1/2 Day Wadi Rum 'Sandstorm' Jeep Tour

Day One

Once you have arrived in Rum Village and we have organised bags etc, and I have introduced you to your guide.

When you are ready you will leave for my 1/2 Day Wadi Rum 'Sandstorm' Jeep tour which visits the best and most beautiful areas of Wadi Rum, at each stop you have the opportunity to hike, scramble, and explore in your own time:

  1. Lawrence Spring Walk up through rocks and boulders to find the water (and a lovely fig tree to rest under).  During spring time you are greeted by the heady smell of herbs.. The view across the Wadi from here is legendary! Optional one hour hike
  2. Khazali Canyon This canyon was once used by the local Bedouin to rest in the shade, in the hot summer.  You can easily imagine how it would have looked with Bedouin tents, family's resting, drinking tea, and children playing.  You can find on the canyon walls many ancient rock inscriptions (See if you can spot the inscriptions of feet, and the Orynx). 15 minute hike
  3. Red Sand Dunes This area is very beautiful with many differing colour's of rock and sand. You can climb up the sand dune for the wonderful view at the top.  Then we like to jump off it & run down it (some silly people also like to roll down it!). 10/15 minute hike
  4. Anfishieh Inscriptions Rock inscriptions on the Anfishieh Jebel from the Thamudic and Nabatean periods. Inscriptions
  5. House of Lawrence a Nabatean structure that Lawrence of Arabia according to hearsay he used during the Great Arab Revolution to store weapons.  But without lingering on the possible academia of this site there is a wonderful view from here.. Archaeological interest/ viewpoint
  6. Um Frouth Arch For some scrambling (or scrambling watching).  This is a natural rock bridge, created by many years of water and wind.  You can climb to the top… as long as you are not afraid of heights! 10 minute scramble
  7. Sunset: We stop to enjoy the sunset from a beautiful place in the Um Sabbatah Area. 
  8. To the Camp (OR to the VILLAGE if you are not staying the night)Enjoy a delicious Bedouin dinner, the stars and the night in the desert. In the camp we have Bedouin tents (private), with mattresses and blankets. We have toilets (two Western) and two showers (cold water/ sun warmed). We have a main tent with a fire for sitting and relaxing in. The camp is in the white desert in a unique and beautiful location, secluded and away from any other tourist camps
