Petra, Petra, Petra. For the majority of visitors to Jordan Petra is the main reason for going and the number one tourist destination. However, for thousands of repeat visitors to Jordan, Petra is just a place to pass by with perhaps a short stop. These visitors regularly pass though in Spring and Autum as they make their bi - annual migration from the cold northerly regions to the warmth of Africa and Arabia. These are of course wide variety of migrating birds that pass through Jordan on a regular basis.
Luckily for us these feathered visitors pass by most of the main tourist sites in Jordan and some of the lesser visited but equally enchanting sites in Jordan. So visiting Jordan on a Bird Watching Holiday will give you the opportunity to visit some of the most fantastic tourist sites in Jordan with added bonus of witnessing the bi annual migration of thousands of birds.
