Travel aboard a comfortable motor coach from Aqaba to the interior desert of Wadi Rum, for about an hour’s drive. The enchanting, open space of Wadi Rum resembles the surface of the moon, including the enigmatic lure.

You will board your sturdy 4x4 Jeep and embark on your safari under the steady guidance of the native Bedouin driver. Your sojourn follows the footsteps of T.E. Lawrence, a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia, including a visit to the village of Wadi Rum, the natural spring that’s reputed to have been used by Lawrence during the Arab Revolt of 1916, and Khazali, a deep canyon that bears multiple inscriptions on its walls. You will enjoy a close-up exploration of this inimitable corner of the globe during an hour of free time, which may be spent on foot or astride a camel.

Your memorable Wadi Rum safari concludes with a refreshing buffet lunch at the rest house. Afterward, you will board your motor coach and return to your lovely Crystal ship in Aqaba.
