Why Visit Jordan
Jordan is intrinsically woven into biblical accounts throughout the Old Testament. Jordan has many biblical sites that associate with Moses, Joshua, Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist, and Jesus.
Wadi Rum is timeless. Also known as ‘The Valley of the Moon’, this majestic landscape is breath-taking and the perfect place to have the quintessential desert experience. Explore the unusual terrain and see the colours of the sand dunes as you drive around in a 4×4.
Jordan has history, including Petra. Once home to the ancient Nabatean people, also known as ‘Rose City’, this historical and archaeological site has been described by UNESCO as ‘one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage’.
Jordan is truly a hidden gem. It is rich in heritage, history and culture. Remnants of ancient civilizations of Ammon, Moab and Edom, and well-preserved religious sites remain accessible in the modern-day Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
