Amman - Wadi Rum
Welcome to Jordan. This Wadi Rum Independent Experience starts at 9 am. You will be picked up from the Grand Palace Hotel, or from your hotel of choice (if advised prior to departure) before departing for Wadi Rum. Once you arrive at the camp, enjoy lunch and a chance to relax before dinner under the stars.
Follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia with a journey to the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum, a rugged moonscape of huge sandstone mountains (approximately 5 hours). A four-hour jeep safari will take you through some of the most beautiful and sublime desert scenery on the planet. Wadi Rum is full of weird and beautiful lunar-like rock formations, and traces of ancient civilisations can be seen in the many carved inscriptions found throughout the area, from pictographs to Thamudic, Nabataean and Arabic texts. The most enduring monuments in Wadi Rum are those carved by nature – the natural rock bridges, towering rose-coloured sand dunes and scattered rocky peaks. When it's all over, return to the desert camp in the afternoon to relax and unwind before another delicious dinner cooked in an earthen oven by your Bedouin hosts.
Wadi Rum - Amman
After time spent in the incredible landscapes of Wadi Rum, return to the present with a transfer back to Amman. You arrive back at the Grand Palace Hotel in Amman at approximately 4 pm. In the evening, enjoy some free time exploring Amman as you please. Perhaps seek out a delicious ara’yes, a toastie filled with spicy mincemeat, and spend your final night at one of the many bars and restaurants in West Amman. Ask your leader about the traditional cafes dotted around the city where locals spend their evenings.
Your trip comes to an end today and you are free to depart at any time.
