The ride begins by climbing on top of a kneeling camel. Then, the guide signals for the camel to get up, and I find myself towering above the ground on an unfamiliar animal. The train of camels rode through the desert and up a hill. At the top, we stopped for a snack - tea, fresh bread, and cheese. From the top of the hill, we enjoyed a breathtaking view, with Jordan in the distance.
Wear pants and dark colors. There is an abundance of dirt and dust in the desert.
