You will meet our driver at the hotel lobby between 7 a.m–8 a.m (your exact timing will be provided by
the support team, one day before the tour) after the entail greetings, you start your journey toward
Wadi Rum about 2:00hrs drive.
Your excursion will take you into the majestic Wadi Rum. From Petra, it is around a 2hrs drive to Wadi Rum along the desert highway.
Once we reach Wadi Rum, our Bedouin friend Abu-Yosef will greet us at his home with traditional
Bedouin tea (tea made with fresh sage and sugar). After your short rest, you will be set to explore the immense area of Wadi Rum while in the back of an old 4×4 truck. To discover a landscape that was once described by the British officer T. E. Lawrence as, ‘vast, echoing and Godlike.’ This description
wonderfully summarizes the Wadi Rum experience.
You will notice how the mountains of rock just seem to melt under the sun’s energy, and the tracks of camels, foxes, and wild dogs sprinkled on the
wind-swept sand. The incredible silence will engulf you, making you feel like part of the landscape around you.
Later, you will be taken to one of the highest points in all of Wadi Rum to witness a spectacular sunset.
Abu-Yosef will prepare us some more Bedouin tea, right in the desert sand, and leave us to watch the
descending sun. As we welcome the moon, a whole new view of the landscape around you emerges and as the darkness creeps in, the sky lights up with millions of stars to cast a silvery light upon the entire world.
After a day exploring Wadi Rum, time to return back to Petra, the drive once again will be around 2:00hrs.
