    Explore Jordan with cazenove+loyd

    An extraordinary adventure in Jordan

    From the great starkness of Wadi Rum to the majestic ruins of bygone civilisations and the wonders of the Dead Sea, Jordan is one of the region’s most fascinating and strikingly beautiful destinations. The people are multicultural, extremely hospitable and take huge pride in welcoming visitors to their vibrant country. 

    This meticulously crafted trip for a small group of like-minded individuals is an unparallelled pass to Jordan – full of exclusive experiences usually reserved for foreign dignitaries. Your host, Henrietta Loyd, has perfected every detail, ensuring that your travels here are seamless. It is through our unrivalled knowledge and relationships on the ground that we can ensure the best guides, the finest places to stay and private access to both the highlights and the more off-the-beaten-track, undiscovered gems. 

    One of the most memorable experiences will be two nights staying in a spectacular tented camp in Wadi Rum, one of the world’s most mesmerising desert landscapes, booked out exclusively by cazenove+loyd. Here, you will enjoy a traditional Bedouin feast under the stars, before retiring to huge, plush, white tents, with double beds, running water and working electricity. You will wake up in the serenity and silence of the desert, surrounded by rolling sand dunes and huge sandstone mountains, before you have the entire day to explore this glorious landscape. Quite simply, staying in a luxurious camp deep in this natural wilderness is extraordinary. 

    All in all, we promise you a truly unforgettable trip in this captivating destination.

    What makes this trip spectacular?


    Staying at the most exclusive camp in Wadi Rum

    Having your own private desert camp in Wadi Rum all to yourself is an experience like no other. Peaceful and remote, this retreat makes you feel like a true explorer and has fantastic staff and delicious food too. It is the perfect base to explore this stunning region. In addition to this incredible camp, you will be staying in some of the best hotels in Jordan on this trip. 

    Discover Petra with a specialist Jordanian guide

    You will visit Petra with a top specialist guide who will bring this incredible place to life, informing and inspiring you as you explore at your own pace. Exploring this extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Site with a real expert is a sensational way to get under the skin of the ‘lost city’.

    Private access in Amman

    Through our connections, we have arranged for you to visit the Royal Stables for a private Arabian horse show performed by the king’s horses. From here, you will travel in one of the king’s very own vintage cars for an exclusive visit to the Royal Automobile Museum, set up in honour of the late King Hussein who was an avid car collector. This experience is only possible with cazenove+loyd. 

    Being accompanied by Henrietta Loyd

    The journey is designed by our co-founder, Henrietta Loyd, who will be leading the group every step of the way, ensuring that everything runs smoothly. Everything is flexible, and with her on hand throughout, the trip will evolve along the way to ensure it is tailored to the group’s needs and pace. This will be her fifth trip to Jordan so she is an extremely experienced and knowledgeable travel companion, and her passion for the country is infectious.


    Private Access

    Our hand-picked specialists, guides and leaders ensure unrivalled insider access that you wouldn't normally be able to achieve unless you were travelling as a group, allowing guests to experience the destination in a very special way.

    Specialist Guides

    Small group travel gives you an amazing opportunity to spend time with true experts in their field. Each trip is accompanied by an owner – either Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell or Henrietta Loyd – as well as top specialists, guides and leaders. 

    Travel with like-minded people

    Our small trips often form the beginning of life-long friendships. Much of the journey is spent as a group, but there is plenty of time to relax and enjoy your own space too. Henrietta and Christopher are brilliant at reading their guests and being proactive and reactive to the flow of the trip.

    Our small group trips are in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world. With that in mind, most of our itineraries include an inbuilt donation to a local initiative that you are likely to visit on the trip.

    The price of all of our small group trips includes domestic flights but excludes international flights. We suggest flights for our clients that work well with the itinerary and are happy to book and manage these flights. However, guests can also book their own international flights if they would prefer. 

    We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey. 

    We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility in order to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility on any one of our small group trips.

    We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.

    Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.

    We have put the relevant measures in place on every one of our small group trips, so that we are ready to welcome you safely. Sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties in which we will be staying are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements.
