Feynan Ecolodge: "A wonderful stay and an excellent example of
how tourism, the land, the people and nature can be combined.
A real highlight of Jordan!"
The constant Bedouin theme as we hiked was a pleasant surprise. It was culturally stimulating and added so much depth to our trek. Sleeping Bedouin style in the tents, as rustic as it was, is something I wouldn't change. The food prepared while on the trail was DELICIOUS ! I appreciated sitting with Yamaan after dinner, drinking tea, and how he brought out a special and different Jordanian treat every night! We were spoiled!
Yamaan Safady and Sherry Howland, Wildland's Jordan Program Director,
share a light moment on the Bedouin Trek to Petra.
Both Bill and I enjoyed the hiking the most. Coming to a Bedouin tent in the late afternoon was a real treat--especially when hot tea was offered. Petra was amazing but for me the journey there was the best. The hot meals served every evening were fantastic!
