About Amira

Amira's adventure started with her mum, taking her on adventures when she was younger, her mum introduced her to the outdoors but her love for the mountains and the real journey began later on in her life. 


Amira's journey began in the mountains, finding solace and healing after personal challenges and a divorce. Through her experiences, she discovered profound spiritual connections with her faith and healing within nature. 

Over the years, Amira has studied the intersection of nature and faith, harnessing the transformative power of nature for mental, physical, and spiritual well-



Amira wanted to create a group for Muslim women to host retreats, expeditions and adventures during lockdown she came back to this idea that she had and had the courage to launch The Wanderlust Women.  She put her vision to reality. She wanted to see more Muslim women in the mountains, and now we are here with hundreds of women who are adventuring and exploring. Now, Amira empowers Muslim women on their personal journeys. Having conquered mountains global and helped thousands of women. 


You'll either find her up a mountain or traveling the world somewhere. She's the definition of wanderlust.
