There is quite a bit of walking involved in visiting Jordan's historic sites, especially in Petra and Wadi Rum, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Most of the time there is no shade so remember to bring a hat, sun protection, and sturdy, comfortable walking shoes.
Winters can get quite cool, so if you're visiting at this time, don't forget to pack some warmer layers too.
The desert camp in Wadi Rum is basic but incredibly memorable. There are tents and shared western bathroom facilities. Please be aware that while the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cool at night and warm clothes and a sleeping bag is highly recommended when travelling outside of the summer months.

If you are thinking about travelling to the Middle East please travel to Jordan. You will discover a culture steeped in biblical and ancient history, friendly and respectful people (esp. the men), great food, good clean well equipped hotels. All you'll need is a good pair of walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, and a hungry mind. Your eyes will see sights and loved and restored artifacts dating back 9,000 years. You never imagined such beauty and glorious 1st and 2nd Century AD treasures were so cared for. We are much deprived of this history in the West. A marvellous and wondrous trip. Take it. And pray Usama Awad is your guide - a total legend.
