On Zegrahm Expeditions’ inaugural Voyage Through the Red Sea, enjoy the exclusive opportunity to attend a special lecture by His Excellency Senator Akel E.

In 2005 His Majesty King Abdullah II appointed him a member of the House of Senate, where he currently serves as Chairman. He is also a member of the Foreign Relations, Health and Environment, and Education House committees.

Senator Biltaji is one of Jordan’s strongest public speakers, and can offer valuable insight on issues relating to the country’s image, its holy sites, and their protection of heritage. He also happens to be an exceptional singer, serenading Hillary and Chelsea Clinton in 2009.
