Time for some exciting 4x4 action! Upon arrival at Wadi Rum, you’ll transfer to a jeep for a 4x4 safari across the stunning desertscape. The region is home to the semi - nomadic Bedouin, living in goat’s hair tents, tending their herds of sheep and goat and preserving an ancient lifestyle that has been practiced in the Arabian Desert for thousands of years. Spend the evening at a Bedouin camp, enjoy a traditional meal and sleep either in a tent or under a galaxy of stars! It’s a truly unforgettable experience

Drive to the ancient Rose City of Petra. You can stop en route to visit the impressive crusader castle of Karak.

The entrance to the city is through a narrow and deep winding trail-like fissure in the rocks known as the Siq. The rocks give way to reveal the most awesome sight, that of the famous facade of the Kazneh - the Treasury of Petra . Explore the ancient Nabatean tombs and the Roman rockcarved streets lined with temples, royal tombs, staircases, arched gates, and public buildings.(Guided sightseeing is highly recommended and can be arranged upon request).This evening enjoy Petra by night experience (included in the price)
