Some things to note

Some things to note icon
  • In recent years, authorities have enforced restrictions on visitors taking surveillance equipment into Jordan, specifically binoculars. For security reasons, binoculars will be subject to inspection by Jordan Border Protection and may be confiscated by officials if deemed to be particularly high powered.
  • In Wadi Rum you’ll spend the night in a basic Bedouin desert. You will need to pack an overnight bag as your luggage will be stored in your vehicle. We recommend packing a torch, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, strong and comfortable walking shoes and ensure you have ample drinking water. During the winter months (September - March) it does get very cold at night in the desert so you might want to bring your thermals.
  • Ramadan is observed from 22 March to 21 April 2023.
  • Prices are per person based on twin share. Single supplement on request. Seasonal surcharges apply. Hotel upgrades are available. Please contact our office for details.

We have a duty of care to all tour participants and the tour guides, so we do impose a firm policy on the level of fitness required by all our clients to attempt to ensure your safety and the safety of other travellers on our tours.

At Bunnik Tours our goal is for all our travellers to enjoy their tour, not struggle through it! Which is why we want to work with you to ensure you are on the best possible trip for your fitness level.

We reserve the right to cancel your booking if any changed or non-disclosed medical conditions mean that you will require special assistance from our personnel which we cannot reasonably provide. We strongly suggest that your travel insurance policy includes comprehensive cancellation coverage.
