Zoning scheme

Wadi Rum has a zoning scheme to protect ecologically sensitive areas and ensure that a large part of the protected area keeps its wilderness character and remains as natural as possible. There are two zones in the scheme, a free access zone and a wilderness zone. Controls on visitor activities in the free access zone are minimal but in the wilderness zone there are limits on tourist and vehicle numbers and special events like marathons. Camping and climbing are also more restricted but access on foot or by camels and horses is encouraged. See the Rum map for full details
