Your real life desert adventure begins as you drive four hours south of Amman to visit Wadi Rum, where the famous movie Lawrence of Arabia was filmed.
A vast, silent place, timeless and starkly beautiful, this Wadi (Arabic word meaning valley) lies beneath uniquely shaped mountains, towering out of the rose-red desert. Wadi Rum is a protected environment.

Rare species of animals, small plants and herbs can be found by the inquisitive traveler. Also found in the mountainous regions are herbal medicinal cures, used for centuries by the Bedouins. See the Ibex mountain goat along with many birds including vultures, buzzards and eagles.

Amongst this emptiness and silence you can camp and explore the desert in 4x4 Jeeps (2 hour tour - included), visiting the holographic pictures carved before Christ.

Later you can enjoy the Bedouin life under a blanket of stars at night after watching an incredible sunset between the Desert Mountains.

Day 1: Amman - Wadi Rum (D)
Your driver will pick you up at approximately 8am from your hotel in Amman. You'll arrive at Wadi Rum at around midday and have the rest of the day to explore independently. If you'd like a guided tour of Wadi Rum, please ask your driver for assistance in hiring a local guide (own expense) on arrival.

Overnight Accommodation: Bedouin Camp

Day 2: Wadi Rum - Amman (B)

Upgrade your experience to include a hot-air balloon ride over Wadi Rum. Wake up early to absorb the peaceful and serene surroundings, spot the camels roaming and the Bedouins starting their working day in the desert. After your hot-air balloon ride, head back to the camp where you can explore further on foot before your driver comes to collect you to return to Amman.
