Water bottles – 1 litre/1 quart x 2 (2 litres total)

Training shoes or sandals for sightseeing and camp use

At least 1 long sleeve shirt with collar (for sun protection)

Antibacterial handwash (note that washing water can be limited in the desert)

Basic First Aid Kit including: A broad spectrum antibiotic, antiseptic cream, throat lozenges, diarrhoea treatment (Imodium), painkillers, plasters and blister treatment, Insect repellent, and re-hydration salts (Dioralite).

The following items are optional:

Repair kit – (eg. needle, thread, duct tape)

*For the November - February trips when night-time temperatures can fall below freezing in the desert, we recommend a 4 season sleeping bag, a warmer jacket such as a down-filled jacket, and thermal baselayers.

**As Jordan is an Islamic country, modest dress is preferable in the towns and cities. Shoulders should be kept covered, and full-length trousers/skirts are recommended. Shorts are OK once on trek.
