The best journeys often start with choosing a surprising route. Wild Guanabana, Omar Samra’s travel company, specializes in providing just such one-of-a-kind adventures, so it’s only natural that it was founded on the same follow-your-heart unconventional wisdom.
Samra launched the company at the height of the 2009 global financial crisis—an uncertain time for a business dependent on people’s willingness to embrace risk. But as the first Egyptian and youngest Arab to summit Everest, Samra had experience surpassing expectations.
Through its ethical and authentic model of adventures, Wild Guanabana lets travelers discover rare vistas on five continents. Among the 30 trips offered, three explore wonders of the Middle East. “Lebanon Goes Eskimo”, a five-day mountain trek among snowy forests and villages, gives hikers the chance to build their own snow caves and igloos. In Jordan, a three-day canyoning and swimming trip explores Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum, while in Egypt, travelers kayak a lake, then hike under waterfalls and over sand dunes.
