you will find adventure Feel the romance of the Arabian desert in the spring time…or
at Wadi Rum in Jordan.
Let the fabled T.E. Lawrence come alive, whether through memories
stirred from the screen version or from the pages of history and the
actual exploits of the legendary British officer.
Wadi Rum is like a moon scape of ancient valleys and towering
weathered sandstone mountains rising out of the white and pink
colored sands. Much of David Lean’s ”Lawrence of Arabia”
filmed there and it
was also the location where T.E. Lawrence himself was based during the
desert police fort is located at the entrance to Wadi Rum, where the
police are not mounted on horse or jeep, but on camels-ships of the
desert. Today Wadi Rum challenges climbers to scale its sheer
granite and sandstone cliffs, to hike along mountain trails
and valleys, to trek deep into the enchanting landscape in
four-wheel-drive vehicles, or to join two or three day desert
safaris on camel-back or 4x4 vehicles. Stunning in its natural
beauty, Wadi Rum epitomizes the romance of the desert. Now the home
of several Bedouin tribes, Wadi Rum has been inhabited for
hospitable and friendly desert people are settled around the “Beau
Geste” Camel Corps Fort
in Wadi Rum, and in scattered nomadic camps throughout the area.
You may be invited to share mint tea or cardamom coffee in their
black tents, perhaps sitting by the fire under a starry desert
sky-it is an experience you will never forget.
