Frequently Asked Questions

Spotting wildlife in any of the reserves is not guaranteed, the animals we set out to find roam free in wild and semi wild environments. However, we will ensure to maximize your chances of spotting these animals.

Jordan is home to vast wildlife, the country is a very important migratory route for many bird and marine species, the red sea is home to over 500 species of fish and other marine life, while Azraq hosts over 300 species of migratory birds. Apart from the vast Jordanian wilderness, at a SeaMonkey adventure, we maximize your chances of also spotting wildlife such as Arabian oryx, water buffaloes, raptors, sea turtles, reef fish, rock hyrax, desert foxes & Nubian ibex. Jordan is also home to rare animals, during our adventures we will also be on thrilling lookouts in Jordan’s wilderness, where elusive creatures like striped hyenas, sand cats, Eurasian badgers, and even majestic whale sharks dwell. Their shy and skittish nature adds a touch of mystery to the hunt, an adventure that, with a stroke of luck, could place you among the privileged few who’ve witnessed their enchanting presence.

Jordan’s best weather is during spring and fall. During spring, the greenery is at its highest level as well, however expeditions run all year long and wildlife can be spotted any time of the year. We recommend that you check any extreme conditions like rain, strong wind or sand storms prior to booking your flights as expeditions cannot operate under extreme conditions.

SeaMonkey expeditions is the first exclusive wildlife tour agency that operates from Jordan. We make special arrangements with guides to maximize your opportunity to spot wildlife based on our knowledge and expertise which you could not get from any other booking agency.

This heavily depends on your specific trip type. We generally recommend you wear comfortable clothes that are sturdy and can resist outdoor environments. Running shoes are not recommended for hiking trips. We will spend time under the sun whether you are out on safari, hiking, camping or on a sea expedition, so be sure to pack sunscreen and hats.

No. Pets are not allowed to enter any of the reserves, this is to maximize your possibility of wildlife sightings as well as the safety of your pet.
