"This was one of my top 3 things I did in Jordan on this last trip. I just loved being out in the middle of nowhere"
“The nightly stargazing sessions on the roof under crystal clear desert skies, using the lodge's own high-powered telescope, are truly breathtaking”
"But of all the Bedouin tribes in Jordan, the most welcoming, friendly, and progressively and positively attuned towards fitting the Bedouin life into the modern world are the 'Azazmeh of southern Jordan."
“The dramatic change in altitude over such a short distance makes Dana a habitat multi-pack. In just one day you can experience four different ecosystems simply by descending into the Wadi.”
“Feynan, a shining star among the green lodges worldwide.”
“The rooms at Wadi Feynan...Inviting and comfortable. A place that you never want to leave and could simply curl up with a book and while away the days...”
"Our Bedouin guide Ali wowed us with his knowledge of the stars above. Eager to hear the names and the mythical stories behind each group of stars, we gathered around him and his telescope as he brought the night sky to life. There were tales of the beautiful queen of Cassiopeia, the winged horse known as Pegasus, and the chained lady also known as Andromeda. His knowledge of the stars was astounding."
"Located in Feynan — one of the few places in Jordan where a authentic Bedouin culture still exists — the Feynan Ecolodge is a true ecolodge located at the South Western edge of the Dana Biosphere Reserve."
"An overnight stay at Feynan Ecolodge is well worth it – especially to lie under the stars and test your astronomy skills in eerie silence"
