The Mujib Biosphere Reserve is the world's lowest nature reserve, at 410 meters below sea level and situated in the deep Mujib Valley, not far east of the Dead Sea. The reserve's spectacular landscapes stretch to the Karak and Madaba mountains in the north and south, with some areas exceeding 900 metres above sea level.
The reserve extends to the Karak mountains to the north and Madaba to the south, reaching 900 meters above sea level in some places. This 1,300-meter difference in altitude, combined with a constant flow of water all year round and coming from seven tributaries, ensures that the Wadi Mujib has magnificent biodiversity, still to be explored and documented. Over 300 plant species,10 carnivorous species, and numerous species of sedentary and migratory birds have been recorded.
Some of the most remote mountain areas and valleys are difficult to reach, thus offering safe havens for rare species of felines, goats, and other mountain animals. The sandstone slopes of Mujib are the ideal habitat for one of the most beautiful mountain goats in the world, the Nubian ibex. Note: Wadi Mujib and canyons throughout the Kingdom are closed during the winter months.
