Photo of the Day ~ Timeless Splendor in the desert of Wadi Rum

in #travel3 years ago

Ships Of The Desert

These camels are valuable members of the Royal Desert Forces. The  Bedouins saddle up their camels on a regular basis to reach those areas of the desert that are too remote for trucks and 4 X 4's to patrol. The camels are also often paraded around for tourists to enjoy. Anyone in the area that has a female camel that needs to be bred, may bring them by the Patrol Headquarters. This is a free service provided by the Royal Desert Forces for residents. 

The Royal Desert Forces is a part of the National Police Force and is made up of over 4,000 Bedouin members and their camels.  They regularly monitor and patrol this wide open desert with it's sparse population. These remote desert areas make up over 4/5 fifths of Jordan.

So cool I'd love to go to Jordan one day. I've been all over the Middle East but it is the one place that has eluded me so far.

@agbaba you have to go and check it out. It's also lower cost, and allot of fun :-)

Really? That might need to be my next trip... I mean once I recover from Comic-Con ;)
