A full day visiting Jordan’s wetland and wildlife reserves while passing by a UNESCO world heritage historical site.

Starting early from Amman heading east passing the most famous castles in the east of Jordan which one of them is an exceptionally well-preserved desert bathhouse from the early 8th century AD.

Reaching a unique wetland, a migratory stopover for birds from three continents where you can enjoy an easy walking trail while observing local, migratory, and occasional rare birds close at hand.
There is a family-run restaurant on the premises where you can enjoy a nice authentic meal.
Afterward, a short drive to a wildlife reserve for a 1-hour tour in a converted Land Cruiser safari tour bringing you close to one of the region’s most magnificent (and endangered) wild animals: the Arabian Oryx.
It is a great way to learn about the unusual desert habitats and conservation history.
Return to Amman by sunset time.

Day 1

8:00 am

Pick up from your Hotel in Amman

Pick up from your Hotel in Amman or from Queen Alia airport.

9:00 am

Visit Qasr Al-Kharanah

Qasr Kharana is one of the best-known of the desert castles located in present-day eastern Jordan, about 60 kilometres (37 mi) east of Amman and relatively close to the border with Saudi Arabia. It is one of the earliest examples of Islamic architecture in the region.

Its purpose remains unclear today. “Castle” is a misnomer as the building’s internal arrangement does not suggest a military use, and slits in its wall could not have been designed for arrowslits. It could have been a caravanserai, or resting place for traders, but lacks the water source such buildings usually had close by and is not on any major trade routes.

9:30 am

Visit Quseir 'Amra

A UNESCO World Heritage

Built in the early 8th century, this exceptionally well-preserved desert castle was both a fortress with a garrison and a residence of the Umayyad caliphs. The most outstanding features of this small pleasure palace are the reception hall and the hammam, both richly decorated with figurative murals that reflect the secular art of the time.

10:00 am

Visit to Al-Azraq Wetland Reserve

The Azraq Wetland Reserve is a nature reserve located near the town of Azraq in the eastern desert of Jordan. An oasis for migratory birds, Azraq was established in 1978 and covers 12 square kilometres (4.6 sq mi).

You will enjoy walking the marsh trail which will give you an excellent introduction to the Reserve.


2:00 am

Visit Al-Shaumari Wildlife Reserve

Initially a breeding center for endangered or locally extinct wildlife. Today, following breeding programs with some of the world’s leading wildlife parks and zoos, this small, 22-square-kilometre reserve is a thriving protected environment for some of the most rare species of animals in the Middle East. Oryx, ostriches, Onagers (an Asian wild ass) and gazelles.

You will enjoy a Jeep Safari Tour for a close encounter with the wild life in the reserve.

5:00 pm

Head back to Amman
