3-Hour 4x4 Safari in Little Petra

    What to Expect
    Leave your Petra (Wadi Musa) hotel or camp in the afternoon, and travel northward by air-conditioned 4x4.

    After soaking in magnificent panoramas over the main Petra site from a viewpoint, drive on to Al Wu'ayra, a crumbled Crusader fort built by King Baldwin I during the 1100s.

    Then, pass through a Bedouin village as you continue into Little Petra, an age-old valley and area dotted with rock-cut buildings hewn by the ancient Nabataeans.

    Head off-road to see a Neolithic village dating from between 7,200 and 6,500 BC; one of the world’s oldest discovered settlements. Then, continue to Beir Al-Aris, a well-preserved Nabataean cistern. Composed of rock chambers and staircases, the cistern served as a well and is still used by locals for irrigation.

    Next, head through the Siq Al-Barid, the narrow canyon that opens to many of Little Petra’s monuments. See the carved porticos and caves used as caravan stations and dining spots by long-ago traders, and view the 1st-century ceiling frescoes in one of the caverns.

    Finally, visit a vantage point to experience awe-inspiring sunset views over Little Petra, admiring the scenery over a campfire-brewed tea and snacks. Your trip then finishes back at the original departure point.

    One of the most interesting monuments of the ancient city of the Nabataeans in Petra, Jordan. In order to be able to say I visited Petra, you must go to the Monastery. It was a huge facade carved in the sandstone mountains.

    The guide that our tour company had booked wouldn't do the times we wanted and so our driver tried to find us another guide at short notice. He found Dr Sami Al-Hasanat, lecturer in all things Petra at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University. He was just terrific. He grew up herding
