Mujib Nature Reserve
The Mujib Nature Reserve is a deep canyon that cuts through the highlands and drains into the Dead Sea.
Seasonal and permanent streams flow through many of the wadis, supporting a variety of plants in the river. These rivers also support a unique wildlife
The Mujib Reserve is an amazing passage-way for huge numbers of birds passing through every year starting from August: Black Storks, Buzzards, Honey Buzzards, Levant Sparrow Hawks, and many more.
The Reserve has two hiking trails:
The circular trail starting from 4 groups a week with maximum 25 persons per group, 3 km south of the Mujib Bridge along the Dead Sea and offers 5 to 6 hours of hiking through Wadi Mujib
The lower trail from 1 to 2 hours hiking up the river; you have to swim through water pools including the one at the big waterfall.
Life jackets are provided by the Reserve's office.
Visitors can enjoy amazing views while camping at the reserve, as the campsite has five large tents, barbecue grills and toilets.
It takes around an hour and a half drive from Amman to the Mujib Reserve.
