You may explore the desert best by jeep, allowing you to see the most beautiful sites in a couple of hours. We usually start our jeep tours from our camp, and stop at all of the famous sites of Wadi Rum such as Lawrence’s House, the Red Sand Dune, the Mushroom Stone, Barrah Canyon and the Um Fruth Rock Bridge, a natural rock arch.
During the trip you will see 2000 years old ancient Nabatean inscriptions, and we stop wherever you like to take your pictures. There are no pre-set departure times, we adjust the trip to your schedule. We offer tailor-made, private jeep tours where you have the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking desert atmosphere at your own pace. However, if you are up to meeting interesting people, and you are not against saving some costs, you may share your jeep tour with other guests who happen to come on the same day. The price of a jeep tour is by car, and maximum number of people in one car is 6, so the price will be split proportionately. We cannot guarantee in advance this possibility, as there may always be cancellations, but we will always offer you the opportunity to share.
