Since long ago camels have been the traditional means of transportation for Bedouins who still herd the humped mammals in Wadi Rum or in Petra area. There is no better way to explore the desert, more full of life than you might expect, than atop a camel. In addition to beautiful landscapes, camel safaris also offer amusing wildlife encounters featuring desert foxes, mice, goats, and also numerous bird species. Depending on your preferences, the leisurely trip may be designed to last from a few hours to a few days. The most convenient time to visit the desert is during the spring and fall months due to more moderate temperatures.
