Meet Bedouin locals, learn about their ways, and sleep under the stars in a desert camp in the far-out destination of Wadi Rum
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.

Travel to Jordan is a magical experience, the local people we met are very gentle and loving. The tour leader is a wealth of knowledge, very enthusiastic about his country, its customs; he was genuinely very caring for the travelers enjoyment. The wadi ram experience is a must I would repeat my stay there is a very peaceful and calm place.

I absolutely love travelling with Intrepid, just completed trip number 6 and loved every minute as I have with all my previous trips. The guides are exceptional! I have been to places I never dreamed of, met and dined with the local people, made great friends, love the "RT" responsible travel focus. I have become a true "Traveladdict" Thanks Intrepid for making it possible and feeding my habit.
