This horseback ride in the great south of Jordan, offers to riders who love the great outdoors an unforgettable experience with the first day devoted to exploring the astonishing ruins of Petra. Its ornate facades were carved into sandstone cliffs by the Nabataeans around 400 BC. A day on horseback in the UNESCO site of Beidha and little Petra, where you will have a first contact with our sure-footed horses, a magical day in a sumptuous site ending with an unforgettable evening in our comfortable camp located at the foot of the mountain. Music and Bedouin tradition around the fire. Our horses will be transported by truck to reach the Wadi Rum, avoiding the boring parts between the town of Wadi Musa and the desert. We continue on the spectacular part of the Wadi Rum, where we ride 5 days: an unforgettable experience riding Arabian horses from the desert climate, known for their endurance and speed. A ride through the spectacular landscape of the desert of Jordan, a vast wild space. Our desert team will make you discover the vast expanses of Wadi Rum on horseback avoiding the too touristy areas. You will be able to meet bedouin families living in traditional nomadic camps in Jordan. We have chosen the best service provider in Jordan, trained at our equestrian guide training center. She works with a Bedouin family based in Wadi Rum.

Wonderful mare: Gamar ! The horses were very well maintained, very kind, in great shape.
Comfortable quality saddles.
Great atmosphere in all our accommodation, good welcome, local meals.

Helene (France) - September 2023

Nothing to complain about our guides Sameeh and Ahmed, who showed us their country and shared their culture; always attentive to our comments and questions.
Perfect horses. My horse: Swetie, a very pleasant little mare to ride.
Perfect accommodations.
A superb trip which allows you to discover Jordan by combining culture (visit of Petra), relaxation (by the sea) and a magical ride on thoroughbred Arabians through Wadi Rum. Top organization and guides, everything went as planned.
Cap Rando Services: Nothing to complain about either, everything was perfect: registration, the organization with the various transfers, and the trip itself.

Marine (France) - In campings- October 2022

A warm welcome, we didn't have to manage anything, just let ourselves be carried away.
Marmoud (the guide) and Amhed (his partner) are very welcoming, caring and available. We share real beautiful moments of exchange. Marmoud perfectly manages the safety of riders.
The horses are in very good condition and the guide really takes care of them. We feel that he loves them, that he preserves them as much as possible during the week, that he takes care of them. He is very vigilant about their condition, gives them time to recover, they are well fed and pampered.
Saddle with sheepskin provided, great comfort !
We ate very well.
The night under the stars is Spartan but that's exactly what we're looking for in this kind of experience !
Management of my registration by Cap Rando Cheval: Smooth follow-up, perfect travel file, nothing to complain about !
In short: A magical ride, far from everything, where only serenity reigns. A week rich in meetings, discoveries, local and gourmet dishes, exchanges, laughter, sensations, freedom. We take in our eyes and our hearts. Happiness !
