You may have seen the beauty of Wadi Rum in various movies. However, the experience, when you find yourself bumping along the dunes and the hot air blowing to your face, is something that you can experience and not watch in movies. You will find yourself amidst red rock formations and the sand dunes. Is it that you like to have such an experience in the Martian desert of Wadi Rum? If you do, then, do book Wadi Rum jeep tour of reputed tour operators.
Let us see what you can experience during such a tour.
The vehicle to ride
Having a look at the name of the tour, you might expect a 4×4 jeep waiting to take you for the ride. However, you will find a truck waiting instead. The truck will have a seating arrangement at the back.
As you overcome your first astonishment, you will realize that the seating arrangements are comfortable. You will also realize that it is good to have such an empty space with the air gushing at your face rather than being confined to the interior of a 4×4 jeep. You will love the “frightening moments” when the truck rolls down a dune or skid on the sand.
It is not just jeep tours
It would be wrong to anticipate that jeeps tours are the main activity in the Wadi Rum desert. You will have the chance to be in close proximity with nature, have hiking trips, staying at Bedouin camps and watching the star-filled sky. You will also have exposure to the culture of the Bedouins. Staying at the camp you can enjoy Bedouin hospitality, eat local delicacies, and enjoy the dance and music of the Bedouins.
