One of the best ways to get to know the local culture of the area is to spend a day with a local shepherd grazing the family’s goats in the wilderness of Feynan. Part of this authentic experience involves sharing lunch with the shepherd who will make a fire to bake the delicious “Arbood” bread and the sweet Bedouin tea.
This adventure will give you a snapshot of this ancient Bedouin occupation and what it entails. Female only guests can join one of the local female shepherds. The length of this trip depends on the time of year since the shepherds leave early and return near to sunset. In the winter expect this activity to be around 7-8 hours and in the summer 8-9 hours.
