The detailed Wadi Rum jeep tour itinerary​

Meeting point and start time

We will meet up at our office in Rum village for the check-in at 9.30 AM. We will have some delicious Bedouin tea and chat about our plans for the day. Once we finish the check-in, you will have a little bit of time for any final preparations. At 10 AM, we will set out into the stunning desert landscape for a day full of adventures.

In the morning

We begin our journey with a visit to Lawrence spring, a natural spring located halfway up a mountain. From this vantage point, you will be able to take in the awe-inspiring views of Wadi Rum. Next, we will venture to the nearby red dune, where you can climb to new heights and soak in even more stunning scenery. You might even feel the rush of excitement as you run down this magnificent sand formation. Our next stop is the renowned Khazali canyon, home to a unique collection of ancient inscriptions and refreshing waterholes. After a short drive, we will arrive at Little bridge, the first of three splendid rock bridges we will visit throughout the day. We will climb the bridge and marvel at the breathtaking views of the surrounding valley before continuing to our final morning destination, the legendary Lawrence House.

Lunchtime

We venture further into the desert until we reach a tranquil and picturesque spot where we pause for a lunch break. Your guide prepares a freshly made Bedouin lunch right before our eyes. After the meal, you can rest or stroll to explore the surroundings at your own pace.

During the winter season, our daylight hours are limited, which means we will continue our journey right after lunch. Conversely, we have a prolonged break in the summer season to avoid the scorching midday heat.

In the afternoon

We will begin our afternoon with a scenic drive to Mushroom rock. After a short stop, we will continue our journey through the yellow desert until we reach the Burdah rock bridge viewpoint. We will take time to appreciate the magnificent rock bridge and surrounding desert landscape there. Afterward, we will make our way to the narrow and surprisingly green Abu Khashaba canyon. You will enjoy a delightful walk through the canyon, which typically takes about 30-45 minutes. As this is a walking-only canyon, your guide will drive around the mountain and meet you on the other side of the canyon. We will then make our way to the Um Fruth rock bridge, where you can challenge yourself with a short and exhilarating scramble to the top. As the sun begins to set, we will make our way to Um Sabbath to witness the breathtaking sunset.

Departure

Once we have enjoyed the sunset, we make our way back to our office in Rum village. It usually takes us 45 minutes to an hour to get there. If you are curious about the exact time of sunset on your chosen tour date, you can easily find that information on the website timeanddate.com. After checking out, we bid you farewell and wish you a safe journey ahead.

What our guests say about the Wadi Rum jeep tour

We booked the full-day jeep tour and a 1-hour camel ride. We had an amazing day with our guide, a young local guy who knew a lot about the different highlights we visited. His English was perfect, and he provided us with enough water during the day and an amazing meal for lunch. If you want to book a tour to explore Wadi Rum, this is the place to be—a very well-planned tour for a very reasonable price, in my opinion.

I picked Wadi Rum Nomads from the very high TA reviews and was so glad. I had booked another nonrefundable luxury campsite based on many positive reviews but found out afterward that they do not make trips and were not even inside the park. As a solo traveler, I didn't want to do my own tour and Wadi Rum Nomads was so kind to fit me in with one of her other trips. I did the day tour, and it was spectacular- from the scenery, the wildness of the desert, the friendly, trustworthy people, and their assistance driving me back to my other hotel for the night. I caught a glimpse of their desert camp, and it looked so magical and peaceful. I really wished I had not booked the other place and stayed with Wadi Rum Nomads in their desert camp, even if it was more rustic accommodations. Next time, I will stay there. No need to look anywhere else. This is the place to go. They also helped with with taxi hires from Petra to Wadi Rum and back to Amman and the drivers were friendly and safe.
