The ride takes you from the mountainous area ofPetra with stunning views to the vast sand plains and steep rock formations of Wadi Rum.Accommodation and food & beverage:During this unique trip by horse through Jordans nature you will stay overnight in dome tents withmattresses. These tents can be shared by 2 people of used as single tent and you put up and takedown your own tent every day, off course assistance is given when needed.

For breakfast this will be: eggs, cheese, hummus, zaitand zater, cake, jam, cucumber, tomato, fruits, bread, tea and coffee, lunch: can be warm disheswith chicken , vegetable and rice, or different kind of salads and bread, depending on the weatherand the wishes of the guests, dinner: this will be 3 course with every night a different kind of soup,dishes like ‘sanniya’ (warm dish with vegetables, potatoes and chicken),‘maglouba’ (rice with spicesand chicken or meat and vegetables), barbeque, fried fish, vegetables, kofta, always combined withfresh salads and as dessert: fresh fruit and baklava with tea. Tea will always be served and waterand soft drinks will be available at all times in the cool box.We have catered for many vegetarians, so also this is no problem for ourchef.

None of the horsesare bad tempered as in bucking or rearing up.All saddles are English style and made from leather, every horse has a bit and English leather bridleaccording to his temperament. The saddle blankets have pockets for a water bottle, camera, suncream, etc. So this can be taken along during riding.
