At 420 meters below sea level, the Mujib Biosphere Reserve is the lowest nature reserve on Earth, and has recently been added to UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere program. Its rugged and spectacular mountains border the Dead Sea coast and are dissected by several river-filled canyons that offer the best river and adventure hikes in Jordan. Mujib’s complex river system and all-year water flow enable it to support a rich biodiversity. To date, over 557 species of plants, 18 species of mammals, and numerous species of resident and migratory birds have been recorded. Some of the mountain and valley areas are difficult to reach and offer safe havens for rare species of cats, mountain goats (Nubian Ibex). Our ‘chalet village’ on the shores of the Madash peninsula provides chalets with some of the best Dead Sea views along the coast. Visitors can enjoy private access to the unique salt waters of the Dead Sea, with its extraordinary medicinal properties. Each chalet has an uninterrupted sea view, shaded sun terrace, air conditioning and private bathroom.
The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) has established 9 protected areas, covering more than 1000 km2 of Jordan’s most beautiful and endangered places. RSCN is recognized as a pioneer among regional and international conservation groups for integrating nature conservation with the socio-economic development of local communities. RSCN’s projects include a wide variety of eco-tourism programs, and unique handicraft and organic food products. All of RSCN’s products and eco-tourism ventures are marketed under the brand “Wild Jordan” and the full range of our products are available at the Wild Jordan Center in Amman. RSCN’s nature-based businesses provide jobs tied to the protection of natural areas and create improved livelihoods for underprivileged rural communities. By purchasing any of our products or visiting any of our nature reserves, you are directly contributing to the protection of nature in Jordan.
The breathtaking scenery and the challenge of negotiating Mujib’s fast-flowing rivers make the reserve one of Jordan’s most popular natural attractions. Visitors need to have the ability to swim and have no fear of water and heights. Trails are tough, exciting, and offer a chance to swim and bathe in the cool, clear waters of the rivers. Hikers should expect to climb rocks against the water flow and jump into natural pools. Canyon trails include the thrill of abseiling down a 24m waterfall. Water trails are open between April and October, while dry trails are open from 1st of November till end of March. *Minimum age for water trails is 18 years old. Alternately, you can hike to other attractions in and around the reserve, including the Ibex enclosures where a small herd is kept as breeding stock for future release programs. Near the reserve, you can visit Qasr Riyashi, a ruined fort of uncertain date, or a rock formation against the backdrop of the Dead Sea that is believed to be the famous “statue” of Lot’s wife.
