The dawn of many of the world’s most vital civilizations happened here. Egyptian pyramids stand as some of the most majestic Wonders of the World. The mighty Nile river traverses Egypt north to south - thousands of years of history found along its shores. The phenomenal city of Petra, carved out of solid rock, lies deep in the mountainous Jordan desert. Syria's ancient Palmyra stands well-preserved, while Beirut, Lebanon has seen over 5,000 years of history. Morocco, Tunisia and Libya's proximity at the edge of Africa on the Mediterranean placed their cultures and people in the path of dramatic and diverse impact - Roman, Spanish, French, African and Arab influences have left their mark. A study in contrast, Dubai is the fastest growing place on earth - an icon for a modern age of innovative design and luxurious living.
The allure of this strikingly beautiful region and its compelling people and culture captured our hearts centuries ago. Our close relationships have endured - transcending the changes and challenges throughout history.
