Company information

Dana Biosphere Reserve Dana is Jordan’s largest nature reserve, covering some 320 square kilometers of spectacular mountains and wadis along the face of the Great Rift Valley. From scorching sand dunes in the west to cool mountain tops in the east, the Dana Biosphere Reserve is home to a great variety of wildlife. There are plants and animals characteristic of true desert, of Mediterranean forests and of the dry plains of Russia. In fact, Dana is really a melting pot of species from three continents: Europe, Africa and Asia. Such a combination of natural communities in a single area is unique in Jordan and many of Dana’s animals and plants are very rare. So far, a total of 700 plant species, 190 bird species, 37 mammal species and 36 reptile species have been recorded in the Reserve, of which 25 are known to be endangered, including the Sand Cat, the Syrian Wolf, the Lesser Kestrel and the Spiny Tailed Lizard. Without special care, some of these could disappear from Earth forever, which makes the Dana Biosphere Reserve a place of global importance.

Property information

Dana Guesthouse Perched on the edge of the precipitous cliffs of Wadi Dana, this beautifully styled building merges elements of village vernacular architecture with more modern elements, creating a structure with a definable Arabic character, unlike any other in Jordan, offering breathtaking views of the reserve. It consists of only 24 comfortable rooms, which van accommodate up to 65 person. Nine rooms share external toilets and showers, while 15 deluxe rooms have a private bathroom, adding character and ethnicity to the entire experience. Considering that, the Guesthouse was originally meant to house researchers, all the rooms have private terraces that offer spectacular views of the surrounding Wadi and mountains. The Guesthouse is also equipped with facilities for courses and conferences, making it a perfect location for retreats and workshops. The Guesthouse is open all year round.
