12th Day

Start : Aqaba
Route : Aqaba
Overnight : Aqaba
Lying at the head of the gulf of Aqaba, the town is the first landfall for literally millions of migrants that use the Rift Valley to aid their migration (ranging from the largest eagles to the smallests of warblers).

You will spend some time looking for passerines in the palms and bushes, An early start is necessary inorder to avoid the heat.

A visit to Aqaba Sewage Works is also arranged. The sight of hundreds of waders,(which could include Marsh Sandpiper and Red necked Phalarope), Herons( may also include Glossy Ibis and Purple Heron ) and gulls of up to 75 different species will leave a lasting impression.

The rest on the day may be used to explore the area or, if you prefer, you can relax on the beach.
