Unlike its barren neighbors to the north, south, and east, Feralas is a jungle. Both the Horde and Alliance lay claim to the area and both have to contend with local forces, which include the Gordunni ogres which populate the region and control a number of ancient elven ruins scattered in the area, including the vast dungeon of Dire Maul. Gordunni ogres have desecrated and defiled much of Feralas and have damaged the land with their taint. The Horde in particular is concerned with the unchecked expansion of the Gordunni clan and has put out a call for adventurers to aid the war effort against the ogres.
Feralas is also home to a number of scattered Grimtotem Tauren tribes, members of which are hunted by Horde agents on the orders from Belgrom Rockmaul in Orgrimmar. In addition, the far western islands are crawling with naga and recently several silithid hives have been spotted in the region.
Alliance may find some trouble getting into the zone. Adventurers can travel south from Nijel's Point in Desolace, but then you will have to pass between the Twin Colossals which is full of beasts 47-50, and head directly to Feathermoon Stronghold. Alternatively, they can travel west from Thalanaar, but will encounter the Horde town Camp Mojache, which can also be tough to pass. The easiest way for Alliance adventurers is the water route. From Nijel's Point they can go west, and after passing by Thunder Axe Fortress and Ethel Rethor jump to water in Sar'theris Strand. Swimming on that route they should avoid Shadowprey Village. After passing it, there is mobless water to Feathermoon Stronghold.
From Freewind Post travel north west along the main road until you enter Feralas. You will pass by the Alliance outpost of Thalanaar that you must avoid. Shortly into the jungle is the town of Camp Mojache. There is a flight path there.
