Occupied since the Bronze Age, it's surrounded by a 1700m-long wall, which was rebuilt many times during the Bronze and Iron Ages, as well as the Roman, Byzantine and Umayyad periods. There's plenty to see, but the Citadel's most striking sights are the Temple of Hercules and the Ummayad Palace. Then we are heading to the town of Madaba.

Day 3

place Petra / Wadi Rum

After breakfast, we are heading to Jordan’s crown jewel and travelers ultimate destination, the ancient lost city of Petra! The Nabateans carved this city in stone with simple tools 1500 years ago, and nothing will prepare you for the beauty and the sheer size of Al Khazna! Mark my words when it starts peeking at you by the end of the Siq (the pathway to Petra)! After our visit, we leave Petra from the service exit on donkeys, and transfer to a local family home in Wadi Mousa, to experience the Jordanian Mansaf. Mansaf is based on dried yogurt which is called Jameed. You see, Bedouins in the past didn’t have refrigerators to keep their yogurt, so they dried it. Drying intensifies the yogurt taste and gives it a tangy twist that spreads joy into the lamb meat while its boiling in it. The meat is served on a bed of rice, garnished with fried almonds and parsley. Mansaf is the national dish of Jordan, served in our weddings and occasions and is the sign of hospitality. Mansaf is enjoyed with strangers, not in a restaurant. For that, we will be visiting a Jordanian home tonight. For a real authentic cultural experience, and a real authentic Jordanian Mansaf. After lunch, we proceed for a 90 minutes’ drive to Wadi Rum! The valley of the moon, we arrive to the camp enjoy some free time and relax, take a shower, have some pictures. Maybe have a camel ride around the camp. By the evening, we are for a treat! A Bedouin specialty dinner: ZARB. What’s Zarb you may ask? Well, it’s a mix of meat like lamb and chicken, rice, potatoes and carrots, placed in a hole in the ground, which is filled with flaming coals. The hole is then covered, and after a few hours, the meat and rice are all smoked, steamed, and grilled, all at the same time! After dinner, you can enjoy a night of stargazing since there is no light pollution in the area. Overnight in your camp in Wadi Rum
