Petra was once the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom and is best known for its 45-meter high temple, which is known as the Al Khazneh which is better known as the Treasury and boasts an ornate ancient Greek style facade.
If photos of Petra look familiar, you may have seen Petra and the Al Khazneh feature in the film “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”.
If you’ve always wanted to visit Africa and love the idea of being able to enjoy a luxurious, tranquil beach vacation, it’s well worth considering heading to Mozambique. Which is an island nation which is quickly increasing in popularity, in part due to the plethora of eco-resorts which have sprung up on Mozambique’s picture-perfect coastline.
If you’re interested in history, it’s also worth tearing yourself away from the beach to view some of Mozambique’s colonial era ruins. Which remain from Portugal’s rule of Mozambique.
If you’d like a chance to see wild dugongs, head to Mozambique’s southern coast where you’ll find protected marine sanctuaries which are home to dozens of wild dugongs.
