FAQs

Is Jordan dangerous for tourists?
Compared to many of its neighbors in the Middle East, Jordan is an exceptionally safe country to visit. In fact, the Jordanian government puts a lot of effort and money into making visitors feel safe through high-profile security and police presence in tourist regions and in hotels.
I heard about wild bird watching in Jordan, could you tell me more?
Bird-watchers from all over the world have started organizing week-long trips to Jordan to enjoy the sight of some rare species of indigenous birds and others that migrate annually between the northern and southern hemispheres. Jordan's location at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia means that birds from these three regions can sometimes be spotted in the same general area in Jordan.
What sort of birds can you see?
The eastern desert habitat is interrupted by the Azraq Wetland Reserve, and is home to aquatic and desert species along with migrants in spring, such as the Temmiinck's Horned Lark, Desert Lark, Hoopoe Lark, Desert Wheatear and Trumpeter Finch. In winter, Cranes and Imperial Eagles roam across this area, while in the Desert Castles area east of Amman you can see Thick-billed Lark and Red-rumped Wheatears.
In the western highland Mediterranean habitats, surrounded by open steppe country, the wooded areas of Ajloun, Zubia, Dibbin, and Dana are home to the Palestine Sunbird, Upcher's, Orphean, and Sardinian Warbler. The more open, steppe habitats typically contain the Spectacled Warbler, Long-billed

Pipit, Black-eared Wheatear, Woodchat Shrike and Linnet.
The rift margins and valleys of the western highlands represent the cross-roads of four bio-geographic zones. Wadi Shu'eib and Wadi Mujib with their perennial water courses are home to the beautiful Smyrna Kingfisher, while at the magnificent rocky gorges of Wadi Rum, Dana, Mujib and Petra you can find the Griffon Vulture, Bonelli's Eagle, Hume's Tawny Owl, Blackstart, different Wheatears, Scrub Warbler, Sinai Rose finch, House Bunting, Tristram's Grackle and Fan-tailed Raven.
The Dead Sea area and Wadi Arabah are home to Arabian and African species such as the Sand Partridge, Bar-tailed, Dunn's and Hoopoe Larks, Little Green Bee-eater, Blackstart, and Arabian Warbler.
Several fine color guides to bird watching in Jordan have been published in recent years.
I would like to go camping, where do you suggest?
Wadi Rum
Stunning in its natural beauty, Wadi Rum epitomizes the romance of the desert. With its "moonscape" of ancient valleys and towering sandstone mountains rising out of the sand, Wadi Rum is also home to several Bedouin tribes who live in scattered camps throughout the area. Climbers are especially attracted to Wadi Rum because of its sheer granite and sandstone cliffs, while hikers enjoy its vast empty spaces. For more information.
