In order to tour the Wadi Rum, you must first go through the Visitor Centre, the gateway to the protected desert area. The Centre requires an admission fee (5 JD per person), but if you have a Jordan Pass admission is free. After the Visitor Centre, continue onward for about 6km to the Wadi Rum Village where I will greet you. From there, I will take you to the Wadi Rum Rest House for a cup of delicious Bedouin tea. We will chat with you about the day plans and outline them on a map. Once the tea is finished, we will set off into the desert.
Our first stop is Lawrence’s Spring, then Khazali canyon where you can see some Nabatean and Thamudic inscriptions. After this, the tour continues to the Red sand dunes, the Anfishiyyeh inscriptions, and Lawrence’s house which features some beautiful landscapes and mushroom rocks.
After a traditional Bedouin lunch in the desert, the tour will proceed to an amazing sand stone arch known as Burdah rock bridge. Following a trip to the Abu Khashaba canyon and then the Um Fruth rock bridge, we will watch the unmatched Wadi Rum Sunset, then return to our Bedouin camp in the middle of the desert for a feast of ‘Zerb’ – a traditional Bedouin dish of meat and vegetables cooked underneath the desert’s sand —and a night in Wadi Rum, under the bright desert stars. Please note: if you are vegetarian, vegan or have any other dietary requirements, we can still provide you with a delicious meal.
Following dinner, we will sit around a bonfire, converse and drink tea. Our guides may perform music for you with traditional Bedouin string instruments, the ‘ooud’ and ‘rababa.’ For your accommodations you’ll be given a private and spacious Bedouin tent woven with black sheep hair with all the necessary furnishings for a comfortable stay. All camps are equipped with clean bathrooms and kitchens where we prepare your meals.
The day starts with a half-hour transfer to The Burdah Rock Bridge. Here, A guide will lead you to the top of the arch, commanding amazing views of the desert landscape. After descending the rock bridge, your guide will prepare you lunch. Later, you continue to the Abu Khashaba canyon, the walk back to the Wadi Rum village arriving in the late afternoon. We can arrange transport to your next destination if required.
Also note that if you would like to add or change anything in regard to the tour this can be easily arranged.
