Wadi Araba Desert, Aqaba

4.7
#2 of 7 in Parks in Al Aqabah Governorate
The vast expanse of Wadi Araba Desert--a part of the Great Rift Valley that stretches from Aqaba to the Dead Sea--features a pristine semi-arid and sandy landscape. A number of tourist agencies in Aqaba offer tours of the desert, which you can brave on foot, in a jeep, or even on the back of a horse or camel. Enjoy the tranquility of the remote uninhabited desert while you roam among sand dunes and interesting rock formations. Most of the guided tours offer a chance to camp out in the desert overnight and visit a Bedouin camp.

  • Really enjoyed the tour! Impressions of the desert-with anything not comparable! Left very satisfied! Opinions were divided in our family ... husband enjoyed more desert and me Petra. Therefore it is worth to visit! Better Tours buy not the tour operator and agency, so cheaper! When you purchase a 3-x excursions make discounts and savings for two to $250 (Pegasus)

  • Excursion to the Wadi Rum very much! I wanted to be photographed constantly, because the kinds of desert infinitely beautiful and unrealistic.

  • The first time I visited the desert. With the sunset we were unlucky because there was a big clouds. In the desert is very beautiful, brick color sand, mountains, skinny camels))). Dinner with Bedouins in the Tabernacle.
