Car & Motorcycle

There are few petrol stations in the area, and little accommodation (except at the Dead Sea resorts and within the national parks of Wadi Mujib and Wadi Dana). It’s therefore important to the desert code and fill up every time you see a petrol station, otherwise you stand a very real chance of getting stranded.

Because of the proximity to the border with the Israel and Palestinian Territories, there are numerous police checkpoints in the area. Keep your passport, driver’s licence, rental contract and ruksa (car registration card) handy when driving.
