Experience a desert getaway like no other

Travel to Southern Jordan and discover the unique desert phenomenon that is Wadi Rum. This is one of the most astounding natural environments in the entire Middle East, a rambling landscape of spectacular and bizarre rock formations and soft red dunes that exude a magic in the light of dawn and dusk. Join Peregrine and discover just why this far-flung part of the world is known as The Valley of The Moon.

Independent Experiences

Independent travel, without the stress. Peregrine’s Independent Experiences are a range of short ‘mini tours’ that you can add to other Experiences or as an extension to a longer tour, to craft your perfect holiday itinerary. Independent Experiences are for 1-3 travellers, come accompanied by a local Peregrine guide and depart daily.

Before booking on this trip we recommend that you read the ‘Safety’ section in the trip notes regarding special safety considerations for Egypt trips.

Why we love this trip

  • On a guided 4x4 adventure, experience the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum, a rugged moonscape of huge sandstone mountains

  • Discover remnants of ancient civilisations hidden in the depths of the desert

Is this trip right for you?

  • There is a significant amount of walking involved on this trip as you discover Wadi Rum. Please bring comfortable shoes and a hat to make the most of your time at the sites.

  • The weather can be quite cool in winter, so it’s important to bring clothing you can wear in layers.

  • Our Independent Experiences have been designed for just one to three people, departing every day of the week for most Experiences. You can mix and match to create your perfect trip combination, then we’ll arrange the transport between each experience for you. You will have local guides at most destinations and activities. It’s independent travel without the stress.

Itinerary

Welcome to Jordan. This Wadi Rum Independent Experience starts at 9 am. You will be picked up from the Grand Palace Hotel, or from your hotel of choice (if advised prior to departure) before departing for Wadi Rum.

Meals Included
  • Lunch
  • Dinner
Follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia with a journey to the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum, a rugged moonscape of huge sandstone mountains (approximately 5 hours). A four-hour jeep safari will take you through some of the most beautiful and sublime desert scenery on the planet. Wadi Rum is full of weird and beautiful lunar-like rock formations, and traces of ancient civilisations can be seen in the many carved inscriptions found throughout the area, from pictographs to Thamudic, Nabataean and Arabic texts. The most enduring monuments in Wadi Rum are those carved by nature – the natural rock bridges, towering rose-coloured sand dunes and scattered rocky peaks. When it's all over, return to the desert camp in the afternoon to relax and unwind before another delicious dinner cooked in an earthen oven by your Bedouin hosts.
