In June 2016, I bought a donkey in Wadi Musa, Jordan. I travelled with "Rahaal" in 9 days from Petra to Karak. The condition was very hard due temperatures of almost 40°C, Ramadan and lack of natural water, also dangerous animals like scorpions and snakes. I slept on couches in unfinished visitor centres and a UNHCR-tent. According to the Jordanian Police, I supposed to be the first woman who dared a journey like that. Donkey Rahaal became my closest animal friend and I could look behind the curtain of the culture and daily life of the Jordanians. It was my greatest adventure in my life. --------- I do not have the right for the music on the video.

We decided to be lazy and ride the donkey up to the Monastery in Petra, Jordan, rather than climb the 850 steps. You can see the deep valley on the left hand side...

Za'al was the name of our Jordanian Bedouin guide who led our Dana to Petra trekking route. In Arabic, Za'al means upset or unhappy! What a name, ha?! Contrary to his name, Za'al was one pleasant old man who, despite how little he had, seemed always happy and, heartily, looked after us for 5 days. All along the trek, he had his donkey along with him and the special bond between them was obvious. The donkey's name was "Happy", or, to be precise, "Habby" as pronounced by Za'al. "Unhappy" and Habby were one of the highlights of this fabulous tour in Jordan and this little video is a sweet memory. http://www.terhaal.com/dana-to-petra-trek-jordan

Hundreds of thousands of horses and donkeys are suffering overseas due to tourists, yet many British holidaymakers are unaware of their impact and how to act responsibly when they encounter working animals abroad. While British beach donkeys are regulated - no passengers over eight stone, a day off each week and a one hour lunch break - overseas it is a different story. Egypt and Jordan have been recognised by the Brooke, the UK's leading overseas equine welfare charity, as popular tourist destinations that widely use horses and donkeys for tourist trade. With recent ONS statistics showing that the number of Brits travelling to Jordan doubled last year and that nearly half a million British people travelled to Egypt within the first nine months of 2008, it is important that British travellers are aware of the issues concerning the use of working animals abroad. Horses and donkeys are used to taxi tourists across difficult and dangerous terrain to historical landmarks. The animals are often over-worked, under-watered and under-fed, and have the added burden of frequently carrying passengers who are too heavy for them. Haggling is common as credit crunch tourists negotiate rock bottom prices and quibble over the last pound. Owners, whose livelihoods are dependent on these earnings, are often left short changed and are tempted to overwork the animals in their desperation to bring in enough money to feed their family. The Brooke has released video footage and images from popular British tourist destinations including the Temples of Luxor and the Ancient City of Petra, showing that many tourists disregard the welfare of animals whilst they have fun in the sun. The Brooke is calling on all tourists to take action against this anguish by following a simple code when using working horses and donkeys abroad. Key points include: * Match your size with the size of the animal - if you are heavy or tall, think whether a small donkey can really take your weight * Pay a fair price for a ride - bargaining means the animal will have to work harder and longer to bring in an income * One person per animal when riding * The number of people shouldn't exceed the number of wheels when using a carriage horse * Don't be distracted by decorations - check for hidden sores, wounds or prominent bones Kimberly Wells, from the Brooke's Animal Welfare Team, who wrote the code states: "It may seem obvious, but it's being ignored. We see first hand the painful results - exhaustion, injuries, dehydration, heat stress, beatings and wounds - overworked animals suffering for tourism. Tourists can have a hugely positive impact on how communities treat their animals so we are urging them to play their part and work with us to reduce animal suffering across the world. Every tourist has the power to reduce animal affliction - both by following these simple guidelines and also by flagging up concerns to local authorities and tour operators, which will encourage a needed change in poor animal welfare practices." The Brooke's lifesaving work helps ease animal suffering across the developing world while supporting the livelihoods of the owners who depend on their animals to bring in an income.
