Additional Information

 Spectacular desert landscapes dotted with caravans of camels, ancient rose-colored cities rising out of the ground and nights under the stars in Bedouin camps, this is Jordan at its best. This is a special departure accompanied by honorary RCGS Vice President, writer, photographer, filmmaker, and world-renowned explorer, Wade Davis. With degrees in anthropology and biology, a Ph.D. in ethnobotany and travels everywhere from East Africa, Borneo and Polynesia to Tibet, New Guinea and Vanuatu, Wade is the ultimate travel companion and will be on hand to share insights, stories, and photographic tips and tricks throughout. As seen on documentaries and television across the world, Wade will be on hand as you get to know Jordan and truly appreciate what this time locked land has to offer on this in-depth journey. Take in world-famous monuments such as Petra and Jerash and then spend time exploring the less well-known historic and archaeological treasures. Watch centuries of history come to life in the Desert Loop, home to palaces and forts dating back to 661 AD. Visit the biblical Mount Nebo where Moses was shown The Promised Land before his death. Take in the impossibly vast landscapes of Wadi Rum and spend a night in a Bedouin Camp. Relax with a float in the Dead Sea, and snorkel alongside a myriad of colorful fish in the Red Sea. From start to finish you’ll be treated to a perfect mix of history, adventure, and relaxation.
