I never expected to go from Petra, Wonder of the World to discover a little known paradise that was the Dana Nature Reserve: The views were spectacular, the finds from picking fresh herbal medicine growing along the way to a little inquisitive turtle peaking out from the bush made me feel so jealous that God re-created too much of Heaven in one corner of the world, Jordan.

We stopped at the viewing point above the nature reserve, which doesn't really come alive until April apparently. Amazing views and scenery, quite awesome really!

We didn't venue into Dana nature area, but took in the beautiful panoramic view from high up. Stunning scenery with some welcoming locals.

The gorge is spectacular, and the relative lack of the bird and wildlife was due to the time of the year. But a very unprofessional guide, provided by the Dana Guesthouse, left a sour impression of the experience. He made it very clear at the end that he expected a bigger tip than the average one of US$10 that I gave him in addition to his fee. But a generous tip depends on three reasonable expectations. First of all, he should not have loud conversations, shouting into his cell phone regularly. After 12 conversations like this, I gave up counting, but they destroyed the tranquility of the place. Second, he should have at least basic English for conversation. Third, he should be able to talk knowledgeably in English about the birds, trees and plants. He pointed birds out, for example by saying “Two blue birds!” It was only when I got back that I was able to identify them as Arabian green bee-eaters. I am sure the problem is inadequate English, and lack of training. But to reward poor service like this with a huge tip simply increases the problem. His angry contempt at my tip showed that he does not understand basic requirements of good guiding, and tips are his biggest motivation, instead of giving a memorable experience to his clients.

Hiking in Dana Biosphere Reserve is magic and the Bedouin giving you a tea so generous of spirit. Ensure you have plenty of water and sun cream / hat!

A walk from Dana Guest house down to the canyon floor, and in our case a scramble along the dried river bed, gave is a great insight into the reserve. Spectacular views, and access to abandoned copper mine.
Just hope they stop the push to start mining again to save this special place.

My husband and I have recently returned from an amazing trek from Feynan to Little Petra which we organised independently. Our guide Suleiman was outstanding and having lived in the area all his life, he was very knowledgeable about the landscape. Suleiman's family and friends set up camp for us each night and cooked amazing food. The landscape is breathtaking and there is something unique about walking through this ancient landscape with a Bedouin guide and donkey for company. Suleiman speaks excellent English and is great company. His number is +962780754372

Beautiful area.
Lovely place for hiking. Dana trail, wadi Ghuweir...
But stay away from the entrance of the visitor center of Dana Nature reserve.
They ask 8 JOD entrance fee. I would have spend it if this wasn't a garbage belt. There is a picnic area and it's embarrassing, the whole area is full of waste. Shameless!
