If your time to visit the Wadi Rum desert is limited to one day this jeep tour gives you the best introduction possible. During the day you visit all major sites within the protected area. At lunch time we serve you a Bedouin lunch. We end the tour program by watching the sun set over Wadi Rum desert. We stay overnight in a cave where you can enjoy a traditional Bedouin dinner.
More information on these sites can be found on the Wadi Rum desert sites page.
We meet each other next to the Rest House in Rum village between 9.30 and 10 AM. Here we enjoy a Bedouin tea. We take the time to relax and talk about what we have in mind for today. After finishing our tea we leave Rum village to go out into the desert.
A short ride brings us to the natural spring called Lawrence spring. You scramble the spring to enjoy the spectacular views across Wadi Rum desert. We continue our drive and head to Khazali canyon. Here you see ancient inscriptions and a water hole. Our next stop is at a red sand dune. You can climb the dune and enjoy running down. A short drive brings us to the big rock wall called Anfishiyyeh. This rock wall is famous for its ancient inscriptions. The last site we visit in the morning is the Lawrence house.
We drive to a nice, quiet and shady place where we take a few hours break. We prepare a Bedouin lunch for you. After we finish our lunch there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.
We start the afternoon with a beautiful drive to the Mushroom rock. We make a short stop before continuing to Um Fruth rock bridge.

We wait for you on the other side. Before we go to Um Sabatah to watch the sunset we visit the natural rock bridge of Burdah.
