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