Responsible tourism: Jordan highlights & camel safari, tailor made

Environment

During your camel safari you will enjoy camping in the great outdoors in Wadi Rum protected area. Of course tents will be provided. Every morning before you hop back on your camel, you will clean the campsite together with your local Bedouin guide and chef. It is really important that there is no waste left behind.

Wadi Rum protected area cover 720km of desert in the South of Jordan. There is a lot of small wildlife in Wadi Rum such as birds, insects and reptiles. Larger species such as the Arabian Oryx can be found as well. Only their numbers are small. It is for that reason that the protected area exists now. In your entry ticket conservation fees are included. So we recommend you to visit this stunning desert so more money will be available. A big conservation program is on the way but in order to succeed more visitors are needed.

Our local Bedouin guide will ask you to follow the rules and regulations at all times. So more people can enjoy its beauty and help conserve the famous desert called Wadi Rum.

Community

During your holiday you will be accompanied by the local people of Jordan. While touring the country your local English speaking driver will make sure all goes well.

And during your camel safari you will be guided by local English speaking Bedouins. Another local Bedouin will come along who will take care of your luggage and he will be preparing all your meals fresh.

We work with the people who live in Rum Village, the only village located inside the protected area of Wadi Rum. You will be meeting some real local Bedouins on your desert experience. The desert is their home, they surely are the best guides you can have.

All these local people who help your holiday dreams come true, will be given fair wages for their hard work.

We recommend our guests to eat at locally owned restaurants and buy souvenirs from local artists to further support the local communities in Jordan. In Petra you will find a souvenir shop called "Handmade in Jordan". They ensure that all souvenirs they sell are created by local artists and that they are all compensated fairly for their hard work.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


This is such a difficult question to answer. The whole holiday from beginning to the end was fantastic. Jordan is so safe: the people are so friendly and welcoming. We visited Petra and Petra by night, Jerash, Karak, the Jordan River, Bethany beyond the Jordan, Dana, the Dead Sea, Amman and we also spent 3 days on a camel safari in the desert, living as Bedouins. It was a holiday with a difference and one we will not forget.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


I can only speak from our experience and I would say that our tour operator made this a holiday of a lifetime. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We travelled extensively and their support was with us every step of the way. Don't be deterred from going to Jordan, because you don't think its safe - Jordan IS safe. It's welcoming, friendly and the people are lovely. I cannot praise our tour operator enough, they absolutely made this holiday for us. Thank you.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes we did feel that we were giving something back to the local people. They were such friendly, helpful people and genuinely pleased to see you and to welcome you to their country. It was good to be able to give a little back to them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


This was one of the best holidays we have ever had and we have traveled to many different parts of the world. The holiday was good, but the staff made it great and it was a holiday we will always remember. We are very grateful to them all.
