to introduce our new Kingdom of Saudi Arabia tour,”

Explore’s Managing Director, Michael Edwards said.

“The birthplace of Islam, it has a rich cultural history, and is jam-packed with historic sites but it’s also a country of surprising natural diversity, from vast deserts to perhaps less-expected mountain ranges and lush, verdant valleys,” he added.

The tour also features walks down the twisting alleyways of Jeddah’s UNESCO-listed old town, the 600-year-old marble village of Thee Ain, as well as an overnight stay in a desert camp at the historical AlUla.

Prices lead in from $7,040 per person and include 10 nights’ accommodat­ion, two nights’ camping in fixed tents, most meals and expert guides.
