The Red Desert of Jordan

Meet the red desert and experience the vast immensity and tranquillity of the boundless empty spaces.

Araba border – Wadi Rum half

Our representative will be there to welcome you as you arrive at Wadi Araba Border. Proceed to the desert of Wadi Rum, a stupendous, timeless place, virtually untouched by humanity and its destructive forces. Here, it is the weather and winds that have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers, so elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence as “vast, echoing and God-like…” A 4-hour Jeep ride will take you deep into the Jordanian Desert where you will discover many scriptures and drawings of past civilizations carved into the stone 4000 years ago. You can take a hike in Wadi Rum to explore the many narrow canyons and water holes and experience the vast immensity and tranquillity of the boundless empty spaces. Then we will take you to an area of pale honey colored rock – Al Beidha in Arabic, ‘the white one’. Here in the 1st century AD the Nabataeans established a commercial suburb, a place for trading caravans to stop en route between south Arabia and the Mediterranean.At the end of the visit, your vehicle will drive you to your hotel in Petra.

The site is massive, and contains hundreds of elaborated rock-cut tombs, a treasury, Roman-style theatres, temples, sacrificial altars and colonnaded streets. Return to Wadi Araba at whatever time suits your plans. Read more

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
