    Taxi fares to and from Wadi Rum

    by TheWanderingCamel Written Mar 25, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is how to get around inside Wadi Rum!

    Wadi Rum to Petra = 25JD
    Wadi Rum to central Aqaba = 15JD
    Wadi Rum to Aqaba port, Aqaba airport or the Saudi or Israeli borders = 20JD
    Amman airport to Wadi Rum = 60JD
    Wadi Rum to the Desert Highway = 5JD

    The fares in the other direction should be the same.

    the Jeep tour

    by Djinn76 Updated Jan 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shiny white vehicule was not ours!

    There are several ways to discover the desert: Jeep, pick-up or even camel.
    We have to decide at the entrance of the site, in the visitors' center (a nice tourist trap as well, see the related tip).
    We chosed the 4h tour with a Jeep, indeed some kind of vehicle that could have done the war!
    This is pretty convenient to have a good feeling of the desert in quite a short amount of time...
    The price is fixed and for this tour, it was 32JD per vehicle.
    My different must-see tips are describing the tour and the different halts in a chronological order.

    Minibus to Aqaba

    by Sambawalk Written Dec 10, 2004

    You can either take the minibus from Wadi Rum to Petra ot to Aqaba. Alternatively, you need to travel around 10 km from the visitors centre to the main highway where you can catch any minibus to the north or to Aqaba. From here to Aqaba, it costs JD1. From Petra to Wadi Rum, it costs JD2.

    Camel

    by morgr Written Nov 15, 2004
    My punk rock camel with a nose ring.

    As terribly uncomfortable as it is, riding a camel is really quite an experience. We chose to go with the camel option for our venture out into the desert for just that reason, plus it was cheaper than a jeep.

    Bring lots of water and wear a hat, and if you're a smoker, just for fun buy a pack of camels and smoke a camel on a camel. Just don't chuck your butts in the desert please.

    Tip: To lessen the pain you'll no doubt be feeling in your posterior after about an hour or two, wrap your leg around the camels neck and tilt yourself at about a 45 degree angle. That is, if the camel is facing strait, you are facing 45 degrees to the left or right.

    Feet, Hoofs & Wheels

    Wadi Rum

    Apart from when we were taken by truck to the Bedouin tent in the night (read my Rum Intro Page!) We walked everywhere we went during our 2 days in Wadi Rum.
    A book by Tony Howard called "Treks & Climbs in the Mountains of Wadi Rum & Petra" is recommended if you want to do some serious walking & climbing.

    You are able to organise Jeep trips and also Camel Tours through the Desert for a few day all the way down to Aqaba, I think it takes 3 days by Camal.

    Actually I think camels probably have feet too, Do they? (~_~)

    Camels

    One of the most exciting way to explore Wadi Rum is by camel. It's a great experience and in this way is possible to live this fantastic place in a different way.
