I’m walking 640km across Jordan, and the days are counting down remarkably fast. The point of the trek is not only to challenge myself but to raise funds for @MSF_UK as I’ve written about extensively, start at number one and work on through to ten. If you believe in MSF’s work around the world or simply like my blog please head over to my just giving page and donate a few Pounds, Euro, Shillings or dollars to the cause.
Stage three passes through some beautiful scenery and natural environments as well as history dating back to the dawn of civilization and lucky hikers will get to experience Jordan under the stars or enjoy luxury lodge accommodation.

AirBnB has two entries for Tafila, but given both have Dana in their names I think they are a few Km’s off from where they should be, more careful research would be needed if you intended to break your hike here.

Wild camping spot in Wadi Sakakin and at end of day in Ras al-Feyd
Opportunities for wild camping in many places such as Qbour al Wahdat and Al-Farsha but the trail also runs past a few Bedouin camps. Towards Petra things start to become busy as we meet the tourist trail.
Little Petra Bedouin camp, “Little Petra Bedouin camp provides Bedouin tent rooms with the coziness and comfort what any traveler might seeks” contact – firstname.lastname@example.org, +962 7 7633 1431
There is a lot to choose from:
Air Bnb has a lot of options around Petra and Wadi Musa from $14 to $140 and trip adviser has over 60 hotels so take your pick, but perhaps pick with care as there are reports on Trip adviser of AirBnB’s not being as they advertise and other hotels offering scam tours.
Petra fig tree Villa Cosy villa in a quiet part of Wadi Musa, just a ten minutes walk away from the ancient and enchanting rose-red city of Petra from around $80 per night contact: +962 7 7909 2675 or email email@example.com
*EDIT* I’ve arranged to drop a supply bag at the fig tree and Jolanda is more than happy to host hikers from the Jordan trail at her BnB. The fig Tree is now also listed on the Jordan trail website.
