Responsible tourism: Jordan hiking holiday, Petra to Wadi Rum

Environment

You will be hiking in the protected area of Wadi Rum during this tour. A perfect place to experience the beauty and silence of the desert. One of the reasons why the protected area is created is to conserve this desert and its beauty within. In Wadi Rum, one can find a lot of wildlife. There are birds, insects, reptiles but also larger species such as the Arabian Oryx. However, the Arabian Oryx and other species, are reduced to very low numbers. By visiting this breathtaking desert you might spot an Arabian Oryx but you also help to protect it. Conservation fees are included in your entry ticket. Which means the more visitors, the more fees will be available to conserve this stunning desert and its creatures.

During your stay in Wadi Rum you will also be camping outdoors. Tents will be provided and after each night we make sure to clean up the campsites so that no waste is left behind.

Community

For your desert experience we only use local people. Most of the people who live in and around Wadi Rum are of Bedouin origin and used to led nomadic lives relying on their goat herds. And there are some people who still do that. We work with the people who live in Rum Village, the only village located inside the protected area. The services they organised (such as jeep, camel tours, horse ride, mountain climbing and hiking), are organised through the Rum Tourism Cooperative. Rum Tourism Cooperative is a locally run society that shares the tourism between the villagers. So everyone benefits in an equal way which stimulates and encourages the interaction with tourists. And it also prevents jealousy and other possible negative problems. So by visiting Wadi Rum you will not only help with conserving the protected area, you will also help the people living in and around Wadi Rum.
