After breakfast at the lodge, you will make the downhill walk to the Wadi Feynan Eco lodge situated at the Wadi Araba end of the Dana nature reserve. The predominantly flat / gently downhill route passes through sandstone gorges and valleys. Owned by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature it was designed and constructed in 2005 by renowned architect Ammar Khammash at the western edge of the Dana Biosphere Reserve. Before the lodge was built, the land was utilized as a campsite by archaeologists conducting studies and digs in the area. The RSCN developed the campsite into an eco –lodge to provide economic opportunities for local communities and generate revenue for the conservation of Jordan’s wild places. In September 2009, Eco Hotels took over the management and operation of the lodge, offering travelers an unparalleled opportunity to experience Jordan wilderness, meet its native people and explore its ancient history, with minimal impact on the environment. Lit entirely by candles and run on solar power the Eco – lodge is a fantastic experience set in the rugged Araba Valley that was once home to the early Christian as they were forced to work in the local copper mines.

Randy O., United States

I spent 3 weeks in the Middle East and Zaman Tours coordinated my itinerary in Jordan portion of the trip, specifically in Amman and Petra. These folks built a schedule specifically for me where I experienced the local scene in addition to all the major tourist attractions like Petra, Jaresh, the Citadel, Wadi Mujib and more. The guides and drivers were thoroughly knowledgeable, friendly and went out of their way to make this a memorable trip. I had a little trouble crossing the border from Israel to Jordan, but Zaman was there giving me the assistance I needed. Throughout my stay I was well taken care of and completely safe. After this experience, I feel I have new friends in Jordan. Read more
