"Vast, echoing and god-like" was how T.E. Lawrence described Wadi Rum. Here, it is the weather and winds that have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers, so elegantly described by Lawrence.Wadi Rum, like many of the geological and archaeological treasures in Jordan, should not be rushed. The slower the pace, the more the haunting beauty of the desert grows on you. You need time to take in the desert's infinitesimal variations of light and colour.
We have handpicked a choice of two camps for your stay in the desert.

Best time to be there
March to May and September to November are best times to be in the country, but Jordan's Mediterranean climate is pleasant all year round. Lightweight clothes are advised between May and September. Warmer clothes are necessary for winter and cool summer evenings. Rainwear is needed from November to April. It has been known to snow as far south as Petra.

Our recent awards
I am delighted with the enthusiasm, willingness and dynamism of the A&K team. Right from my first call I felt as if you were as excited about this trip as I was. I was booking this trip as a birthday gift for my husband, and it was a delight to hear such energy coming from your end throughout the booking process. You answered my questions, and made promises that you kept, all of which contributed greatly to a very positive experience. Thank you most sincerely. My consultant Rob was a joy to deal with.
