Day 1 – September 15th – Wadi Rum
We have breakfast and check out from our hotel in Petra and drive to the magnificent and vast Wadi Rum desert.  It was here the British Army officer T.E. Lawrence gathered the Arab tribes to revolt against the Ottoman Turkish rule during World War I, a story that reached world fame in the movie “Lawrence of Arabia.”

 

 

From the Wadi Rum Visitor’s Center we change from bus to jeeps and go on a tour in the desert past sand dunes and incredible rock formation. The tour ends in the middle of the desert where we set up our tented camp for the night. Like real Bedouins we will cook dinner over an oen fire with the gazing stars and Moon illuminating our outdoor hotel.

NB: Before booking this adventure kindly be aware of the fact that toilets and running water will not be available at the camp! All meals included this day.
