The Jeep Tour and Camel Trek Combo itinerary is as follows:

Day 1

You will be introduced to your tour guide and your camel, and your guide will show you how to mount your camel and comfortably ride it through the desert, to the following sites:

  • 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 great sand dunes of Wadi Um Ishrin where you can climb to the top for incredible panoramic views. Sliding/running down the dunes afterwards is also great fun.
  • Enjoy lunch in and relax in the shade with some traditional Bedouin tea. Afterwards can independently explore the area at your own leisure whilst your lunch goes down.
  • Visit the ancient Anfashiyeh Inscriptions.
  • Journey through the Um Rashid Canyon.
  • Lawrence's House, where legend claims that he stayed in during the revolt.
  • Journey 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.

The camel trekking journey is approximately 5 hours.

Go stargazing after dinner! Let the clear night sky mesmerize you with millions of twinkling stars including, of course, the Milky Way Galaxy itself. You may even be lucky enough to catch a shooting star and make a wish. The campsite is safe to walk around and wander about freely, though it is easy get lost in the dark so stay close.

Day 2

After a hearty breakfast buffet, your day will commence with a Jeep tour and short canyon hike, visiting the following highlights:

  • Ancient ruins of a Nabatean Temple.
  • Qater Spring a wonderful and well known natural spring within the Wadi.
  • Cow Rock, a rock shaped by the wonder of nature into its given name.
  • Enjoy lunch in cliff-side shade in Barrauh Canyon.
  • After lunch you can embark on a 1-2 km hike through the canyon itself, if you wish.
  • Onward to the Jebel Burdah rock bridge, the highest natural bridge in the Wadi Rum and a wonderful photo opportunity!
  • Followed by the Um Fruth Bridge (approximately 20m high), a crowd favorite allowing for a very enjoyable, satisfying climb and another excellent photo opportunity.
  • The Jabel Khazali Canyon, a 15-minute tour of canyon walls adorned with ancient rock inscriptions and paintings by the Nabateans and Thamud people.
  • Relax atop a giant red sand dune and enjoy the legendary Wadi Rum sunset with some Bedouin tea.
  • After sunset, 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.
