Jordan has many hidden secrets behind its Ancient past, one is the rich culture and what better way to immerse you in another culture than to taste it? The undulating sand dunes and deserts of Wadi Rum hide Bedouin feasts underground, the salty Dead Sea offers a world-class garnish and the hot climate is perfect to grow olives.
Eat breakfast with a Jordanian shepherd. Drink fire-warmed sheep’s milk, then scoop bread into a pot of rich Galayah Bandoora.

Bedouin zarb – slow roasted vegetables and juicy spiced meats cooked to perfection in an underground barbecue.
Meet Bedouin locals and sleep under the stars in a Bedouin camp.
Day 1: Amman
Welcome to Amman, capital of Jordan. Amman is known for sharing a mix of both young and old culture. The western side of the city is home to cafes, bars, malls and art galleries while the eastern side is generally less about affluence and more about tradition.
Day 2: Madaba - Petra
First stop, Salaheddin bakery, today’s breakfast joint and a favourite among locals. Walk in, choose a hot, fresh loaf and fill it with baked eggs, cheese, spices or anything else you want from the counter. After filling up on arguably the best bread in town, board a bus and head through Madaba before reaching the Dead Sea (approximately 45 minutes drive).
Day 3: Petra
Today we explore ancient Petra, known as one of the new ‘seven wonders of the world’. This archaeological city sits within 80 m high cliff walls – the iconic treasury, carved into the face of one of these cliffs is definitely the highlight of this visit.
Day 4: Wadi Rum
We rise early as today’s breakfast will be shared with a local shepherd as you bask in awe of the beautiful dry countryside. Then head on to Wadi Rum (approximately 3 hours drive), a place often referred to as ‘The Valley of the Moon’. Enjoy a true ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ moment while exploring the sparse red sand dunes, steep craggy mountains and the legendary ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’ rock formation on a four hour jeep ride through the region.
Day 5: Amman
Following breakfast, take a walking tour through the desert surrounding Wadi Rum. Pictures don’t do this place justice. The sand dunes shift in colour as the day passes by and the colossal mountains sit steep and sharp, adding to a sense that these ancient lands were forgotten by time long ago.
Day 6: Amman
