Jerash & Amman
This morning you head 50km north to Jerash. With a history stretching back at least 2300 years, Jerash is one of the finest examples of a provincial Roman town anywhere in the world. Although it was inhabited in pre- Roman times, it was with the coming of Alexander the Great that things really took off! As one of the league of ten cities known as the Decapolis, Jerash (otherwise known as Gerasa) grew in importance until, in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD, it was home to more than 25,000 people. The extraordinarily complete remains, which include a forum, a nymphaeum, hippodrome, two theatres (complete with numbered seats!) and several temples, date mainly from this period. Along the famous Colonnaded Street, grooves in the paving stones show where chariot wheels once rolled - kids will love playing gladiators! Elsewhere, remnants of exquisite mosaics still cover some floors. You have ample time to wander the site and imagine life in ancient times, before returning to Amman. Back in Amman visit some of the city sights, including the Citadel, and see how the modern city has been developed out of its ancient roots.Overnight: Amman Liwan Hotel (BLD)
You travel south to Wadi Rum along the Desert Highway. Approximately 320kms, 4 hrs. today is our longest driving day. Wadi Rum offers some of the most extraordinary desert scenery. Here you camp close to the entrance of the wadi, and in true desert fashion you sleep in a traditional Bedouin tent or under the stars. Lawrence of Arabia is just as evident today. To the Howeitat Bedouin, who have taken it as their own, the area is known as the Valley of the Moon. These people are reputedly the remainder of Lawrence's Arab army who marched with him from Azraq in the north, then stayed behind once battle was done. The Milky Way, satellites and shooting stars can clearly be seen - a great way to learn a little about the solar system.Overnight: Captains Camp, Bedouin-style camp (communal sleeping arrangement) (BLD)aptains
Wadi Rum, Aqaba
Explore the Wadi by 4WD perfect for examining the desert environment and how it is shaped by natural forces. You then follow the Kings highway onto the port town of Aqaba on the Red Sea, a short journey of just over an hour, where there will be personal time for an optional boat trip. Students are to be accompanied at all times by a Tour School Leader during personal time. Life jackets are provided on the boat. Overnight: Aqaba Rae’d Hotel & Suites, (BLD)
Once again you travel on the King’s Highway, this time for around 2 hours to the well-concealed city of Petra where you will have a full day to explore. Petra's exact location was unknown in the West until 1812, when the Swiss explorer J.L. Burckhardt, a convert to Islam, made a short detour to sacrifice a goat at the nearby meli (tomb) of the prophet Harun. As he picked his way towards the foot of the mountain, he stumbled across the siq, the narrow defile that leads to Petra – and the rest is history. Since that day many others have made their way along the same path and, as Burckhardt must have done, gazed in awe at the splendid monuments that adorn this remote valley. This morning you'll make your way to the fabled site, following the same path as Burckhardt, which funnels you through the banded rock walls that tower above. At the end of the kilometre-long path, you are rewarded by a glimpse of the most beautiful building of all - the Khazneh or Treasury - so-called because the Bedouin believed that the urn crowning the edifice held a cache of gold and jewels. The first sight of this perfectly proportioned tomb, carved from the towering rock, is truly unforgettable, but there's much more to come! Some 2,400 years ago the Nabateans taxed the trade caravans that plied between Arabia and the eastern Mediterranean and, using the proceeds, built the first houses and temples here. Later these taxes proved even more rewarding, and today the Nabatean legacy includes houses, tombs, temples, a (Roman-built) amphitheatre and much more.It is well worth making the hour or so ascent up the rocky path, which leads to the Monastery, a vast structure rivalling even the Treasury. Time should also allow you to climb to one of the High Places, the mountain-top altars where ritual sacrifices were made; from here there are spectacular views of the mountains, valleys and canyons below. Overnight: Petra Edom Hotel (BLD)
Dana Nature Reserve & Crusader Castles
Heading north you have a busy and varied day today, visiting highlights along the King’s Highway. Start with a visit to the nature reserve around Dana village which aims to protect some of Jordan's endangered species, and has also managed to preserve the timeless traditions still practised in the village. You then travel onto Kerak where a formidable Crusader castle overlooks a long, winding road down to the Dead Sea. Finally you visit Madaba famous for its 6th century mosaics. Total distance from Petra to Madaba is 200kms. Madaba is 30 kms south of Amman. Overnight: Madaba Salome Hotel (BLD)
Dead Sea & Amman
You spend time in Madaba then head to the biblical site of Mt Nebo. The Bible tells us this is the final resting-place of Moses; from here he looked out onto the Promised Land. Continue to the Dead Sea, at 400 meters below sea level it's the lowest place on earth. There will be time to swim (or rather float!) before the short journey back to Amman. Overnight: Amman Liwan Hotel (BLD)
