Day 1

The Bedouin Footprint tour is a walking expedition through the following sites in the Wadi Rum desert:

  • Lawrence’s Spring, named after T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) who spoke so invitingly of it during the Arab Revolt. You can also climb the rock formation, where the spring emerges from the mountain, taking in one of the best views of the vast desert landscape.
  • Trek to the red sand dunes and take a quick rest before ascending the slopes.
  • Jabel Khazali Canyon, once inhabited by Bedouin families, tents used to occupy the area being a perfect shady respite from the desert sun. On the walls you'll find ancient rock inscriptions and paintings by the Nabateans and Thamud people.
  • Followed by the Um Fruth Bridge (approximately 20m high), a crowd favorite allowing for a very enjoyable, satisfying climb and another excellent photo opportunity.
  • Then onward through Wadi Kashkasheh Canyon to view the most famous mountain in Wadi Rum.
  • Head back to the campsite to enjoy a delicious traditional Bedouin meal along with some more sweet Bedouin tea around the campfire before retiring to your cozy tent cabins.

Day 2

Enjoy a delicious and hearty breakfast buffet enjoying the sunrise!  At 8:00 – 8:30am, we will drive you back to either the meeting point at the entrance to the Wadi Rum Village or the Visitor’s Centre. We strive to be flexible where we can, and the transportation schedule can be adjusted to suit your needs. Please discuss with your tour guide.
