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.

Discover Egypt & Jordan is a wonderful trip. You should do both countries if you can even though it is comprised of two separate Intrepid trips with two separate guides. Visiting Egypt is surreal with all its rich history, it is chaotic, busy, yet welcoming. There are limited covered meals and one can eat cheaply. Don't pass on Abu Simbal. I Ubered everywhere prior to the trip. Jordan is civilized and more expensive. Yet one can eat for $10-15/meal. Glamping in Wadi Rum, and exploring Petra were both memorable. There is lots of walking in both countries. Be mindful of the weather, and the difficulty rating when booking. So you can keep up with the rest of the group. Just bring a carry on, you can have your clothes washed . I love traveling with Intrepid.

Jordan should be on everyone’s list! Awe inspiring desert sunsets, amazing history, good food, and the people are very welcoming. I never felt unsafe, even when exploring on my own in my free time. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
